1. From Belfast: Giant’s Causeway and Game of Thrones Day Tour

Discover the beauty of the Antrim coast and the world-famous Giant’s Causeway on a guided day tour. You will first visit Carrickfergus Castle before traveling on towards the old Antrim coastal route where you will wind through the small towns and villages, hearing the stories behind each one. Heading further along the coast before traveling through the nine Glens of Antrim, hearing the myths and legends of the fairies and leprechauns that reside in these Glens. Then, travel through the coastal town of Ballycastle before arriving at the Portaneevy View Point to see Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge from a distance. Stop to admire the views at White Park Bay and hear the stories behind the beautiful sights. Visit a number of the HBO TV series Game of Thrones locations; travel by Carnlough Harbour where Arya Stark swam, pass by Magharmorne Quarry where Castle Black is located, and finish at The Dark Hedges which was Kings Road. The final stop of the day is at the Giant’s Causeway where you can explore the historic stones and learn about the legend of the Giant Finn MacCool, and how and why he built the Causeway. After all your exploring is done you will travel directly back to Belfast via the inland route.

The Giant’s Causeway trip was amazing! As a solo traveller for the first time I was a bit nervous, but the trip was very well-structured, with enough time to do everything I wanted to, and I got to have an amazing experience with very little planning/effort on my part. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to explore more of Northern Ireland beyond just Belfast, because the views of the Antrim coastline were remarkable, as were the Dark Hedges. All in all, just very good craic, and very good value for money.

Excursão obrigatória para quem vai a Belfast. Excelente guia, muito simpático e com sentido de humor. Recomendo a 100%
