The fast N1/A1 road connects Belfast to Dublin in 160 km (100 miles) with an average driving time of just over two hours. Only a few customs formalities are observed at the border. When in Belfast, it's best to avail yourself of the many parking garages. If you opt for street meter-ticket parking, check the posted regulations because many spots become no-parking during rush hours. Throughout Northern Ireland, there are plenty of parking lots in the towns, and you should use them.
