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 Belfast’s fascinating political history. Hear of its industrial roots, the past four decades of civil unrest, and of its current regeneration; many say the city’s 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 Belfast’s 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 Giant’s Causeway, where you’ll 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.

  • The day was everything that it promised to be. They fulfilled all the descriptions that the tour was sold with.

  • This honestly was such a surprisingly amazing trip - and my friends and I were all fighting colds and felt pretty bad and still had a great time!

    The coach bus was comfortable and pick up was convenient. Our guide was friendly and informative, though something about couch buses knock me out so I slept for a lot of it.

    First stop of the day was the Belfast tour, which honestly wasn't something I was excited about but ended up being the highlight of the whole trip. You get in a black cab and are driven around by a local and they really shoot it to you straight. It was fascinating and a little scary. You get to go on both sides of the wall and see the monuments. So cool and so fun.

    Then we went to the Giant's Causeway which was definitely cool! I had no idea what to expect and it really is surreal.

    Then we went to the Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge which was the most underwhelming - you just stand in line to cross a bridge - but allowed for cool photos.

    It's a long day but totally worth it!

  • Definitely a must! This was a long day trip, but so worthwhile. The taxi tour of Belfast was informative and enlightening.
    The Giant's Causeway is stunningly beautiful, and the rope bridge was fun. Got a lot of exercise too!
    Handsome and fun tour guide and excellent bus driver make the trip more enjoyable.

  • Really, really great trip. Was easy to find the pick-up location of which there were a few depending on where you were staying, the tour guide had a great personality, was informative, definitely not dull, but didn't overdo it either. The bus trip up had a stop for snacks and the bathroom - we did the taxi tour of Belfast, which was ridiculously interesting and one of the best parts. It was easy, well set-up, and our taxi guide was perfect. After Belfast, the ride up to Giant's Causeway was gorgeous. The bus was comfortable, Giant's Causeway was fascinating and worth seeing, and the rope bridge gave incredible views and great variety to the trip. I couldn't imagine this going any better for the price and it is one our best memories from our Ireland trip.

  • Enjoyed the tour for Belfast. Too bad we did not have time to do the Titanic Museum but instead we chose the Black Taxi tour of Belfast. A wonderful way to learn the history of this area. Enjoyed the Giant's Causeway, and the bridge tour. Long day!

  • Interesting day out with a bit of travel involved.

  • Absolutely awesome. Cannot praise enough how wonderful this trip was. Only down side was cost to go into restaurant and the wait at the hotel at the Giants Causeway. Really only a small shop to buy a sandwich and a drink. I suggest take a picnic or pre book a table at the hotel if you would like something more than a sandwich. The Giants causeway is a magical place. A must do when visiting this beautiful Island. I have done this trip twice now and would definitely do it again.

  • AWESOME tour guides...learned so much about Northern Ireland's history from Belfast to the countryside!

  • Giant's Causeway was amazing and the tour guides were good. The only minor negative was the Belfast Black Cab tour. I found it offered a one-sided look at a conflict during which both sides committed unjust acts on innocent people.

  • This is very impressive to see. Northern Ireland is special. We also took the black cab to see Belfast, our taxi driver was very
    informative.
