Full description

Enjoy a full-day scenic tour to the basalt rocks of the Giant’s Causeway. Formed more than 60 million years ago, the legend of the rocks features an Irish giant named Finn who was challenged to bridge the sea between Ireland and Scotland.

Departing from Dublin, stroll along the windswept path of County Antrim on arrival, and get panoramic views of the Mull of Kintyre and Rathlin Island. Continue along the coastal road, and enjoy views of Whitepark Bay and Portbradden.

Then, explore the 37,000 basalt “stepping stone” columns of the Giant’s Causeway. 

Towering from the cliff and disappearing under the sea to reappear on Straffe Island, learn the legend of Finn before driving along the Causeway Coastal route between Ballycastle and Dunluce to experience one of the most dramatic roads in the world.

See wind-blasted cliffs and unspoiled beaches. Stop at Dunluce Castle to tour the former residence of the McDonnell clan, considered by many to be the most romantic castle in Ireland. 

En route, pass through Bushmills, famed for its fantastic whisky. End with an orientation tour of Belfast city center, including City Hall, Victoria Square, and the famous Titanic Dry Dock, where the famous ocean liner was built.

Our guide was Richard who was very informative. He was a fantastic driver guide who provided lots of stories with a historical input aswell as humour. I went on a Sunday and also recommend following his suggestions of the black taxi cabs and the hot food pub lunch

Richard our driver was so knowledgeable and entertaining. He made sure we stayed right on time but didn’t make us feel rushed. The stories he told made us feel like we knew him, Amanda and his kids personally. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Dublin

Our driver/guide Frank was entertaining, informative and had a great sense of humour. Made for a very enjoyable tour, plus seeing the beauty of the Irish countryside, history and a great choice for our lunch stop (food was delicious) Thank you for an awesome adventure.
