Belfast hotel and transport information

View larger map

We will be providing updates to this page at regular intervals over the next two years, including full details of the Room Rate Offer with our venue at the Hilton Hotel and other Hotels across the city of Belfast. We anticipate hotel room booking to open during 2018. Please check back for news and updates or follow us on Twitter for the latest announcements.

Room rates stated on this page were updated on 19 February 2017.

Venue Hotel:

Hilton Hotel

Our venue hotel for TitanCon 2019 will be the Hilton Hotel. The Hilton is located right next to the Waterfront convention centre, in fact there is a corridor linking the two buildings so you don't even have to go outside. We are also planning to run some of our programming and evening activities in the Hilton's conference facilities. The Hilton offers excellent accommodation with breathtaking views of the Lagan River.

We have already secured 100 rooms in the Hilton for TitanCon 2019 and are currently in negotiation to get the best possible room rate that we can get. We will update this page in the near future with full details of the rooms and the offer rates that are available.

The Hilton has 12 accessible rooms with wide doorways and walk in showers rather than bathtubs. We realise this is not a large number of rooms and will be working with hotel reservations to ensure that those with the greatest need are allocated those rooms. We are in talks with other hotels in the area to secure more accessible bedrooms, though these will unfortunately be slightly further away from the Waterfront venue.

The Linen House Hostel

This hostel is located in a converted linen house, hence the name. The Linen House Hostel offers the cheapest accommodation anywhere in the city, however it is the furthest away from our venue of all the hostels and hotels listed on this page.

A group of BWB members stayed here during Belfast Moot 1 in 2009 and while it's not as bad as some reviews make it out to be I personally would not stay here again. However if you need cheap accommodation you will not beat this price.
- theMountainGoat

Dorms from £6.50 per night, Private room from £15 per night.

Actually it looks like the Linen House website no longer exists and I suspect the hostel might therefore be closed, but I don't know that for sure.

Guesthouses and Serviced Apartments:

There are many affordable guesthouses within close proximity to our venue which will make a good quality alternative to staying in a hotel.
