Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in central Dublin in the early morning to start your trek to Belfast where you will spend approximately 45 minutes. Belfast has a very compact city center and is known internationally for its Northern Ireland conflict—the feud between Protestants and Catholics.

The next stop, the Dark Hedges, will be a 10-to-15-minute stop. The Dark Hedges were made famous as a filming location of the hit fantasy series Game of Thrones. Additionally, make a quick 5-minute photo stop at Dunluce Castle.

Afterward, arrive at the Giant's Causeway, where you can spend at least 1.5 hours. This must-see World Heritage Site has a magnificent seascape. Here you can have a sit-down lunch if you'd like (own expense).

The brave-at-heart have the opportunity to cross the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge if it is open. Carrick-a-Rede is an abandoned fishing island located just a few miles from the Giant’s Causeway. This 65-foot-long (20-meter-long) bridge is built from rope, and the views from it are arguably some of the best in Ireland. This stops lasts about 1.5 hours.

Continue on the coastal route, and go through beautiful coastal towns like Ballycastle and Cushendun where you can enjoy views of Sheep Island, Rathlin Island, and Scotland.

Lastly, stop for 20 minutes in Cushendun before returning to Dublin. Return to Dublin at approximately 8:30p.m.

  • Was a good trip with beautiful scenery but it needs to say if you are older or have a walking stick like me it is not really suitable. The time allotted to see the attractions was not enough and the huge hills to get there were a rush even for the younger ones so I spent my money to sit by the bus on a seat and wait for everyone to get back. Needs a little more information.

  • Our tour guides Tara and Brian did a great job showing us around Northern Ireland. We got to see a lot of sights and I highly recommend it!

  • Great Tour. We managed to visit a lot of places. Iriel is an excellent guide!

  • This was an amazing tour! Derrick and Mark were great! This was a great way to see Northern Ireland. We made many different stops and Derrick gave us some history and background at each location we went to. He even sang for us! This was my favorite thing I did in Ireland. It was a long day but definitely worth it!

  • This trip was amazing Derrick and Mark did and excellent job making the trip informative with great history on the area entertaining derricks jokes and singing were on point and very entertaining and relaxing. Every stop was perfectly planned out and the recommendations at each stop were perfect.

  • This was a great trip, starting at about 6:30 AM and coming back to Dublin city center after 8:00 PM. It was a really full day trip and dropped by lots of places I wanted to go including Giant's Causeway and dark hedges. I had three other tours during my one week long Ireland trip, and this was by far the best. Huge thanks to Tara, out tour guide and Mark behind the wheel. Her explanation and humor made fun trip even more enjoyable. Highly recommended.

  • With the tour I manage to visit so many spots that I can't reach without a car!

  • We have to rate this tour as the worst we took in Ireland and Scotland. The bus is older and cramped and not very comfortable for a 14 hr. day. The Dark Hedges is a joke with people and cars from end to end, the Giants Causeway was pouring rain with gale winds and no place to get out of the weather and the Carrick bridge was closed due to high winds. This tour combines two tours, this one and a GOT tour so while we were being hammered by the storm our bus was off on another excursion. Belfast was a mini stop to take a restroom break. The description of the tour isn't very accurate and the tour isn't disability friendly. That said Eugene our guide and Peter our driver are excellent. Eugene is very knowledgeable on the history and politics of Ireland. The scenery was amazing and stunning enough to make trip worthwhile. We would recommend this tour with some reservation, this is a young company that needs maturing.

  • This was an excellent day trp from Dublin, Eugene and Peter were the very best guides, incorporating great humor and fun, while giving us a great review of Irelands history, castles etc.. we saw so much in one day! You do not want to miss this one!!! Outstanding!

  • My husband and I did multiple day trips while staying in Dublin and this was by far our favorite! Irial was the BEST guide we could have asked for. Very knowledgeable and funny! He answered all of our questions and made every moment of the trip fun. Unfortunately the rope bridge was closed due to high wind which was very upsetting long time wish list but nobody's fault there. We also had horrible rain that shortened my look at the Causeway but even with all of that it was still my favorite tour. Keep up the good work Irial!
