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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2018

We had a great day with The Giant's Causeway as the culmination of a whole day of sights and places to stop and experience. Two castles, Bushmills Distillery, Carrick-a-rede rope bridge, the narrow Antrim coast road and the beautiful coastal towns! So much information and fun anecdotes from our bus driver, Patrick. He even managed to be in just the right place for an entire busload to applaud a great putt on one of the golf courses adjacent to the road. Lunch was great and the whole trip was scheduled to be as efficient as possible. Well done McComb's and well done Patrick!

We spent almost 10 hours of a lovely day in July with Viator trip to Giant's Causeway. I loved every moment of it. First the coastal route through the beautiful Antrim where we made several stops. We also had plenty of time at the day's main attraction. A lot of thanks to our driver Patrick for sharing all his knowledge and humour with us.

Our guide Ray was extremely knowledgable and maintained a running commentary throughout our drive including historical highlights, current interests Game of Thrones filiming venues etc. and information about each village we passed through. Spectacular coastline and a very good meal in a local pub added to the main attractions. The Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge are world class and not to be missed.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2018

The trip was brilliant and the driver of the Company Coombs Travel was very informative and was extremely well informed.

The additional banter from the driver made the travelling to and from the venue an added pleasure.

Only one small criticism and this related to the very short amount of time spent at Bushmills Distillery but it was a very packed day
