Full description
On this full-day excursion to the Giant’s Causeway you’ll leave Belfast at 09:45 with your Irish guide and fellow travel partners for a drive through the rolling farmland of County Antrim to the northern coast of Ireland – an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Take an exhilarating walk across the rope bridge to Carrick-a-Rede Island for a real cliff-top experience. This 30-meter deep and 20-meter wide chasm is traversed by a rope bridge erected by salmon fishermen.

Visitors bold enough to cross to the rocky island are rewarded with fantastic views of Rathlin and the Scottish islands. Consider crossing at your own risk for a small optional charitable donation to the National Trust, the registered UK charity that maintains the bridge.

The Giant's Causeway has often been described as the 8th wonder of the world, and once you have visited the site you’ll quickly see why. The area consists of around 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns formed during a volcano eruption 60 million years ago. This is one of the world’s great natural attractions although many Irish passionately believe the causeway was built buy the Celtic warrior hero Finn McCool!

A new and ultra-modern visitor center is now open and provides visitors with unique audio guides and earphones that relate the story of the rock formations in many different languages. You’re guaranteed 2 hours at the Giant's Causeway on this tour before returning to Belfast.

great excursion. the carrick a reason was unfortunately closed due to a landslide (according to what locals the rope bridge is closed more often than open so ask for this) this made up for the driver by driving past other sights. make sure you strictly adhere to the bus driver's times. he will leave your ass behind ...

Great trip with a competent and friendly bus driver = guide. He told and showed everything important: the Dark Hedges (GoT site), the rope bridge at Carrick-a-Rede and Renly Baratheon's Camp near Storms End (also GoT), Giant's Causeway and a wildly romantic castle ruin. We didn't even have an hour in Belfast. Tickets for the rope bridge and the Giants Causeway Visitor Center were included in the price. Great tour, I can only recommend it!

A very very funny bus driver, half humorist comedian who made us forget the time on the road. But the downside is that nothing was translated! Everything is timed but it does! the sites visited under a beautiful sun were magical, many people on the causeway of the giants, beautiful day.
