What You Can Expect

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

Titanic Memorial

Start the day with pickup from select Dublin hotels in the early morning and head north out of the city by luxury coach. After roughly two hours, 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 relive the intriguing Titanic story on the very site where the ship was built.

As you walk through the exhibition’s galleries, 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. Visit 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. Stop to admire the romantic views of the ruins of the 15th-century Dunluce Castle, which rest at the edge of a dramatic cliff. Fans of hit TV show Game of Thrones may recognize this as the setting of the House of Greyjoy.

After traveling for roughly two hours, arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Giant’s Causeway, where you’ll have 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 embark on an exhilarating walk across the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, which is suspended over an intimidating chasm between the mainland and Carrick-a-Rede Island. The surrounding headlands were used as a filming location for Game of Thrones.

Come later afternoon, begin the journey home. Take a brief stop in the pretty town of Castlebelingham to stretch your legs, before arriving in Dublin in the evening.

Had a fantastic day out.Guide was good and very informative.New stylish Titanic museum experience was great. i really loved the Giant's Causeway.There are lots of walking to the Giant's Causeway and to the Carrick-a-rede bridge but all worth.The sun shine the whole day and places were overcrowded. Didn't have enough time to get back from Carrick-a-rede bridge. We had nearly to run back to get to bus in time. Trip worth doing.A most enjoyable day. Thanks.

A fantastic day trip to Rock of Cashel, Blarney and Cork! Our driver/guide, Gus, was entertaining, knowledgeable and shared a lot of entertaining stories. It was amazing how he navigated the roads, told stories, and pointed out highlights along the way. By the end of the trip, he seemed like an old friend that we met up in Ireland. The itinerary suggested Rock of Cashel as the last destination. Since it was October and daylight was getting less, Gus cleverly changed Rock of Cashel to the first stop so we had the opportunity to explore this Heritage site. We continued to the highlight of the trip, Blarney Castle where a climb of 100 or so steps to kiss the Blarney Stone. Our journey continued to Cork where we had time to explore the city a bit. The trip was nearly 12 hour long but at the end, we wished that it was not yet over.

Anyone interested in recent Irish history will love this tour.Our guide Frenchy was very informative and witty.My wife and I are big Titanic fans so the opportunity to see were it all began was wonderful.The coast of Northern Ireland is beautiful and the walk to the Giants Causeway and the bridge was fantastic. The sun shone the whole day and we were treated with a free view of Scotland. A must see if in Ireland.

Great tour! Jim was a good and informative guide. The titanic exhibition was great although we didn't have enough time to complete it. There are lots of walking to the Giant's Causeway and to the Carrick-a-rede bridge but all worth the trek! All 3 places were crowded but you will still get to enjoy your time there

Fantastic tour! There is a lot of walking, climbing type activities during this tour. If you are fairly active, it's no problem. If you have limited mobility, this would be a challenging day for you.
The tour guide was informative and she had lots of information about the history of Northern Ireland.
I absolutely loved the Giant's Causeway. I have seen lots of photos, but once you are actually standing there, it's surreal.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Wonderful day trip. We could have had more time at the Titanic Museum because it is excellent and there is so much to see. The Giant's Causeway was even more amazing than the photos.

I recently did the trip to the Giants Causeway with my grandson Lucas.
Included was a tour in the Black taxi. Fantastic you see places you would not normally go to.
And the Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge.
Out guide was Rob, He has so much knowledge, it was absolutely brilliant.
We enjoyed it so much we booked to go to Kilkenny the same week. It was like going out with the family.
They gave so much information about Ireland that it makes you want to come back for more.
Kilkenny was amazing, the caves were something not to be missed. And Kilkenny Castle.
The wishing well. And the walks to the lakes. Yes, like a family day out.
So much fitted into the two trips.
Rob had time to talk to everyone. I told him he should do a CD of each trip.
We go back to France after a fabulous week, and more knowledge of ireland.
thanks for the ice cream Bill
