What You Can Expect

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

Explore Belfast's political past

In the early morning, your private guide will pick you up from your central Dublin hotel and then drive you north out of the city. Relaxing in the comfort of your luxury coach, sit back and enjoy the sights while your guide explains the day’s itinerary. After a journey of roughly two hours, arrive in Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, in time for your black cab tour.

On a route around the city, your guide will talk you through the highs and lows of Belfast’s fascinating political history. Hear of its industrial roots, the past four decades of civil unrest, and of its current regeneration; many say the city’s heyday is still to come!

Look out for several of the top Belfast attractions that chart key events in its history, like the Harland and Wolff shipyard where the Titanic was built and Belfast Docks -- where numerous ships were made in the city's industrial days. See political murals as you pass through the Falls and Shankill neighborhoods where Belfast’s Unionist and Nationalist cultures live on opposing sides of the Belfast peace wall.

After a break to take refreshments in the city (own expense), leave the city lights of Belfast behind and hit the road to the Northern Irish coast. Following a route known as the Antrim Coastal Drive, pass spectacular scenery including stony shores, densely wooded glens and picture-perfect harbors.

After driving for roughly two hours, arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Giant’s Causeway, where you’ll have more than two hours to explore at leisure. Created more than 60 million years ago after a series of volcanic eruptions, the causeway is best known for its distinctive rock formations that span nearly 18 miles (29 km) of coastline.

On the journey back to Dublin take a brief stop in the pretty town of Castlebelingham to stretch your legs, before arriving at your hotel in the evening.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

OUTSTANDING! Host on the bus trip was very knowledgeable and even enthused about the aspects he pointed out; also appreciated the skills of the experienced bus driver dealing with traffic . The Black Taxi Tour was very evenly handed in explanation. The personal retelling brought to life how the historic as well as current political/cultural situation has evolved. I highly recommend it. Giant's Causeway was absolutely mindboggling! It is a must. This tour was a highlight of being able to see the most of the Belfast and the natural beauty of the country side! Great value in every way.

The Black Taxi Tour was amazing. Even my 5 and 8 year olds were interested in listening to Tom's telling of the troubles of Belfast. The Giant's Causeway and rope bridge were beautiful!
