Everything was perfect. The tour ran smoothly, the sites were amazing, and there were so many stops that gave us a great feel for Northern Ireland. I loved every second of it and would recommend the tour to everyone.
This tour was so much fun and Pat and Alan, our tour guides, were wonderful. They were both incredibly kind and hilarious. Everything was so beautiful and they each had a lot of stories to share about the different areas we were in. It was very easy to find Pat in the train station in Dublin, too. Originally I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to find the group before they left. This trip was definitely worth the money. At the end Alan also threw in a 30 minute driving tour of Belfast which was very interesting.
It was the best tour I went on in Ireland The views from the Causeway made the train ride worth it. If you are not into scenery skip it, half the tour is getting there.
AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! Recommending it to all my friends. Allen, Dave and Brandon made it especially memorable. Will definitely book all my tours through them on my next trip. Thanks for a great time.
After an easy train trip to Belfast, we were met by Stephen and treated to a wonderful drive around Northern Ireland. Stephen was informative and easy in his manner. We really enjoyed our tour!
Overall tour was excellent! Although we were delayed for over an hour out of Dublin due to snow, Viator had bus waiting and completed tour on schedule with plenty of time at every stop! 5 Stars!
Well organised trip with the railways,everything ontime. Great tour guide an exceptional bus driver, the Gaints Causeway was absolutely a sight to see. Highly recomend this trip
I booked this tour because it included everything that I wanted to see in Northern Ireland. I was not disappointed. We got lucky with beautiful weather and the scenery was amazing. The Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge was my favorite. The views were stunning. It is a group tour, so you do feel rushed at times, and it is a long day, but well worth it.
This trip was organised on line.Confirmation given & all finalised so there was no guesswork from our end. The tour guide & bus driver were so knowledgeable, wonderful sense of humour & ran to a tight time table so that we were not hanging around waiting for the stragglers. We have never experienced such a fabulous day as the train & bus trip from Dublin to Giant's Causeway. We will have no hesitation in recommending it to our fellow travellers. Thank you all so much for our great memories. PENNY & BERNIE MONTGOMERY & DESREE-ILONA CRAWFORD (Queensland- Australia)
Scenic Northern Ireland. Wish we had a short time to tour Belfast before boarding our train!
This was a great tour. The guide was well knowledgeable and nice. The train and coach bus were nice to travel in. I would do this tour again--everything was just so nice and easy so i could relax and enjoy the sites.
The Carrick- A- Rede bridge is not as scary as it looks. The thing they don't tell you though, is that, if you think you cross it once and its all over, you have to cross it back too!!! The Giant's Causeway is extremely beautiful, and especially enjoyed by children and people who like to climb! I suggest walking the way down and taking the trolley back up, otherwise you might not make it back in time. But be warned if you don't know already, part of northern Ireland ie. Giant's Causeway they are governed by the U.K. so Pounds are rather perferred than Euros. The train ride is also nice. But BE PREPARED FOR EXTRA EXPENSES!!! Crossing the bridge is and extra fee per- person, and so is the certificate saying you crossed the bridge. Tipping and the trolley ride at Giant's Causeway is also not included. Tipping in Ireland is expected. When you stop for lunch, have ice cream for .75 Pounds across the street delicious!!! The tour guide was great.

This is a beautiful part of Ireland and the tour takes you right along the rugged coastline. The bus driver regularly cracked jokes, which I found to be genuinely amusing.... and so did everyone else. The Giant's Causeway is a real must-see and I'm so glad I went. It's a long day if you are travelling up from Dublin, but highly worthwhile.
excellent trip, although found Belfast a bit disturbing to visit, the Glens were grand and the causeway, well.......
Excellent tour, it was really the highlight of my 2 weeks in Ireland, I would have liked to stay at the Causeway for the entire day, it is truly a natural wonder.
We had a great trip. It was very exciting going to Northern Ireland. The planning was great, the country wonderful and I loved the Gian'ts Causeway. Very fun! Great guide.
This was an unbelievable experience. If I would have one negative to say about it, it would be that there weren't enough hours in the day to spend at the Giant's Causeway. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat!
The bus driver and Pat Fallon were both fantastic! It was a great experience and one that we will remember forever.
It was great. The guide waited at the train station, and in Belfast the coach was waiting. The guide and driver was great in his commentary, the route to Giant's Causeway is beautiful. All the stops along the route were scenic, and crossing the Carrick-a-Rede rope was indeed an experience. We also saw a bit of Belfast from the coach! Highly recommended!
This trip was absolutely fantastic! When you go to the restaurant get the Beef Stew! You will NOT regret it. Overall, awesome trip
A wonderful day trip! Only problem was getting the rail service from Dublin to Belfast because of the accident that had occurred a few months back. The transfers from bus to rail to bus was a bit tedious but the scenery was spectacular! As a suggestion you may want to email persons who have paid for the trip to let them know of their options of a refund or a trip later on, way ahead of schedule and not 24 hours before the trip. Thanks again.
