Belfast Central is a railway station serving the city of Belfast in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

Located on East Bridge Street in the city, Central is the northern terminus of the popular inter-city Enterprise service to Dublin Connolly, which runs every two hours. As well as this service, Central is also served by Northern Ireland Railways, which operates routes to other locations in Northern Ireland, including Derry, Bangor, Portadown and Larne.

Regular services also operate between Central and the City's other main stations: Great Victoria Street, Botanic and City Hospital. Intending passengers travelling to and from Central are at present, upon presentation of a valid rail ticket, permitted to travel at no cost on Belfast's Metro service to the city centre.

Despite the name of the station, it is significantly further from Belfast city centre than Great Victoria Street station. The station was opened on 26 April 1976.cite web | title= Central 1 | work= IRRS| url=http://www.irrs.ie/Common%20Files/NIR.htm| accessdate=2008-05-08] By the 1990's, it became clear that the facilities at Central were in need of upgrading. A major refurbishment programme started in 2000 and was completed in 2003.cite web | title= Central 2 | work= Translink| url=http://www.translink.co.uk/20030325newcentral.asp| accessdate=2008-05-08]
