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 (own expense). 

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.

I loved this tour. Northern Ireland is so beautiful that just driving around on the bus would have made for a memorable day but everywhere we stopped took my breath away and I was able to text pictures home that made all of my friends envious.

Other than the rain we encountered which is to be expected, this tour was perfect. The Northern Coast is beautiful. You see some Game of Thrones filming locations and walk the rope bridge which is super fun. You view seven coastal towns along the glens. Giant's Causeway is a great stop. If you do the walking tour it will greatly limit the time you have at the actual site.

Excellent tour, tour guide chatted all day and was very amusing. Giant Causeway tour guide excellent too.
We had an extra stop because traffic allowed this and this stop was interesting for Game of Thrones fans and a much better use of time than waiting for our bridge entry time slot. We were picked up from our hotel and the bus very comfortable, so hassle free.
Lunch in the pub was lovely too, all in all a great day out!! Slainte

Excellent day -would highly recommend. First stop was Carrickfergus to take photos of the castle and William of Orange. Next was Carrick a rede for a walk across the rope bridge for those who dared! Onto a local pub for a delicious bar meal followed by a stop at the Bushmills whiskey distillery with optional tasting. Finally we arrived at the giants causeway-well worth the wait. Our driver/tour guide Patrick-who else would it be in Ireland: totally made the day. He was very informative all the way there and back and when he didn't have any information for us he filled the time with rubbish jokes -hilarious.
