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 tour was amazing!

  • A very interesting tour especially in Belfast learning about the troubles that have so divided the people over the years. This tour also includes stops at the Giants Causeway and the Rope Bridge. The causeway is relatively an easy stroll to see and there is a shuttle to take you back and forth if anyone in your party finds the walk too much. The Rope Bridge is a bit more challenging especially the climb down to the bridge from steep metal stairs. Our party did not find the bridge itself too scary however. This is a very long day trip and can be tiring.

  • Great tour! Learned so much about Belfast.
    The rope bridge was very fun,but the hike getting there and back is quite strenuous.
    Giants Causeway is amazing.
    It was a long day but well worth it. Our guide Noel did a great job keeping us all in line.

  • This is a great tour. The black taxi tour is less than we expected.

  • The Black taxi tour of Belfast was something unique. The history of the troubles as told by someone who lived through it. The murals were moving and beautiful. I lucked out and the weather was gorgeous on the day of the tour, so the views from Giants Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge were stunning. We even got to see a couple of Game of Thrones filming locations, including Dunluce castle as the sun was setting. It was a long day, but well worth it! Nicholas and Sean were great! Nicholas even played some music for us on the ride home and we sang along to some Irish songs.

  • This was one of the best tours I've taken. JP and our driver Paddy were the best. JP's historical knowledge and sense of humor allowed him to concentrate 800 years of Irish history into a days drive. The funny thing is that a small portion of the day's adventure had the most powerful effect on me. In addition to visiting the Giant's Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede bridge, we also had the opportunity to take the Black Cab ride through Belfast. Our driver Colm, provided another condensed version of the troubles in Belfast from a first person perspective, giving us trip we will never forget. His insight and the compassion enabled us a small peek into a world I hope is never allowed to be resurfaced.

  • Ashlein and Jack were amazing tour guides. Trip it's self was great and showed some of the true splendor of the Irish countryside.

  • Overall, we really enjoyed the tour. I would definitely recommend anyone to take the tour. I cant remember our guides name, but he played the ukelele and penny whistle on the trip, which was fun. The Giants Causeway was very impressive, but the rain limited our time at the site. The black cab tour was also fascinating, but sobering. The only reason I didnt give 5 stars was because I thought the rope bridge was a little over-hyped. The views were beautiful, but there was the impression the bridge was the long walk over the open sea. While technically true, the bridge was about 20 steps across and very well constructed, so I was a little underwhelmed by the experience of crossing the bridge.

  • The Giant's Causeway is an amazing site to see. Northern Ireland is beautiful. The guide and driver were lovely.

  • Excellent tour and a great tour guide! Really informative and great to speak to about the area and Ireland generally! My only wish would be an hour or so to wander around Belfast to explore but the political tour was brilliant and the Giant's Causeway and rope bridge were amazing! Definitely worth doing!!!
