Know More about this tour

In the early morning, your guide will pick you up from selected centrally located pickup points and then drive you north out of the city by luxury coach. After a journey of roughly two hours, arrive in Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, in time for your black cab tour.
On a route around the city, listen to your guide talk through the highs and lows of Belfasts fascinating political history. Hear of its industrial roots, the past four decades of civil unrest, and of its current regeneration; many say the citys heyday is still to come.
Look out for several of the top Belfast attractions, like the Harland and Wolff shipyard, where the Titanic was built, and Belfast Docks, where numerous ships were made in the city's industrial days. See political murals as you pass through the Falls and Shankill neighborhoods where Belfasts Unionist and Nationalist cultures live on opposing sides of the divide. Pull over for a closer look at several key locations, including the Peace Wall, where you can sign your name next to legendary peacemakers, such as Nelson Mandela and Bill Clinton.
After a break to take refreshments in the city (own expense), leave Belfast behind and hit the road to the Northern Irish coast. Following a route known as the Antrim Coastal Drive, pass spectacular scenery including stony shores, densely wooded glens and picture-perfect harbors. Pause to marvel at Dunluce Castle, a medieval ruin perched precariously atop a bluff on the coast. Fans of hit TV show Game of Thrones may recognize it as the setting for the House of Greyjoy.
After driving for roughly two hours, arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Giants Causeway, where youll have two hours to explore at leisure. Created more than 60 million years ago after a series of volcanic eruptions, the causeway is best known for its distinctive rock formations that span nearly 18 miles (29 km) of coastline.
Continue on to Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, which links the mainland to Carrick-a-Rede Island. Steel yourself for a heart-stopping walk across the swaying bridge, as the Atlantic Ocean waves pound into the cliffs below. The surrounding headlands were also used for filming several Game of Thrones scenes.
On the journey back to Dublin take a brief stop in the pretty town of Castlebelingham to stretch your legs, before arriving back to central Dublin in the evening.

  • This was THE MOST AMAZING DAY ever. I absolutely fell in love with Ireland and you will too.

  • This tour is obviously an all day event, and the majority of it is on the bus. However, it was worth it! We did the cab ride in Belfast and for spoiled Americans (like myself), it was a real eye opener. The scenery is beautiful, the bridge was a blast and the causeway incredible. Worth every minute.

  • By far the best tour out of 9 that we took. During the visit to Belfast, do the Black Cab tour, it is well worth it. That was the most comprehensive personal tour we took. Everyone knows what happened to the Titanic 100 years ago what is happening in Belfast is much more compelling.

  • Great tour!

  • Peter, our guide, and Bill, our driver, were fantastic, turning a dismal day of rain and wind into one of the best tours we have ever taken. Our taxi driver, Patrick, provided his Catholic perspective on the political situation, which was interesting and informative. We were lucky to make it across the rope bridge at Carrick-a-Rede some on our tour were turned away due to unsafe conditions caused by 30 mph winds. Giants Causeway was unique -- Peter let us draw our own conclusion about whether we believed the geological or folklorical version of how the formation was established. Peter played great Irish music that embellished the tour experience, and showed a video that provided context to the Irish troubles in the early 1970s. There is a great deal of walking over uneven terrain at the rope bridge and Giants Causeway, as well as frequent getting in and out of a black cab as well as on and off a bus. It's a long day, but worth every moment.

  • My wife and I enjoyed this tour, particularly Giant's Causeway, which was awe inspiring. We were surprised at how much our 16 year old son enjoyed the Titantic Museum we loved it too!.

  • everything was fantastic. would love to go again.

  • Best tour I have ever taken--so worth the money and fits in so much into just one day. If you only take one tour in Ireland, do this one!

  • This was an amazing tour. When we arrived in Belfast my friends and I chose the political tour. This was such an eye opener. Brought tears to my eyes to find out that trouble is still happening in this part of the world. Even though it was raining our trip to Giant's Causeway was still worthwhile. The tour guide certainly knew the area and gave us lots of information.

  • Amazing that is all I need to say
