About Belfast Harbour

The 400 year-old history of the Port in Belfast is inextricably linked with the development and progress of the City of Belfast. Throughout the centuries, the Port's history recognises the importance of the foresight and bold vision of previous generations of Trustees, Operators and Commissioners in creating the basis of the modern Port. 

The Gateway to Ireland

Established in 1847, Belfast Harbour is Belfast's port authority and operates the principal maritime gateway on the island of Ireland. The harbour estate covers an area of 2,000 acres representing 20% of Belfast City area and is also Northern Ireland's logistics and distribution hub and home to major businesses including Microsoft, Harland & Wolff, Capita, CitiGroup and Bombardier.
