What You Can Expect

Northern Ireland Day Trip from Dublin: Belfast Black Taxi Tour and Giant's Causeway

Explore Belfast's political past

Your full-day tour of Northern Ireland’s major sights starts with early-morning hotel pickup in central Dublin. (Be sure to grab your coffee and breakfast for the ride, because it will two hours before you arrive in Belfast.)

An iconic black cab awaits you in Northern Ireland’s beautiful and infamous capital. This tour gives you a safe and introspective account of this impassioned city, most well known for its history of political and religious unrest. Explore Belfast’s Falls and Skankill neighborhoods, where hundreds of ornate murals impart Unionist and Nationalist political messaging in glorious color. Learn of the city’s industrial roots, its divisive conflict and its current youthful revival.

During the tour, you’ll see several of Belfast’s top attractions, including sites such as the Belfast Docks and the Harland and Wolff shipyard — snapshots of the city’s industrial beginnings. If the sentiment takes you, feel free to request a stop at other notable sites like the Peace Wall, where you can add your name to those of other peacemakers who have touched this monumental city.

The next leg of your journey is the grand Antrim Coastal Drive, taking you along Ireland’s wild, rocky north coast for dramatic sea views and the fairy-tale glens of Antrim. Speaking of drama, catch a view of Dunluce Castle, a medieval construction that’s enjoying a second life is as the House of Greyjoy in the award-winning TV series Game of Thrones.

The 2-hour drive brings you to the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Giant’s Causeway. Stretch your legs and enjoy a meander through this geological wonder that has been the source of many Irish myths. Then punctuate your tour of the north with an invigorating walk across the teetering, 80-foot-high (24-meter) Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (not for the faint-hearted!). After you’ve had your adrenaline boost for the day (or year), get cozy in your coach seat for the ride back to Dublin for hotel drop-off.

The best part of our week-long trip to Ireland. Well worth the time and money! We opted for the Belfast black taxi tour of Belfast and our driver Tom was incredibly knowledgeable and had personal experience with the troubles of the times. Signing the Peace Wall was the highlight of our trip! Our driver Jack and guide Richard had wonderful chemistry and made the day very fun and memorable. Schedule was kept to perfectly, and each stop had the perfect amount of time allocated to it. I highly recommend this tour!

This trip was amazing. The Black Taxi Tour of Belfast was both informative and compelling. Despite it being February we had warm, sunny weather that day. I was thrilled by the Giant's Causeway as it was more beautiful than I had imagined. Thanks Viator for putting together such a great itinerary!

We opted to do the Titanic exhibition in lieu of the black taxi tour and had an incredible time! Fabulous exhibition! Giant's Causeway was so beautiful! We were bummed that the weather prevented us from doing the rope bridge, but our guides took us to the Bushmills Distillery instead which was great! Our guides were so funny and worked very well together! This tour is definitely worth the money! We got a lot of bang for our buck!

What an amazing day! I am normally not a fan of being on a big bus, but this tour was wonderful. It was broken up in a fashion so that we weren't on the bus for too long at any one given time. Our tour guide, Kevin, was incredible. His knowledge was outstanding, and he was engaging and genuine. We especially loved the Irish mythology and history he shared, and how he weaved it together with music. It sparked so much interest, we've been buying books to learn even more. We're very grateful for such a wonderful experience!

Beautiful landscapes and history!! They packed in a lot in one day which I appreciate. It's a long day but definitely well worth it.
