What to expect

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Europa Hotel, Great Victoria St, Belfast BT2 7AP, UK

We depart from Belfast City Center, from the bus shelter in front of the famous Europa Hotel, on Great Victoria street at 9.45 am. Begin the journey in the company of your 100% Irish guide and your fellow travel partners for today, we'll get to know each other and have our charming guide set the scene as we take the drive through the rolling farmland of county Antrim to the North Coast of Ireland - an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Stop At: The Dark Hedges, Bregagh Road, Ballymoney BT53 8PX Northern Ireland

We visit the most popular natural phenomena in Northern Ireland, the Dark Hedges. The trees were planted in the 18th century by the Stuart family to impress their guests upon arrival to their house. Most of you will recognize the Dark Hedges as King's Road from the hit TV series Game of Thrones. It is a wonderful photo-stop and an opportunity to be a part of a real life set!

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Causeway Coastal Route, Glenstaughey Road, Ballintoy BT64 6NE Northern Ireland

We make our way to the Causeway Coast where we can see fine views of Rathlin Island, and on a clear day we may even see the Scottish coast 13 miles away. The views along this coastline are spectacular, no wonder it is one of the most visited destinations in Europe!

Stop At: Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, 119A Whitepark Road, Ballintoy BT54 6LS Northern Ireland

The Rope bridge at Carrick-A-Rede (photo stop) is situated near the charming village of Ballintoy. Unfortunately, the local government who administer the rope bridge have decided not to accept groups from May 2022 due to capacity issues. Accordingly, we'll stop for some amazing photos and and enjoy extra time at Dunluce Castle.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Giant's Causeway, Causeway Road, Bushmills BT57 8SU Northern Ireland

The Giant's Causeway is the highlight of this trip for most! Built by the Irish giant Fionn and his Scottish rival Angus, it is a real masterpiece formed of perfectly shaped hexagonal columns. Your tour guide shall tell you more about the Causeway, and the legends of the area.

The entrance fee for the visitor centre is not included as the UNESCO World Heritage Site is actually completely free of charge to the public. Based on years of guest feedback our guests prefer to have the best possible value price for the overall tour and then can make individual decisions locally as to whether they wish to access the adjacent visitor centre for a fee at the door.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Pass By: Dunluce Castle, 87 Dunluce Road Co. Antrim, Portrush BT57 8UY Northern Ireland

We arrive at one of the most dramatic castle ruins in the world for a 1 hour stop, prepare to be amazed at the way this old castle hangs over the edge of the cliffs. Part of the Dunluce Castle fell into the sea in the 1600's, and some servants died in the tragedy. Since that time, it is believed to be haunted by the unfortunate servants. Take some impressive photos before we leave the coast and make our way to Belfast.

Pass By: Europa Hotel, Great Victoria St, Belfast BT2 7AP, UK

Arrive back in Belfast safe and well around 05:00pm in downtown Belfast, your thirst for knowledge quenched and of course you can now say to all your friends that the top attractions in Northern Ireland are now crossed off your list!

This was a great time, mostly due to the fact that our tour guide was hilarious and super fun. At no point did this get boring, even during the long drive to and from. My only complaint is that the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge was closed so we couldn't visit. Apparently, it's been closed for a long...

(£13.50/person)The rope bridge is closed for maintenance and will not open until 2023. These are the facts. You are miss-selling t...

DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TRIP!!!! The advertisement clearly states that it includes Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. It does not!! The bus drops you a fair distance from there and you only look at the bridge from afar. Despite the pictures showing people walking across the bridge and description clearly ...
