Accommodation for our 2020 programme is not included in this event package. There are however a number of hotels close to Belfast’s historic Cathedral Quarter which would merit consideration.

The Malmaison and Merchant hotels are located in historic buildings and have an excellent reputation but can be expensive. The Ramada Encore and Premier Inn would be cheaper options. Alternatively, you may wish to stay elsewhere in Belfast or its vicinity.

There are also hotels located in the vicinity of PRONI that may also be worth looking into.

Go to to check out accommodation options.

A number of delegates in the past have also rented serviced-apartments within walking distance of the Cathedral Quarter and usually this can prove to be incredibly cost effective.

However, the Foundation is unaware of how these delegates made their bookings in the past but a quick google can illuminate a number of rental options.

Important Note: The pick up and drop-off point for the duration of our June programme will be on Talbot Street at the junction with Dunbar Street (Outside the Ramada Encore). There will be a brief 15-20 minute walk each morning as delegates will be escorted from Talbot Street by Foundation staff. For delegates who would prefer not to walk transport will be arranged.

Below is an image of the an area in Belfast close to the pick-up point each morning. It is recommended that delegates stay within this area as complications might arise with regards travel if you are further outside this area.
