The SSE Arena is a part of the Odyssey Complex, in addition to W5 and Odyssey Pavilion. It is a large entertainment and sports venue, located in Titanic Quarter in Belfast, which is also a part of the Belfast Harbour Estate. With its 11 000 people capacity, it hosts sporting events such as Belfast Giants games and concerts of the world-class performers. The venue got its name after a major refurbishment in September 2015. Previously it was known as Odyssey Arena.
The SSE Arena is situated in a Laganside development, on the east side of the river Lagan.
By train and tube: the nearest station to the SSE Arena would be Central Station where you can get from pretty much any major town in Northern Ireland. The railway station is within 10 minutes of walking distance from the venue.
By bus: choose Translink Metro Service 26 as well as 26 A and B. The bus leaves for Belfast City Centre at Donegall Square West and stops just outside the Odyssey Pavilion.
By car: take the M3 motorway and exit, following the signs to Titanic Quarter. Follow the traffic; the venue will be on your left-hand side.
International: if you are travelling from Belfast International Airport, your drive to the SSE Arena will take 20 minutes via M2 and only 7 minutes if you are coming from the George Best Belfast City Airport (take the Sydenham By-Pass/A2 in this case). On top of that, there is an Airport Express 600 to George Best City Airport which departs from Europa Bus Station and also stops at The SSE Arena, Belfast.
The SSE Arena has its own parking with 1500 spaces available. Parking spots, located closer to the Arena are reserved for blue badge holders.
