What You Can Expect

Northern Ireland including Giant's Causeway Rail Tour from Dublin

Rope Bridge, Ireland

Departing from Dublin Connolly Station you'll travel by train to Belfast (light breakfast available onboard). Upon arrival in Belfast, your coach tour will head to the famous Antrim Coast Road, crossing the lovely Glens of Antrim en route to Ballycastle and the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. From here, you can glimpse the Scottish coast on a clear day. Note that the bridge is open from March to October only and there's a small local charge if you cross the bridge.

Next, you'll continue to the stunning Giant's Causeway, renowned for its polygonal basalt columns. It's fun to walk around, so be sure to wear good walking shoes!

After making a photo stop at historic Dunluce Castle, it's time to return to Belfast to catch your train to Dublin Connolly Station (snacks available)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

It was a great day but a very long day. The train ride was comfortable. The food and drink cart comes to you and you can order hot sandwiches. The bus ride up to northern coast to the Giant's Causeway was absolutely stunning. The rope bridge was fun to cross but it is a long walk to get to it and then back to the bus. Lunch at Bushmills was fine. Nothing special. The Giant's Causway was really cool. It is a little bit of a walk to get down to the ocean. There is a bus for a small fee. The stones are very hard to walk on. They are extremely slippery. You really have to take your time and be careful. We had good weather and could see Scotland. It was a nice time to visit (the end of November) as it wasn't crowded.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

We visited Dublin in September 2014 and made a point to take this tour. It is long, but worth it. There are so many sights covered and it is a long trip, so be warned. The best part of the trip for me was the Rope Bridge. Although I was terrified, it was worth the hike across, as you can get some really nice pictures.
I highly recommend taking this tour over some of the other coach only tours- as the scenery on the train was incredible!
