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.

Brilliant day trip with excellent driver/guides Ian and Stevie from McCombs. Picked us up on time, clean bus, plenty of breaks, loads of info and stories as we drove to each place. Lovely lunch at the Bushmills distillery and loads of time at the Giants Causeway which was spectacular. Belfast and surrounding areas are amazing, really worth a visit.

Excellent, friend service. The pickup from my hotel was on time and very efficient. Mark, our driver, was excellent and provide our tour group with many time and cost saving tips and excellent narration. There was very good time management so we had more than sufficient time at Carrick-a-rede rope bridge and Giant's Causeway. The coach buses were spacious and seats were comfortable.

Tips:
1 It can get very rainy intermittent heavy rain and wind in the northern coast, so bring a raincoat, NOT an umbrella. Bring a Barbour rain resistant jacket or similar. Some people who brought umbrellas quickly found their umbrellas destroyed by the wind. Also, if you attempt to cross the rope bridge with wind blowing your umbrella, you may lose balance.
2 The quality of the lunch at Bushmill distillery is ok, but not great. Get something fast like a sandwich so that you can spend a little more time at the Bushmill distillery.
3 Wear comfortable shoes with grippe soles, especially at Giant's Causeway where the ground is sometimes wet and uneven. There were two women in high heels and I think they regretted their footwear choices. From the bus drop off point, there is another bus to go to the Giant's Causeway formation for 1 EUR/way.
4 The drivers do not solicit any tips, but I highly recommend that you tip them in the basket because it is an important source of income for their handwork. You are on holiday after all and they are working.
