What You Can Expect

Giant’s Causeway Day Trip from Belfast

Giant's Causeway

Emerge early and depart from central Belfast in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Giant’s Causeway. Stop first at Carrickfergus Castle, an impressive Norman fortress considered one of Northern Ireland’s best preserved. Hear of the structure’s intriguing history before travelling along the scenic Antrim Coast to the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. 

On arrival, conquer your fears and walk tentatively across the rickety bridge suspended 100 feet (30 meters) above the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean (own expense). If you’d prefer to keep your adrenaline levels stable, opt for a bracing walk along the coast instead. 

Continue onto the Old Bushmills Distillery, home to one of Ireland’s favorite brands of the amber nectar. Revitalize with lunch at the distilleries bar (own expense) and purchase special whiskey-related souvenirs from the gift shop. 

Then, begin the journey to your final stop, the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway. Listen to legends surrounding the formation of the mystifying natural wonder that consists of hexagonal rock columns that fit together like a puzzle. Climb the coastal stones; listen to intriguing myths; and feel the invigorating ocean breeze as you spend some leisurely time at the natural landmark.  

Relax during the scenic journey back to Belfast, which passes the medieval Dunluce Castle, and bid your guide farewell in central Belfast.

Full and enjoyable trip. Stephen our coach driver was very knowledgeable on various aspects of living in Ireland and the countryside, which was interesting as it's our first visit to Ireland. Carrick-A-Rede was a good, bracing walk! Giants Causeway was good to see, shame the weather was very wet and windy, we looked like drowned rats!. We would love to see it in good weather. Bushmills distillery was very welcoming. Well organised trip would certainly recommend. Gives an insight to the countryside.

Excellent way to explore the beauties of Northern Ireland by going outside major city centres. This tour offers you outstanding views of mountains, cliffs, glens, and oceans along with various stops along the way. Great experience to walk on and discover the Causeway.

I went on a quick trip to see the entire British Isles, but this tour was my favorite part by far. The driver was great, and the scenery was fantastic! I didn't expect the coast of Ireland to be so beautiful! We made just the right number of stops to not feel like we were on a bus for too long while getting to the main attractions: The Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge and Giant's Causeway. Both were incredibly beautiful. I definitely recommend this tour to everyone!
