On this full-day excursion to the Giant’s Causeway you’ll leave Belfast at 09:45 with your Irish guide and fellow travel partners for a drive through the rolling farmland of County Antrim to the northern coast of Ireland – an area of outstanding natural beauty. Take an exhilarating walk across the rope bridge to Carrick-a-Rede Island for a real cliff-top experience. This 30-meter deep and 20-meter wide chasm is traversed by a rope bridge erected by salmon fishermen. Visitors bold enough to cross to the rocky island are rewarded with fantastic views of Rathlin and the Scottish islands. Consider crossing at your own risk for a small optional charitable donation to the National Trust, the registered UK charity that maintains the bridge. The Giant's Causeway has often been described as the 8th wonder of the world, and once you have visited the site you’ll quickly see why. The area consist...
Our pick up was very late due to some passengers not coming back to the coach at the correct time. We were waiting to be collected in Belfast and were about to give up and do something else when the coach appeared. Please remember to keep to the times advised by the bus driver. Our driver Paul was wonderful. He was funny but very helpful and considerate given that my husband was disabled and required a wee bit of help getting on and off the coach. Lunch was expensive, so bring your own or be prepared to spend a fair bit. I walked down to the Giant's Causeway bypassing the visitor's centre thinking that I could get the shuttle bus back up the very steep hill. Please check that the bus is working. The day I was there it was not and apparently a sign was posted in the visitor centre which I did not see. The journey uphill was daunting and on a very hot day, exhausting. The Causeway was fabulous and I am glad I went despite the unwanted walk uphill. Highly recommended tour.
