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 tour guide was very informative and we learned a lot from him. I highly recommend the Black Taxi Tour for anyone who likes history or wants to learn about Ireland as a country, it was amazing. 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.

Can't say enough great things about wild rover! First off, the coach itself is superb. Comfortable seating, clean, and wifi on board. Multiple stops for bathroom breaks. No food or drink on the bus, FYI. fine with us as it was clean and we had gotten spilled on during a previous tour with aDifferent company!

My husband and I did two tours with wild rover while we were in Dublin. First, we did Belfast and giants causeway. Two completely different experiences but both completely amazing. Our guide, Jim, was fantastic. There was a delay with the bus, but Jim and wild rover handled it professionally, responsibly, and because of their reaction, have some of the best customer service I have ever seen. Awesome trip! Driver John was great and we loved his accent!

Our second trip was to Kilkenny with Groinya and John was just as great. Plenty of time at all the stops and her knowledge and humor with every thing was out of this world. We personally didn't have kids traveling with us, but there were a few in our group. She brought them into her discussions with ease and made things easy for them to understand as well.

top notch tour company and highly, highly recommend!

Black Cab tour with Tom excellent, do not miss opportunity to take this tour The giants causeway and rope bridge was also super. tour takes 12 hours from Dublin so some resilience required, although plenty of stops ensure trip is comfortable
