Great day even though it was long. Our guide was very experienced and made provided excellent commentaries about the history and geography of the area. He was careful to keep us on time and was very accommodating to any special needs. A most worthwhile tour
For the brave n looking for something more than a sedentary placid tour, this tour involves walking across the rope bridge that you won't forget. Also Extreme Ireland driver n guide is excellent! Do all Irish guides sing? I'll never know but it sure gave a different flavor from the usual type of sightseeing tour. Enjoyable.
This was such a great tour! Mike Murphy was our tour guide and so much fun!! Its a great way to get out of Dublin and see the Northern Countryside. I was worried about all the driving, but Mike made the time go by fast with songs and stories about Irish history.(and lots of breaks!) This was one of our favorites days in Ireland. Would highly recommend!
Absolutely amazing, it was really long day, but Giant's Causeway under the blue sky was fantastic, our driver was really good and knowledgable, big thanks for this trip :).
Long day but well worth seeing the sites. Our driver/guide, Barry was terrific.
Giant's Causeway was a last second trip while I was in Ireland, but I was glad I went. Our tour guide was brilliant, funny, and a great guide all around. The weather was great and I thought it was well worth the price. I would do this trip again if I came back with friends or family for sure.
We would recommend this tour to everyone. The scenery was amazing! The bridge was a little iffy as the winds were howling from seemingly every direction, but the view was amazing. Mike took us through some areas of Belfast, showing us the graffiti and was very knowledgeable about the history of all the areas. He even sang us a few tunes during the trip. Highly recommended!!
Giant's Causeway and The Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge were awesome. Make sure you are in shape though. The walk down to the bridge is hilly, but worth every penny you pay for this trip. The views are stunning. We had great weather the day we went. Giant's Causeway offered breathtaking views. I recommend walking down to the bottom and then taking the bus ride back up for 1.20 euro. I walked. I survived. Again it is very steep, but the views are worth the trip. Our driver was very good, and well versed in Irish history. We stopped at a little restaurant for lunch called Chilly McCool's that had a menu of items all for about 8.95 euro. I ate lunch for 10 euro. On the way back, we stopped in Belfast for about an hour. Wish I had more time there, but I could have chosen a different tour. My son highly recommended Giant's Causeway and I took him at his word. I'm glad I did.
Well organised, Driver very informed about all areas visited and very disciplined.
Rained all morning, wind blustering, by the time we got up to the causeway the bridge had been closed. Our driver Wayne improvised, and since we had extra time, we stopped at the Old Bushmill's Whiskey Distillery, for a few minutes in the gift shop. Of course, as we were heading towards Belfast, the skies cleared and the sun shone. Once in Belfast, he arranged an impromptu meeting, for those of us who wished to pay 10 pounds apiece, with a taxi driver who was a Belfast native, and who gave us his insights into the conflicts and history of Belfast, a VERY enjoyable and learning experience. Much of our time the driver Wayne was giving us histories about Ireland, and I hope the other people from various countries were able to understand and not miss out on his expertise. Overall, would do it again and hope the weather would be more agreeable, but this is Ireland, and winter, so it is what it is. Wayne's improvising made up somewhat for not being able to do the bridge, but it is totally understandable that in high winds safety is first and foremost, and it simply wasn't safe.
A beautiful drive through Northern Ireland. I think the rope bridge is a bit overrated but the views all along the northern coast are fantastic. I would have liked more time in Belfast but you do have enough time to hire a cab for an hour and see western Belfast where so much of the "struggle" took place in the 70s and 80s when Belfast was a battleground. While it is safe now the pain is still raw and you can feel what it must have been like.
This tour was a blast! Liam was excellent as a tour guide! Can't say enough about the Irish Coast and the rugged beauty...Belfast was much prettier and nicer than I had imagined...and of course, the Giant's Causeway was marvelous!
