Full description

Tour the coastline of Northern Ireland on this day trip from Dublin. Visit the Giant's Causeway, the Dark Hedges, Dunluce Castle, and Belfast.

Depart Dublin and travel North, stopping at a service station along the way for breakfast to buy lunch and to stretch your legs. Your first attraction is to take a 5-minute photo stop at the famous and picturesque ruins of Dunluce Castle. Afterward, head to the Giant's Causeway, formed from about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. Enjoy at least 2 hours at the UNESCO World Heritage Site and get up close to the hexagonal columns, often referred to as the "8th Wonder of the World." Take in the fantastic views of the Irish Sea and then spend around 20 minutes traveling along the avenue of intertwined beech trees known as "Dark Hedges." Planted in the 18th-century by the Stuart family, the beautiful sight was used in the Game of Thrones series and the Transformers movie. Lastly, go to Belfast to see the capital of Northern Ireland and the birthplace of the Titanic ocean liner. Stop next to Belfast City Hall and spend approximately 1.5 hours exploring the city. Do some sightseeing, shopping, and grab some food before continuing the journey home.

I loved my experience, The guide Dany was so loveluy and heartwarming, never seem someone so nice. He's stories and the irnformation he gave us were very good. Mark our Driver even though he didn't talk that much he was very nice too and he drove us to every destination with maximum security, we felt safe inside the bus with him at the helm.

I did this tour with my husband and my in-laws. We had such an amazing time! Our tour guide Anthony did a great job telling us the history of Northern Ireland and gave us fantastic recommendations for Belfast and Dublin. Brian was our tour driver, and he was equally wonderful. If you have a day with no plans while in the Dublin area I highly recommend this tour. The absolute best value for your money. It is a must do for many reasons!

Such an awesome day trip! Danny, our guide, was so incredible! He was very knowledgeable, funny and made everyone feel super comfortable throughout the long day. He went way above and beyond to be a great guide and we had a great day with him. The spots we stopped were all really incredible. I highly recommend getting out of Dublin for a day trip on this tour!
