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 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

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.
