The bus was comfortable and the tour guides were great! The whole tour was amazing. Though it would have been nice to have more than an hour for food and shopping after the titanic exhibit.
Our day trip left Dublin on time, and we visited the Giant's Causeway, the Dark Hedges, the Titanic Experience in Belfast and a visit to Belfast's city-center. Our guide, Niall, was well-informed, had many helpful tips to improve our visit, and provided very entertaining conversation during the bus ride. He even arranged a photo op of the Dunluce castle, which was very dramatic against the dark clouds. We were very glad we took his advice to take the shuttle bus at the Giant's Causeway - the site is about one kilometer from the entrance. On a nice day, it could be a fun walk, but the rain clouds were threatening and we avoided slippery footing and had more time at the site itself. Our driver, Alex, did a great job maneuvering the bus through some narrow roads and got us where we needed to be on time. I would definitely recommend this trip.
I booked this tour due to the opportunity to get to Belfast, see the Titanic experience, and have the opportunity to see the Giant's Causeway. It was a good day, but everything was very rushed. Each stop only gave us so much time to barely skim the surface. Especially the city time in Belfast - we had less than 45 minutes to walk around, without knowing anything about where we were or what we were looking at. Titanic Experience was a waste of time if you've seen the movies - basically they are an excellent history guide, and the museum is way to big to squeeze into a two hour slot. We were on a tour with some people who got to go to the Game of Thrones Exhibition (we weren't given that opportunity, but would have loved a choice!) and I would imagine that tour was way better. The highlight was Giant's Causeway - but again, we were super rushed as you have to walk WAY down to the bottom (at least 10-15 min), then getting back up either takes 20-30 minutes UPHILL or you have to wait in line for a shuttle that costs 1.20 Euro per person. So your two hour slot quickly gets eaten away. The Dark Hedges was probably the biggest disappointment. There are SO many people walking up/down you can't enjoy, and they allow everyone to destroy the beautiful 250 yr old trees. So sad. Our guide was great, very nice, pleasant to listen to, and gave us some information. Would have been better giving us a great, in depth presentation about Ireland, being since we were on the bus for over 2.5 hours each way.
The trip was amazing. We saw a lot of stuff that we couldnt have seen. The sites were very beautiful and the trip was very relaxing. We saw the amazing coastline of northern ireland while travelling, the got castle, the giants causeway and other attractions around the way. The titanic museum was definitely worth visiting. The whole trip wouldnt be the dame without our lovely local tour guide. She told us many stories along the way about local myths regarding the places we visited. Finally we also had some time to see Belfast, which was a beautiful city. If in Dublin, definitely recommend this day trip.
We had a great time on this tour! Our guide was Sean, and Steven was our bus driver. Since we sat up in the front of the bus, we got to get to know them and get a lot of our touristy questions asked. They are both fun guys to talk to and we really enjoyed having Sean tell us about Ireland. On our way up to Northern Ireland, we stopped at a place that had 5 different to-go food type restaurants, this is where you're encouraged to use the restroom. We were glad we stopped here because we needed breakfast and to use the bathroom. When we finally got to go to Giant's Causeway we were dropped off and were given 2 hours until we needed to return. There's a shuttle that runs from the entrance area all the way down to the Causeway, we walked down to enjoy the sites and then took the shuttle back, it costs 1 pound cash each way per person. Remember, this is UK territory, so no Euros are accepted. The walk down was about 15-20 min. and downhill, totally worth it. The Giants Causeway was definitely the highlight of the tour, everyone needs to go here! It's just an amazing site to see and walk around. It can be difficult to walk around on the rocks, they're uneven and would be slippery if it had rained, and you also need to take big steps up or down to get around. My dad was with us and he's 68 and in good physical health so he did fine, but if you have problems getting around it might be better to stay near the walkway or don't go out as far. Otherwise this place is amazing! Try to go see it, Sean mentioned that there's talk of putting a barrier up and not letting people on the rocks, not because of erosion, but because the locals steal the rocks for their gardens! Definitely go see it! The bus ride out to the Dark Hedges was gorgeous, it's really the time where you get to see the Irish countryside. It's beautiful out there. Once we got to the Dark Hedges we were given about 20 min. and really that's all you need. Look around, take pictures, and that's it. Nothing too amazing, but glad we got to go. The Titanic Experience was just ok, we were more disappointed in the museum not having any actual artifacts from the Titanic. It's more about the building of the ship and the sinking of it. We were only given about 90 min. here, and it went by really fast. It's a big museum and really you need 2-3 hours in it so we felt rushed. Afterwards we drove back to Dublin, no stops, just a straight drive in. Whatever tour you take, just make sure you go to Giant's Causeway.
It was a long but rewarding day from 0645 hrs to 1900 hrs. The Giant's Causeway is spectacular, though the Dark Hedge is just so so unless you're a Games of Throne fans. Titanic experience is a must go. Special thanks to our guide Kevin and driver Jack who both had been most informative and helpful, as well as exercising good control (in a positive way) of the veti sizable group.
Our guide was Kevin and our Driver was Milan! Two awesome guys who took great care of us! They paced the trip perfectly so we weren’t stuck in a bus for too long! Great music along the way, humorous commentary along the way- historically knowledgeable about the area and Ireland as a whole. Great suggestions for places to eat and overall helpful. Plus you will love a lesson on traditional Irish language! 10 out of 10!
a long day but well worth it. Some people on our tour were going to the Game of Thrones exhibit instead of the titanic. My son was bale to switch which was nic. The drive was very i=informative
This tour gave a very good feel for the countryside of Ireland. Very informative guide who kept us in the loop on an sights, stops breaks and folklore and politics of the country.
Gave info on terms and stories related to buildings ruins and assorted info regarding things to do or see whilst on Dublin Belfast and the like.
Amazing site of the Giants causeway Titanic museum
Going to the place where they built the Titanic was always one of my travel goal. I wasn't disappointed. This was a long tour, but we were able to see some great sites.
