What You Can Expect

Titanic Visitor Experience and Giant’s Causeway Day Trip from Dublin

Titanic Memorial

Leave Dublin in the early morning and head north out of the city by luxury coach. After roughly two hours you’ll arrive in Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland and home to the Titanic Visitor Experience – your first stop of the day. Living up to the hype that surrounded its opening in early 2012, this must-see center allows you to re-live the intriguing Titanic story on the very site where the ship was built.

As you walk through the exhibition’s galleries with your expert guide, learn about the ship’s creation, her fateful voyage and final resting place on the bed of the Atlantic Ocean. Explore the center’s interactive discovery zones, and encounter special effects, dark rides and full-scale reconstructions as you learn everything there is to know about the Titanic.

Your guided tour around the exhibition also includes a visit to the on-site Ocean Exploration Centre, where you’ll discover the sophisticated technologies that track the behavior of oceans and seabeds today.

After a break to take lunch at the center (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 rocky shores, wooded glens and quaint harbors.

After traveling 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 famous for its distinctive rock formations that span nearly 18 miles (29 km) of dramatic coastline.

After exploring this incredible site, meet your guide and carry on to explore the dramatic Dunluce Caste. The castle, which dates back to the 17th century, is surrounded by extremely steep drops on either side at the coach for the journey back. Take a brief stop in the pretty town of Castlebelingham to stretch your legs, before arriving in Dublin in the evening.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

A long day but as expected, covered three places of interest at different locations, yet worth every minute. Our tour guide was 1st class, he provided an excellent condensed Irish history lesson on the road which prepared us well to appreciate the sights even more and made our coach drive seem shorter than what it was and much more enjoyable. The driver drove at appropriate speeds, always safe, expert hands.

Fantastic day! Fun-filled and packed with interesting information, especially a quick history lesson on the rocky relationship between the Republic and Northern Ireland. The three planned activities were phenomenal...the Titanic exhibit was well-worth it...a great tribute to the hard work of the Irish who built the ship as well as the victims of the tragedy. The Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge was stellar as was the Giant's Causeway....the latter being a heritage site. In addition to these planned events, guests could have opted out of the Titanic exhibit and instead, chosen to take a Belfast taxi tour of "The Troubles," with a Belfast native who provided a lengthy explanation of the tensions that swept the area for the last few decades. In addition to all the great sites and commentary I want to also commend our guide Richie and driver, Carl, for making a judgement call in favor of the majority of passengers. Whilst at the Titanic exhibit, Richie was very clear about the pick-up time in order to stay on schedule for the remainder of the day's events. It turned out that two passengers chose to not return on time. We waited 20 minutes and then left them. I was very pleased this happened because we all paid a lot of money for a tour that was time-specific. I give the guys credit for putting us first. Richie told us later the couple complained via a phone call and couldn't understand what the big deal was. I bet they won't be late for a tour again! Excellent value and a super day! My only criticism is that even though the bus picked us up right in front of our hotel, The Gresham on O'Connell Street...it was unable to drop us off there due to afternoon street construction. After a very long day this was a bit annoying to have to walk from the other side of the Liffey back up to the hotel.
