Full description
The tour begins with a scenic drive through the Glens of Antrim to the North Coast of Ireland. It is truly breathtaking with rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, and wonderful views of Scotland.

Ample time is given at the incredible Giant's Causeway, a famous World Heritage Site. It is a 20-minute walk from the drop-off point to the Causeway site or a shuttle bus operates for a small charge. The hexagonal basalt rocks really look like they were manmade, and this leads the people in Ireland to believe they were carved by Ireland's most famous Giant Warrior, the great Finn MacCoole.

Stop for one of the most impressive photo opportunities in Ireland, the magnificent Dunluce Castle. Part of this impressive ruin crumbled into the sea in the 1600s. This castle is connected to the mainland by a bridge and was once the stronghold of the McDonnell clan.

In the afternoon you return to Belfast City for a sightseeing tour that takes in the highlights of this vibrant city, including City Hall, the River Lagan, Queens University, St Anne's cathedral, and Prince Albert memorial Clock.
