Overview

Leave Dublin and travel by luxury coach to Belfast for a black cab tour, followed by a trip to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Giants Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. From the comfort of your black cab, tour Northern Ireland's capital, seeing all the landmark sites, including the Belfast Docks and the Falls and Shankill neighborhoods. After learning about Belfasts political history, travel along the Antrim Coastal Drive, stopping to explore the famous rock formations of the Giants Causeway and to take the perilous walk across the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.

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.

    My tour guide was Murphy and driver Palo. They were amazing. Murphy checked at each stop how I liked it. I took the Black Cab Tour in Belfast. That was the highlight of this trip. The driver was talking about first hand experience he had.

    Guide David was nice, informative, entertaining and a problem-solver. We endured Cyclone Dennis which made it unsafe to do walk the rope bridge. David came up with a substitute which was a visit to the Dark Hedges, which everyone in the bus agreed. Highlights were the Black Taxi tour of Belfast and the Giant's Causeway. We never felt rushed or bored and are quite satisfied with the tour.

    Ive been using Viator for tours all over the world (Europe, Asia, N and s america, and australia) and ive got to honestly say this is hands down my favorite. Seamus the guide was awesome. Not only knowledgeable but had a great attitude. Paolo the driver was great, making suggestions to make up for the inability to visit the bridge due to winds. Because we couldnt go into the bridge, Paolo and Seamus took us to 2 other spots that werent on the tour to make up. The dark hedges and a view point off the north coast. Tour was informative and even learned a few irish words.

    This excursion was well worth taking. Our guide, Dave, and our driver, Sydney, both added a lot to the experience. Both were friendly, helpful and eager to answer any questions we had. Dave had many interesting facts and stories that he shared with us during the day. Seeing the countryside was amazing, the beauty and pristine, neat as a pin look of everything.. fields, towns and cities made a huge impression. The Titanic Museum was a powerful experience. The Causeway was more spectacular that we had anticipated. I would advise anyone to take this trip.

    Incredible day of history and natural beauty. Tara and Sydney were amazing hosts. The black cab tour was a highlight and provided a unique view into a history we often only hear one side of.

    David and Paolo were great! They both helped to make our day trip to Northern Ireland better than we could’ve imagined! The sights were some you don’t want to miss.

    This was a good trip. It is a long day for sure but you do have enough time at each of the sites. Bus was comfortable and the driver and guide were helpful and informative. Enjoyed the Belfast black cab trip. Probably only negative was that I would have liked to see more of Belfast not just the parts related to the Troubles.
