Getting to Queen's University Belfast 

The summer school is fully residential and will take place at Queen's University Belfast, which is 6 miles from Belfast City Airport.  This is the most convenient airport and it is easiest to get a taxi to the campus for ~£9.  For further information about flights to Belfast City airport, please see (UK Routes include Birmingham, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Exeter, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds Bradford, Liverpool, London City, London Heathrow and Southampton.  European routes include Alicante, Amsterdam, Brussels, Faro, and Malaga)
