What people are saying about Carrickfergus
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed this Giants Causeway and GOT tour. It was a good combination, as I feel if you didn't combine the two (going to the NI sites of the causeway and the carrick-a-rede rope bridge and seeing GOT filming locations) you wouldn't necessarily have gotten your monies worth. Seeing the GOT locations is a real treat for those who are massive fans and even if you aren't the locations are pretty neat to look at too (who doesn't like a seaside cave). One of my favorite aspects of this tour was the commentary from our guide and the Irish folk stories that came up along our journey. My friend and I grabbed food and a treat to-go at the cafe located at the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. I'm glad we did because I feel this was the location we had the most time to grab food during the tour. Overall, we had a great time in a beautiful part of the world and got the chance to nerd out over GOT.
We had enough time to visit each place. The guide was good, told us detailed stories about the places and the episodes of GOT related to the places. However, he was not very enthusiastic while speaking. We could have expected more dynamism on a trip about such an intense serie ! Only the costumes and the accessories help us being in the GOT mood. Negative point : the guide told us that we would do our lunch break at the Giants Causeway. But we arrived there at 3.00pm and once there the guide told us that we would have 1h15min to do both the walk on the Giants Causeway and our lunch break. Really too short. We had to eat while we were walking.
My partner and I had a lovely day out on the GoT location tour and Giants Causeway with Maira and Brendy. The tour was fantastic, full of beautiful locations and Maira gave us all the information we needed (GoT related and more). The props at certain locations really added too the photos of the locations as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and can say it was the highlight of our trip to Northern Ireland. Thank you again to Maira and Brendy for being so lovely and accommodating
The coach trip enabled us to see the beauty of Northern Island coastline in a time limited fashion. The trip had to many activities packed into it and therefore time seemed rushed. Phil our driver and tour guide was courteous friendly and obliging and enjoyed the banter with his captive audience ! It made the trip all the more entertaining
My daughter (13) and myself thoroughly enjoyed the tour, plenty of time to see both main natural wonders and walk around at our own pace. Our driver Troy was great, very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. Great craic. Would recommend the tour highly to friends and family.
