Transport to the Medical Library

The Medical Library is on the ground floor of the Mulhouse Building in the grounds of the Royal Victoria Hospital.  Car parking at the Royal can be problematic.  So why not walk to the Library, or take public transport?


It is a 15-20 minute walk from the MBC/Belfast City Hospital (exit hospital at Donegall Road; walk along Donegall Road, then down Roden Street, cross footbridge over Westlink; Mulhouse Building will be in front of you at the top of Mulhouse Road).  A detailed route map is shown below.  As usual, when walking in a city environment, take common sense precautions such as not walking alone, particularly after dark, and being aware of what's around you.
