The 6km of sheer cliffs rising to over 90m and forming a series of bays are spectacular. We include the all-new innovative and imaginative Giant's Causeway Visitors' Center. You will be provided with free audio guides!
We visit the Dark Hedges and Ballintoy, famed by the hit TV series Game of Thrones!
From the Giant's Causeway to Belfast, and the magnificent rope bridge this tour has it all! Definitely the most comprehensive tour of Northern Ireland!
On this day tour, you will 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.
The tour departs 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 wonderful views of Whitepark Bay and Portbradden.
It is then time to 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 of Northern Ireland. 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 a town famed for its fantastic whisky, Bushmills. 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.
