Belfast, United Kingdom
my mom and I have both been to Ireland several times, but had never made it to the Causeway - a place we both really wanted to see. We took this tour together, and it was a great trip! The coastal route out to the Causeway was absolutely stunning, and the little stops along the way were nice breaks (lunch at the distillery was delicious!) We felt we had plenty of time at the Causeway, I didn't feel rushed, and the time of year was great. The cold and wind were worth it since there were hardly any other tourists there! You also don't have to pay to see the Causeway - you only have to pay if you want an actual tour or audioguides, walking down and seeing the Causeway is no-charge. our tour guide was also friendly and knowledgeable and funny, making for a great time!
my mom and I took this tour together, although the weather didn't really cooperate very well, it was still a great trip! Tea at Avoca was nice, but it's such a tourist trap I wouldn't have minded stopping somewhere less touristy. The walk to the upper Glendalough lake was also definitely more than 20 minutes (the strong hail and headwind probably didn't help). This was disappointing since we didn't have much time at the end to see the monastic ruins (and we only spent about five minutes at upper Glendalough). It was unfortunate that the "highlighted" portion of the tour felt so rushed. In general, we definitely found that the Irish seem to underestimate the amount of time it takes to walk somewhere - and my mom and I are fast walkers! our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and entertaining, making for a great time!
