Our Venue - the Hilton Belfast

The main venue for the convention will be the 4-star Hilton Belfast hotel. The Hilton is situated on the banks of the Lagan River in the heart of the city. For the Eurocon, we have secured all of the Hilton’s function space (with 9 meeting rooms including the Lagan Ballroom which will seat up to 450 people) and two-thirds of the 198 available bedrooms. See the accommodation page for more information on the accommodation options at the Hilton and elsewhere.

The Hilton is located directly adjacent to the Waterfront Convention Centre. The Waterfront opened a new state of the art conference space in 2016 to complement their existing Concert Hall. We will use the Studio for the bigger programme items.

Amenities and Attractions

The Hilton features all the amenities that one would expect from a high-quality major chain hotel as well as great views of the Lagan River and surrounding landmarks.

Dining is provided through the Sonoma Restaurant which offers local, Irish, and European cuisine, all to be enjoyed along with panoramic views of the river. Cables Bar offers cocktails, beers, and other drinking options alongside its own lunch and dinner options, and remains open until 1 a.m. (food service until 11 p.m.).

The Hilton’s spectacular setting is complemented with convenient access to local attractions: for more information, see our Belfast information page.


Location and Directions

The Hilton is situated within a five-minute walk of the city centre, with easy access for people arriving by air, rail, or car. Belfast City Airport is within a 10-minute drive.

Detailed directions for getting to the hotel can be found on the Hilton’s website.


Transport:

TitanCon will not organise any transportation from Dublin to Belfast for those at WorldCon, but it is easy to travel to Belfast by bus and train.

Airports

If you're flying in to Belfast there is a choice of two airports: Belfast City and Belfast International. The George Best Belfast City Airport is by far the closest of the two but both offer regular bus services to Europa Bus Station for easy transit.

Bus

The Europa Bus Station is Belfast's main bus depot and offers bus services across the city, to the airports and to Dublin. Visit the Translink website for more details.

Trains

The Translink website also details Northern Ireland's rail services.

Please note, there are Engineering works on the line between Dublin and Belfast on the week of the convention, so there will be a rail replacement bus for part of the journey. See the Irish Rail website for further details.
