Day 1: Dublin - Belfast city (overnight Belfast)

Our first stop this morning is at Monasterboice, a monastic settlement dating back to 501 AD. This ancient monastery is home to the best preserved and most intricately carved Celtic crosses in Ireland. A fully intact stone round tower also keeps watch over the horizon for marauding Vikings.By late morning well arrive in Belfast. Discover why Lonely Planet regards Northern Irelands capital as one of the top 10 'must- visit' cities on Earth. Your driver will show you highlights including City Hall, Queen's University, Albert's Clock, Botanic Gardens and much more.With plenty of time at leisure to explore the city, we strongly recommend the political Black Taxi tour (optional) to view the Peace Wall and infamous political murals. The drivers are locals and can explain what life was like in Belfast during the conflict of 1969 - 1998.

Day 2: Belfast - Giants Causeway - Letterkenny

A glorious touring day cruising the Beautiful North Coast. We initially visit the Dark Hedges, famed by the Game of Thrones. Then it's the jackpot visit of the day - we will trace the footprints of Celtic Giants, walk the Giant's Causeway! Ulster's #1 attraction since 2 million BC! A UNESCO world heritage site and the proud location of an estimated 60,000 hexagonal columns of basalt rock formed by cataclysmic violent volcanic eruptions a long long time ago! Your guide will wax lyrical about how our giant warrior hero - Fionn McCool - built it to fight off our cousins the pesky Scots. Well continue to the nearby city of Derry / Londonderry where well spend the afternoon. There will be plenty of time at leisure after an excellent in-depth walking tour of Derry's walls with a local guide. Learn why the city is officially known as Londonderry and the story of the long bloody siege here in 1689. Your guide will take you down to the well known Bogside district, scene of the Bloody Sunday massacre in 1972 and inspiration for U2's classic anthem 'Sunday, Bloody Sunday'. Just across the border lie the hills of Donegal. Well overnight in the neat town of Letterkenny for a flavour of rural Ireland.

  • First 2 days and driver/guide (Freddy) were very good. Accommodations were fine. 3rd day was not so good. We spent virtually all day on the coach and had less than 3 hours in Galway.

  • Our tour guide could not have been more wonderful! Took us to many sites that were not even listed on the program and made special efforts to accommodate me traveling with small children. I wouldn't expect such care on a budget tour but I was pleasantly surprised.

  • Freddie the guide was wonderful, but he had to drive and be our guide! We had 55 people, so it was crowded and pretty random seating. I think this tour should be recommended for people aged 18-30 because the focus was on hostels and B and Bs, and meeting for pub meals. Would not suggest it for older adults as there were lots of disadvantages.

  • This tour was amazing. Our driver/guide Freddie from Paddywagon tours was awesome and made the journey enjoyable. The Belfast and Derry days were eye-opening and educational. Both are beautiful cities despite their troubled pasts. The Black Taxi tour in Belfast is a must. The Black Taxi tour driver was very knowledgeable and so kind in answering all of our questions in full. A very special thank you to Rory our walking tour guide in Derry who explained some very difficult and complicated history to us in such a fair and honest manner. The accommodations in both cities were decent and there was ample of time to explore and we found good places to eat. The visits to the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge and the Giants Causeway were breathtaking. Also Galway city was just lovely. In hindsight, I wish I had booked a 6 day tour instead of a 3 day tour!!!

  • One of my highlights for Ireland. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, our guide Leigh was just awesome and very informative. He kept us all amused with his wit and local knowledge. He really made the experience just that much more fun. Loved this tour and would highly recommend this to anyone. One of the best tours I had in my travels.
