From Belfast: Giant's Causeway with Titanic Museum Admission

1. From Belfast: Giant's Causeway with Titanic Museum Admission

Visit the Titanic Museum for around 1.5 hours and learn the story of the Titanic ocean liner and her ill-fated maiden voyage. The story comes alive with innovative technology, scale models, and more. The museum expands over 9 galleries and draws together special effects, dark rides, and full-scale reconstructions. The experience contains interactive features so you can truly explore the Titanic story in an insightful light. The journey will take you beyond the aftermath of the sinking to the later discovery of the ship. The tour will also take you to the present day with a tour of the live undersea exploration center.   Enjoy a photo stop at the beautiful Dunluce Castle. This 13-century castle ruin is known as the nicest photo opportunity of all castles in Ireland and will make any amateur photographer look like a professional photographer. Next, be prepared to be met by the most spectacular sight, the Giant's Causeway. This wild and beautiful formation is a consequence of ancient volcanic activity, the solidified lava now layered across 40,000 hexagonal columns stretching for a distance of over 6 kilometers (approximately 3.7 miles). Stroll along this UNESCO World Heritage Listed Site for around 1.5 hours and see formations such as the Wishing Chair and the Giant' Boot and Organ.   There is a different version of how the Causeway was formed. The Irish giant Finn McCool, while preparing for battle with his Scottish rival, is said to have angrily fired rocks into the sea to forge a path to nearby Scotland. However, on seeing the size of his would-be adversary, he quickly retreats tearing the ground and ripping the stones as he hastily moves. Similar types of stone found in Scotland give weight to this tale of two feuding giants. Even today the Causeway continues to stir the imagination and inspire folklore.  Stop at the Dark Hedges for 30 minutes, a centuries-old lane of beech trees that have been featured in films and on television. In the TV series Game of Thrones, the Dark Hedges was featured in season 2 as the King's Road.

Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 129 reviews

What a wonderful insight into industrial Belfast , not only its world renowned shipbuilding, but the vital part that women played in the linen Mills and the supporting tradesmen and labourers who contributed to Belfast s booming economy from the mid 1800s. So much to learn about Titanic itself and how these workers and labourers took immense pride in whatever little part they played in its construction and in that of the hundreds of other ships that made Belfast shipbuilding synonymous with quality , ambition, luxury and class . The journey of the building of Titanic is very powerful matching the shipyard sounds and images. The virtual tour of Titanic from the keel up is spectacular and the highlight of the visit. Displays of cabins and artefacts are superb Seeing the real time discovery of Titanic is unforgettable. I could watch it again and again . A fabulous experience not to be missed. Catering and rest facilities very good.

This tour was fantastic! Patrick was a brilliant tour guide, very humorous, knowledgeable, entertaining and kind! Thoroughly enjoyed the trip which was very well planned. The bus was full of lively Irish music and Patrick was very kind in offering to take pictures of us at landmarks. Would absolutely recommend this tour!

Paul was excellent with a great insider knowledge of Belfast. Lovely sense of humour and full of interesting facts and figures. Would absolutely go on a tour with Paul again. The weather helped of course (!) but the microphone and ear pieces were brilliant.

Great trip. The whole experience was brilliant. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a good value for money.

The whole day was Brillant and the tour guides and driver really great.
