Duration: 14 hours
See Northern Ireland's spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site – Giant's Causeway – on a day trip from Dublin. From the comfort of your luxury coach, you'll see the Causeway's famous rock formations alongside dramatic coastal scenery, as you experience one of the greatest road journeys in the world. Additionally, your Giant's Causeway day trip includes visits to Belfast (Northern Ireland's capital city) and the unique Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.
Your day trip to Giant's Causeway will set off from Dublin in the early morning to make good use of the quiet roads. There will be a brief coffee stop as you enter Northern Ireland, before continuing north to the picturesque Dark hedges. This magical road is straight from a story book. The Dark Hedges represents the King’s Road in the famous television series “Game of Thrones”. The avenue is made up of beech trees that were planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century to impress visitors as they approached the Gracehill House. You will have time to have a brief walk around and snap some photos before returning to the bus to continue the journey to the Giant's Causeway.
The Giant's Causeway area is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and bearing testament to this status, you'll find the Causeway coast to be an area of unsurpassed natural beauty. As you travel, pass romantic towns and quaint villages, surrounded by isolated ruins, rocky shores and green glens. Unsurprisingly, the Causeway coastal road is often referred to as one of the world's greatest road journeys, so sit back and enjoy the ride!
Your route back from Northern Ireland to Dublin follows the Giant's Causeway south, so you'll have further time to take in the amazing views and spot coastal wildlife. There will be a stop in Belfast on the return journey and you’ll have chance to stretch your legs and have a look around the capital city, which has undergone extensive regeneration work in recent years. Your day trip arrives back in Dublin in the early evening, after an exhilarating day at Northern Ireland's most spectacular location.
