I really liked this trip - all of it. I had especially wanted to see the Giant's Causeway and it was just as beautiful as I thought it would be; but the rest of the trip on the train, the bus along the coast, the tour guide, all made for a very enjoyable day. To top it off, we had beautiful weather! Fran C. Castle Rock, Colorado, USA
Despite the somewhat rainy weather we encountered, this tour was fantastic. We enjoyed the 2 1/4 hour train ride from Dublin to Belfast - went very quick in the comfort and roominess of train. An escort was with us the entire time. We were taken immediately upon arrival to tour bus. The scenery was just beautiful. We had to trudge through the rain to walk the Carrick Rede Rope Bridge. A little windy and hairy but despite the weather not too bad walking across it. The rain stopped by the time we reach Giant's Causeway. It was very windy, but my boys enjoyed walking along the slippery rocks (due to earlier rain). We climbed a path to the top to overlook to get different perspective. Stopped at Bushmill's Distillery for lunch; great place to warm up! Would totally recommend this trip rain or shine!
The whole trip from beginning to end was amazing, Our tour guides both on the train and coach were very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information about the geography and history of the area. The weather couldn't have been better.
Our favorite tour of the trip. The Giant's Causeway is difficult to describe. We had excellent weather and visibility and the pictures are post card ready. Easy train ride to Belfast and fun, yet scary bus ride through the mountains. Walking across the suspended bridge was fun. This is a must do trip for anyone going to Dublin.
Sean and Patrick were great guides!! The weather was awesome and so was the scenery. I would do it again in a heartbeat!
Wow! My family, including a tween and teenager, loved this tour! The synopsis doesn't cover everything that you get to see and experience. It was out first trip to Ireland and it was a favorite part of our entire vacation. We also loved, Brian, our tour guide. Very informative and fun!
The trip was spectacular and our guide Paddy did everything that he could to make it an enjoyable experience. He had made all arrangements for train and bus travel, stayed with the group for the entire trip and was available for any and all questions. And the Causeway Road was one of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen. The countryside included the brightest greens that one could imagine, the sea views were spectacular and I wanted to move to one of the many small fishing villages that we saw along the way. The rope bridge was also lots of fun. I definitely recommend this tour.
This was the best part of our whole trip to Ireland, no fuss with fantastic scenery! So glad we chose the one that included the carrick a rede rope bridge, it was the best part! The tour included more than we even thought it would and Paddy, our tour guide was amazing!
My son's family reported that they very much enjoyed this trip. They particularly complimented the comfortable coach (which they transferred to after their train arrival) and the tour guide. The trip to Bushmills was an unexpected highlight. They really enjoyed being able to have personalized labels made for their purchased bottles. Although it was a long day, particularly with a toddler, they had so much fun it was worth it!
This is an amazing tour. Try to see if you can get the local price, I'm not sure what group runs the tour, but it's possible they offer it for less than Viator offers it for. Either way, it is amazing and unforgettable. Giant's Causeway was possibly our favorite activity of the whole trip. The bridge is a must do, it's just awesome and the view is great. The tour to Bushmill's was also great.
This tour was great! I was able to pick up the train in Dublin to Belfast and then ride a bus from there to the Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. It was just me so I had plently of time to walk around and see the sites I wanted to see. If you have kids or want to take your time it might be better to drive there for the day. My tour guide Jim was also very knowledgeable and shared many bits of information and history on the train and bus ride to the destinations. There is plenty to see and these sites are definitely a must see while in Ireland!
