Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Emerge early and depart from central Belfast in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Giant’s Causeway. Along the way, listen to legends surrounding the formation of the mystifying natural wonder that consists of hexagonal rock columns that fit together like a puzzle. Climb the coastal stones, listen to intriguing myths, and feel the invigorating ocean breeze as you spend some leisurely time at the natural landmark.

Travel the scenic Antrim Road to the famous Carrickfergus Castle, an impressive Norman fortress considered one of Northern Ireland’s best preserved. Hear of the structure’s intriguing history before traveling to the Old Mushmills Distillery, home to one of Ireland’s favorite brands of the amber nectar. Revitalize with lunch at the distilleries bar (own expense), and purchase special whiskey-related souvenirs from the gift shop (own expense).

Then, it's onto the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. On arrival, conquer your fears and walk tentatively across the rickety bridge suspended 100 feet (30 meters) above the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean (own expense). If you’d prefer to keep your adrenaline levels stable, opt for a bracing walk along the coast instead. 

Relax during the scenic journey back to Belfast, which passes the medieval Dunluce Castle, and bid your guide farewell in central Belfast.

Tiring...but ever so worth it!!!!

Our guide, Steven, was absolutely charming and made the whole experience delightful. The trip lasted all day with several stops in between. Whilst it was a tiring day, we loved every minute of it. The Game of Thrones locations were interesting for my partner and I as we are big fans and The Giant's Causeway was spectacular - exceeding either of our expectations. We would like to thank Steven for making the trip so fun and entertaining. He is a credit to the company.

Overall the tour was good. Patrick, our tourist guide was helpful giving us nice tipa to enjoy our day better and was also setting a nice mood in the bus( there were some dad jokes). The time per stop was adequate to enjoy as many as possible. We were on a group of 32 people while the max is 60, i would say 30 is a great number to be with.

The tour was excellent. From arriving at the pickup point by the Europa Hotel through the full day to returning the organisation was top notch. Patrick was an excellent guide (even with all his dad jokes). He managed the delicate balance of covering the history and avoiding getting entangled in the politics. We were fortunate with the weather, which helped, but even on a less nice day I'm sure the trip would be impressive. Our tour included stops at Carrickfergus Castle, Carnlough, Cushenden Caves, The Dark Hedges, lunch near Balintoy, the Giants Causeway and a brief stop near Dunluce Castle on the way back to Belfast.

An extremely well organised and coordinated trip from the beginning and throughout the day. The bus driver Ray was so knowledgeable and it really added to the enjoyment of the bus journey.So professional in all that he did. Never mentioned anything about a “tip” but his tip was very well deserved. Very comfortable bus. Overall a hugely enjoyable experience and one which I would highly recommend. Couldn’t fault it.
