1. From Belfast: Private Giants Causeway Coastal Tour
Design your ideal day trip when you travel to the spectacular Giants Causeway with a private driver. Stop where you like, for as long as you wish, making this private day tour a truly personalized experience. Traveling from Belfast along the scenic coastal route, the first big attraction is Carrickfergus Castle. The Norman castle from the 17th century is the best-preserved medieval structure in Ireland. Continuing along the beautiful scenic coastal road through seaside towns, there are plenty of places to stop for photos along the way. Drive past small seaside villages including Whitehead and Ballygalley before stopping at Glenarm Castle for a photo at the barbican. Grab refreshments at Carnlough Harbour before continuing your journey to see Carrick-A-Reed rope bridge. Lunch is at the Causeway Hotel, with Bushmills Distillery located nearby. Can you resist a visit to the distillery for a wee taste of their famous whiskey? No trip up north would be complete without a visit to the Dark Hedges tree tunnel, made famous by the "Game of Thrones" tv series. Even those who are not fans of the show will appreciate the beauty of this unique road with its overhanging trees. The big highlight of your trip is the UNESCO-listed Giants Causeway. Legend says the unique rock formation is the remains of a bridge used by giants which connected Ireland and Scotland. If there are other sights and attractions you want to visit, your guide is happy to oblige. You can change the itinerary for your day trip to suit your group's interests.
