Full description
With an early start in Dublin this tour is designed to take you to the best locations in Northern Ireland to ensure with the limited time you have that you will make the most of the day ahead. Enjoy a relaxed journey and listen to the stories and history from the guide as we take you on an adventure you will never forget. The first stop of the day is at the Giant’s Causeway. This UNESCO world heritage site is truly a view to behold. With Thousand of interlocking basalt columns spreading across the coastline you will discover how the strange rock formation was formed thousands of years ago due to a volcanic eruption. Or maybe it is the legend Finn McCool himself that created the rock formation as he battled with the Scottish Giant? Dunluce castle is just around the corner. Spend 10 min here taking in the views from the Atlantic Ocean and hear the waves crash against the rocks. Experience the castle from a spectacular angle. Situated on the sheer cliff edge the ruins are truly majestic and have a lot of history and myths locked up in the walls. A perfect spot for a memorable photograph! As we travel through the Glens of Antrim we will visit the Dark Hedges. Made famous (Not that it was needed) by the hit TV series “ Game of Thrones” as the Kings road you will have the opportunity to walk along the avenue of Beech trees. Planted over 200 years ago as a stunning entrance to James Stuart’s new house it still lives on and still impress visitors today. Reaching Belfast we have one last stop and definitely another highlight of the day. The world renowned Belfast Titanic Exhibition extends over nine galleries, with multiple dimensions to the exhibition. From special effects, rides, full-scale reconstructions and interactive features you will explore the Titanic story in a fresh and insightful way from her conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to her infamous maiden voyage and catastrophic demise. The journey goes beyond the aftermath of the sinking, to the discovery of the wreck and continues into the present day in the Ocean Exploration Centre. With the entrance ticket included in the price of the tour this is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this attraction. When time allows we will stop in Belfast city to have a quick break before heading back to Dublin, where you will be home in good time to have a great night out to finish a great day out!

We went on a tour to Belfast from Dublin and visited several stops including Giant's Causeway and the Titanic Museum. Our guide Mark and driver Marco were wonderful hosts and truly great guides! We learned some history of Northern Ireland while also having an appropriate amount of down-time during the bus ride. The bus was comfortable and even included wifi! I appreciated the multiple stops for food and restrooms along the way. I would recommend any of their tours!

We had an amazing time on our tour today, especially with our guide Godfrey and driver Vedram. It was honestly the perfect amount of time at each stop and we never felt rushed. He took a lot of time to explain the history to us, crack jokes, and even sing for us! As they say in Ireland, it was good craic :)

The Giant’s Causeway is absolutely beautiful!!!! My best advice is to wear really comfy clothes and shoes because it’s a hell of a walk. Well you do have the option of a bus taking you straight to it but experiencing the walk and the scenery is amazing!! I expected more from the Titanic experience but it’s interesting. The dark hedges is so beautiful and I haven’t even watched Game of Thrones. The tour guide Mark was excellent and the driver Vendra too. 100% recommend!!
