What You Can Expect

Giant’s Causeway Day Trip from Belfast

Giant's Causeway

Emerge early and depart from central Belfast in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Giant’s Causeway. Stop first at Carrickfergus Castle, an impressive Norman fortress considered one of Northern Ireland’s best preserved. Hear of the structure’s intriguing history before travelling along the scenic Antrim Coast to the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. 

On arrival, conquer your fears and walk tentatively across the rickety bridge suspended 100 feet (30 meters) above the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean (own expense). If you’d prefer to keep your adrenaline levels stable, opt for a bracing walk along the coast instead. 

Continue onto the Old Bushmills Distillery, home to one of Ireland’s favorite brands of the amber nectar. Revitalize with lunch at the distilleries bar (own expense) and purchase special whiskey-related souvenirs from the gift shop. 

Then, begin the journey to your final stop, the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway. Listen to legends surrounding the formation of the mystifying natural wonder that consists of hexagonal rock columns that fit together like a puzzle. Climb the coastal stones; listen to intriguing myths; and feel the invigorating ocean breeze as you spend some leisurely time at the natural landmark.  

Relax during the scenic journey back to Belfast, which passes the medieval Dunluce Castle, and bid your guide farewell in central Belfast.

What a lovely day trip! The Causeway was amazing and the other stops along the way were nice. My tour guide was Troy and he was a riot! He had a lot of great information about Belfast and the Causeway coast, and kept us entertained with his stories and jokes the whole day! This site is a must see if you're in Northern Ireland, and this tour was a great time and great value for money!

We loved our tour guide, Patrick! I lived in the Belfast area nearly a decade ago, but wanted to show my husband the beauties the North Coast has to offer, and even on a cold, overcast day (we went in Jan), it was one of the highlights of our trip! Would pay to do it again :)
