Parts of Belfast are designated as Quarters. Hiring a Belfast rental car will mean you can drive to all four quarters and make the most of your visit. The Cathedral Quarter has been a designated conservation area since 1990 and is full of historical architecture.  It has narrow cobbled streets and single storey buildings in Skipper Street, once built for skippers and Donegal Street with its large imposing grander buildings dating back to the mid 17th century; the whole area is full of character, history and intrigue.

As well as the old Belfast, a short drive in your hire car will bring you to the Cathedral Quarter which is full of newer buildings housing art galleries and restaurants. The Titanic Quarter, the name taken from the famous ship built in Belfast, has a rich maritime history and having been given £billions to build a new waterfront development, will really add to Belfast’s tourist appeal. Once you have seen enough of Belfast, why not drive your rental car to visit other areas of Northern Ireland.
