Do you want to watch the Winter Olympics during your stay in Dublin?

RTE is the name of the TV channel with the broadcasting rights to the Winter Olympics 2018. But, do you know the name of any Irish athlete that will participate in the Winter Olympics 2018? I don’t! Why is that important? The people of Ireland has little to no interest in the Winter Olympics, due to the fact that they have no famous athletes participating. The result is, therefore, people are not interested in watching the broadcasts. So, even though RTE has the rights to air the event, they will probably only air summaries from the happenings, and maybe a few events live. I am not sure about this, but that is at least what I expect to happen.

RTE is a free channel, and you can watch RTE in your hotel room, in pubs and also on the Internet. But, what should you do if you want to watch the Winer Olympics online, all the events, all the competitions, and it cannot be done on RTE? In this article in the IP Address Guide, you will find instructions on how to watch the Winter Olympics 2018 online, so I recommend for you to read the article, and hopefully, it will help you out!

Driving from Dublin to Belfast

If you take the quickest road between the two capitals, then you will cover a distance of approximately 170km/105 miles. Based on the roads this is a distance you should be able to cover in about two hours, exactly the same speed as most trains traveling between the cities do. It should be mentioned that the train stations in both Dublin and Belfast are centrally located, so if you want less stress, then using the railway could be a good option.

The main road leading to Belfast from Dublin travels almost along the ocean, and you will drive close to cities such as Drogheda, Dundalk and Lisburn before you arrive to Belfast.

What are you gonna do in Belfast? You can find quite a lot of suggestions for nice programs, activities and attractions in the Belfast Guide.
