Full description
Take a full-day scenic drive to Belfast from Dublin, and explore the birthplace of the Titanic ocean liner. Dominating newspaper headlines since 1969 for all the wrong reasons, but now experiencing a new dawn, Belfast has rapidly become a must-see city for visitors to Ireland for all the right reasons. Learn about the customs of the Ulster Irish and Ulster British communities as you meet colorful characters. You can even take an optional black cab tour of the city center to see all the main sights. 100% Irish guides take great pride in their strong friendships with Belfast's majority Protestant ethnic British community. You will also visit the Celtic crosses at Monasterboice, set in the picturesque countryside of County Louth. Wander among the ruins of the early Christian settlement, where the 2 churches are thought to date back to the 14th century, or even earlier. Admire the round tower, typical of early medieval Ireland, and gaze at the biblical inscriptions on the 10th century crosses, including Muiredach's High Cross, considered the finest of its kind in Ireland.

Pleasant and fun trip

Unfortunately, I forgot his name / Belfast, Monesterboice, 21.11.2018 / I can give the best possible opinion. He communicated a lot of information and told interesting stories. We weren't bored for a minute. The bus was clean and comfortable. There was very pleasant music all the way, I have a new favorite singer: Paddy Reilly! Thanks. In Belfast, 2 hours proved to be insufficient.
