What You Can Expect

Giant’s Causeway Day Trip from Belfast

Giant's Causeway

Leave central Belfast in the morning and head to the first stop is Carrickfergus Castle -- a striking Norman castle that’s said to be one of the best preserved in Northern Ireland. Enjoy a photo stop here, and hear from your guide how it was built in the 12th century to guard the approach to Belfast Lough.

Head northeast along the Antrim Coast by luxury coach. To the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, an exhilarating crossing that connects the mainland to Carrick-a-Rede Island. Feeling brave? Take a walk across it (own expense) and try hard not to look down at the 100-foot (30-meter) drop! If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on dry land, your guide will point you in the right direction for a bracing walk along the magnificent headland.

Hop back on board your bus and continue to the Old Bushmills Distillery, where the famous Bushmills Irish whiskey is produced. After lunch in the distillery’s bar (own expense), browse tempting wares in the gift shop and then head off to see the incredible Giant’s Causeway!

As Northern Ireland’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, Giant’s Causeway is sure to impress! The fascinating natural wonder consists of hexagonal rock columns that somehow fit together like a baffling puzzle. Climb the ancient stones that line the coastline, and hear the myths surrounding their appearance from a professional National Trust guide. A popular tale is that the rocks were created as giant stepping stones for the fabled Irish giant Finn Mac Cool, so that he could cross the sea to Scotland.

After enjoying Giant’s Causeway, board your coach and travel south, stopping to admire the ancient ruins of Dunluce Castle, a once-important medieval stronghold. After a short walk around, return to central Belfast where your tour ends.

This was a great tour. Our driver PJ was great, we learned a ton of history and saw a bunch of cool towns and the Cliffs of Moher was incredible! I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.

Beautiful trip and a great way to see several sites on the way to the Causeway. Great option for those who are not familiar with the area and/or have limited time and want to see as much as possible in a day.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Picked up right on time and shuttled by mini bus from our hotel to the coach with great commentary on the way.
Lovely trip up the coast sit on the right hand side of the coach to be next to the sea but lots of interesting stuff on the left.
Fabulous scenery at the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge followed by lunch at the Bushmills Distillery with a free tot of their 12 year old whiskey.
Spent a good couple of hours at the Causeway then took a more direct route back to Belfast city centre with several drop off points close to the main hotels.

All in all a great day out - Sparky was an informative and entertaining guide and driver.

One tip though, the rope bridge and the Causeway are free to National Trust members if you've got your card with you.
