Getting to Iceland from Ireland
Travelers coming to Iceland from Ireland have a few options for how to get there. The more flexible you can be, the more you’re likely to save on the cost of your travel. You can fly direct from Belfast, but if you can first hop a short flight to the UK, you can save more on a direct flight from there to Iceland.
The largest carrier, Icelandair, offers multiple daily flights from Glasgow, Manchester, and London to Reykjavik for 130-350 euros each way depending on when you go and how far in advance you book. The flight takes about three hours. If that’s a larger price tag than you’d hoped for, check out the low-cost carrier IcelandExpress. Flights from Belfast, Edinburgh, and London to Reykjavik only cost about 45-75 euros each way (again depending on when you book). Flying in off season (September to May) will cost less than it will in summer peak season, and generally the sooner you book, the lower the cost.

It’s impossible to drive to Iceland, but you can take a three-day ferry trip. The Smyril Line runs from Denmark to Iceland (via the Faroe Islands) and operates all year, except from January to March, with prices starting at 65 euros per person.
