Details about this tour

Join us for our day trip to the Giants Causeway. Arrive at our shop on Great Victoria Street in the morning to check in for your trip and be sure to grab your complimentary bottle of water from the shop for the journey. Once you have boarded the bus and begin to leave Belfast, you will be travelling inland straight to the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge where you will have the chance to cross the bridge over the 100-foot drop to the rocks below (weather permitting, entrance fee not included). Once you have arrived back to the bus safe and sound after this terrifying ordeal, you will be on your way to the fascinating ruins of Dunluce Castle where you will learn about the history of this wonderful monument!

From here we take you to the Bushmills Distillery where you have the chance to grab a bite to eat and sample some of the different types of the famous Irish whiskey (not included in price) including the famous Black Bush. Once you have had something to eat and plenty to drink, you will board the bus feeling refreshed and then we are off to the main event The Giants Causeway! This truly stunning monument has been named as one of the great natural wonders of the world and we take you right to its doorstep and with the exact same formations appearing directly across the North Sea in Scotland, from this geological constancy comes a legend of ancient rivalries and Irish cunning between Finn MacCool and Benandonner of which you will learn more from your guide

Once you have finished following in the footsteps of these great giants along the Causeway, you will board the bus back to Belfast travelling along this picturesque coast road with its magnificent scenery right along the coast. We will stop around halfway along the coast for a break at one of the fishing villages, Carnlough which will allow you to get some great pictures at the harbour. After this quick stop, we continue along the coast road to Carrickfergus Castle. One of the best preserved Norman castles in Ireland where your guide will tell of its fascinating history before making your way back to Belfast.

    Knowledgeable guide with a good sense of humour. The high winds shut down the rope bridge, but that did not interfere with the experience of the tour. Lots of walking and worth every second. Lunch stop at distillery and it's busy. Tour was well paced.

    Fantastic day out - so many things done in the day - great value for money. Coach driver/ tour guide Stuart was very informative and funny - really made the driving bits go by with a smile.

    Great day travelled from Belfast city centre to Giants Causeway then the rope bridge. Driver Stephen was great gave loads of info on history and was good fun.
    Even though the weather was very wet it did not spoil the day.

    Really enjoyed this trip. The bus was very comfortable. The tour guide was great. The scenery was terrific even though it poured rain on us while walking down and back from the Giant's Causeway. Enjoyed Carrick-a-Rede and all the other sites. It was a jam packed day and for anyone staying in Belfast longer, they could go to one site for a more in depth visit. Stopped in Bushmills for whiskey tasting and lunch. Recommend bringing your own lunch because there is no time to find a restaurant/pub, order lunch and eat, let alone try to taste whiskey or peruse the gift shop.

    A ten hour - tiring but worth it. Two stops that I would not include if I was organising it would be carrick-a-rede rope bridge and carrickfergus Castle. It takes 20 minutes to walk to the bridge and then 30 seconds to get across after you have queued. I'd have preferred more time at Bushmills. Only an hour there just enough time to get a bowl of soup and browse the shop. No time to do a tour there.

    The 10-minute stop at carrickfergus Castle did not allow us to visit it

    The driver was good good but some things annoyed me and info not quite accurate. Also far too much information about game of thrones. I have never seen game and this was not a game of thrones tour. Also northern Ireland needs to get over Finn McCoole, that fairytale is a bit jaded now.
    Overall, I would recommend

    Our tour guide, David, is the funniest tour guide in my opinion. He told us a lot of Irish's joke and stories. I will definitely recommend this trip.

    We had a fantastic day touring Giants Causeway, the rope bridge, Bushmills distillery and the Causeway Costal Route. Steven was an amazing driver sharing stories of the area and Northern Ireland’s history. We traveled with extended family, all 4 adults and 3 kids (ages 16, 13 and 9) had an amazing day. This was a true highlight of our UK adventure!!

    The itinerary, commentary and transportation were worth way more than we paid. Large coach but comfortable. We saw so much of Northern Ireland in a day. It was great and Stephen was so courteous and caring. Funny too. The Giants Causeway is fantastic and the views at the rope bridge took our breath away. Although lunch at the distillery is not a great experience, the food was pretty good and not over-priced; kind of a cafeteria really. Whiskey tasting (3 for £10) was well worth it even though we didn’t think the whiskey was great. Loved the Antrim coast drive and even stopped for ice cream! Highly recommend!
