We will be in Northern Ireland for a very short time and are trying to decide how much cash we may need. We will be leaving Donegal early one morning and heading to Belfast for the night. We would like to stop up at Giant's Causeway and/or the rope bridge if that's not too ambitious of a day. We will have the majority of the second day to spend in Belfast before heading to Dublin to catch our flight the next morning. Do you think most places in the areas mentioned will accept credit cards? Is an ATM the best location to get cash? I've read there are different types of pounds, but I imagine if we get cash from an ATM we will be ok to use what we got.
We're not sure what we'll be doing yet in Belfast, probably either a Black Taxi Tour or HOHO and the Titanic dockyard and museum. Do most pubs/Restaurants accept credit cards in Belfast? I want to minimize the trips to the ATM if possible.
Thank you for your help!
