The Basics

Although it’s possible to arrive independently, many visitors opt for a round-trip tour from Dublin with transportation and entrance fees included. Guided Causeway excursions, with upgrades for private tours or luxury coaches, often include stops at other nearby attractions such as the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, the Bushmills Distillery, and Dunluce Castle.

Notable formations at the Giant’s Causeway include the Chimney Stacks, Giant's Harp, and Honeycomb, all of which are favorites of visiting photographers. Spot these formations and other stunning views framed by the windswept cliffs on your walk over the columns to the edge of the sea.

Awesome tour and perfect day
Our driver Patrick was perfect. He explained everything really well. Lunch was called into the restaurant in advance so when we got there we just sat down and they brought it out. Giants Causeway was absolutely amazing. And the Game of Thrones portion was really good too. Dark hedges was very great to see in person. And the cushendon caves were amazing.

Guided Day Tour: Giant's Causeway from Belfast
Weather on the day was heavy rain but Comfortable new coach, very good driver (Paul) with a few funny stories and lots of info provided. Great scenery and stops. Pity both road Bridge and Bushmills were closed due to covid. Warning that it is a 20 min walk down to the giants causeway but a steep incline back which is not great if you have any disabilities. We did not know but you can book a buggy there and back (£13!). I recommend the tour(8 hrs app) as great value for money.

Fantastic day made memorable by the lovely & very knowledgeable guide Amanda, and driver Patrick. Was our first time outside of Belfast and was blow away by how stunning the costal route to Giants Causeway is. Enjoyed all the GOT film locations that we stopped at, ones that were pointed out to us and all the gossip along the way. Throughly enjoyed ourselves. Modern comfortable clean coach. Value for money? absolutely.

This tour blew us away. We went for Giant’s Causeway, but got so much more! The Games of Thrones content was an added bonus. Our guide was a fellow Canadian, but very knowledgeable of Northern Ireland.

Giant's Causeway Premium Day Tour from Belfast (Includes Admissions)
A great tour! Stuart the coach driver was very knowledgable and gave a very informative, fun commentary. Various stops to take in views, most also had a shop or cafe too. Stopped for lunch at the Fullerton Arms for pre-ordered food (order taken by Stuart) And then on to The Giant’s Causeway. Price of our tour covered a guided tour, so well worth it if you not been before. In all a great day out.

Game of Thrones and Giant's Causeway Full-Day Tour from Belfast
This tour was a great way to see the sights on the Antrim coast and the Giant's Causeway. Patrick, our tour guide, was one of the best parts of the tour. It rained the morning we were set, and ended up with a beautiful sunny day. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in Game of Thrones or Irish history.

Guided Day Tour of Giant's Causeway from Belfast by Comfortable Coach
Giant's Causeway is beautiful. Unfortunately, you cannot choose the weather, so try to do this tour on a sunny day, else your experience is somewhat limited. Our tour guide was excellent. The only bad thing was when the bus broke down and we had to wait for an hour on the freeway for another one to come and pick us up.

I havent gone on a couch tour in a long time but this tour was just amazing. The bus was really comfortable and the tour guide was very personable, easy to understand and fun. DRIVER did great on the wee roads and we just had a great time exploring the GOT filming locations and the Giants Causeway was completely amazing. I would highly recommend this tour. The lunch was also surprisingly really good.

Sean Mc with Wild Rover was a great guide! Dunluce Castle is lovely, and Giants Causeway is as long/strenuous a walk as you make it.

How to Get There

The Causeway Coastal Route, a scenic drive between Belfast and Derry/ Londonderry, is a popular option for independent travelers—stop at Rathlin Island and Ballintoy along the way. Alternatively, arrive via organized tour from both Belfast (a 1.5-hour drive) and Dublin (a 3-hour drive).

When to Get There

Opening times vary seasonally; check the Giant’s Causeway website for the latest hours, including the Visitor Center schedule. Expect wind and rain during winter and visit earlier in the day for a quieter experience before the tour groups arrive.

Irish Folklore

These rock formations get their name from an old legend about Irish warrior Finn McCool and his Scottish rival, Benandonner. Per the tale, McCool built a path across the sea to face his rival, eventually defeating Benandonner by dressing as a baby; Benandonner feared McCool was the child of a giant and didn’t dare to face him. On his way back to Scotland, Benandonner tears up the path behind him, leaving behind only the Giant's Causeway and similar rock formations on the Scottish island of Staffa.
