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.

Fantastic! Ray the driver/tour guide was excellent. Looked after his bus load of tourists very very well.
The content of the trip was good,scenery gorgeous and the weather was superb. I would recommend this trip to all. My only criticism is that when booking, Viatour should emphasise that there is a fair walk to the rope bridge as some older people who are not very mobile would have struggled in the time allowed to do the walk. The causeway was better as people could opt for the bus. We were obviously able to walk along the cliff top and back which was lovely. Lots of praise for Ray, he was very informative, caring and entertaining too..
