Trains from Belfast to Glasgow: Journey Details

Although you have to cross the Irish Sea, it's easy to catch trains from Belfast to Glasgow. The best route is to catch a train to the port of Dublin, and then a rail ferry to Holyhead. From there, you can take an Arriva Trains Wales service to Chester, where you can catch a service with Virgin and TransPennineExpress to Glasgow. The journey time can be between 10 and 18 hours. An alternative route is to take the ferry from Belfast to Cairnryan, a bus to Ayr and then a Scotrail service from Ayr to Glasgow. This can take as little as 6 hours.

Taking the Train from Belfast

Trains from Belfast to Glasgow will leave from Belfast Central Station, which can be found to the east of the city centre. The Central Station enjoys excellent links to other parts of Belfast via the overground network, and CityBus services also stop just outside the ticket halls. From the city centre, catch buses 6A, 78 or 4A - and leave around 20 minutes to get to your train.
