Your coach leaves early from central Dublin, arriving in Belfast mid-morning. Upon arrival, your full-day trip begins with a guided coach tour of Belfast City. Spy hundreds of colorful wall murals that depict the city’s tangled political history, and view the peace walls that stand between the Catholic and Protestant communities.

After lunch and free time, your guide takes you to the HMS Caroline, a combat ship that served in both WWI and WWII, to tour the ship. Then with your guide explore the Titanic Experience.

You’ll arrive back to your starting point in Dublin by mid-evening.

The IRA museum was a bit too much considering the time we had. I would've preferred a city tour of Belfast instead. The tour guides were excellent.

The tour was ok. The allotted times to visit sites was to short. We got slowed down on the return for rush hour traffic, it would have been nice if they extended our visits time to avoid the traffic.

An all day rain hampered the views out the windows and shortened the visit to the HMS Caroline battleship but overall the trip was very good. Sandra was both driver and tour guide and she kept up a steady stream of “Irish history in a nutshell” during the 2+ hour drive to Belfast. She concentrated on the parts of the past that were the background for the conflicts and troubles of modern Belfast and how things stand now since the peace agreement. The Republican museum is very small but interesting. There is a visit to the walls of murals and the peace wall and she provided markers for those who wanted to sign it. We drove through both sections of the city, had time in city centre for a cafe lunch and a walk around, visited the battleship with enough time to tour inside it, and had 2 hours at the titanic exhibit. The titanic exhibition is well worth the time- includes economics, work conditions at the shipyard and factories of Dublin as well as the info on the ship and disaster. There is video of the wreckage on the sea bottom as well as accounts of the search for the wreck. The exhibition sits right where the ship was built and the building is unique and beautiful. Don’t miss it just because you’ve seen one of the titanic museums in the US- this one is different.

It was a great experience. Wish we had time to go into the Titantic Museum and not just see it from the outside.

Noel was so knowledgeable and went above and beyond with the time we had. The tour was non-biased, and showed the real Belfast.

So the bus broke down outside of Dublin not halfway to Belfast. Nevertheless the tour guide / bus driver kept us all entertained with his ever-present sense of humor, almost as if it were a part of the tour. One has to be amazed at the historical knowledge of these tour guides as they mix Irish history with anecdotes that keep you always wanting more.

in the end we were able to see everything we were scheduled to see including plenty of time to visit a local eating establishment (pub) for lunch. I highly recommend this tour.

A big thank you to Jim, the tour guide that day.

This was our absolute favorite tour in Ireland. The tour leader was well informed, gracious and did a wonderful job shepherding us through Belfast. We were especially moved during the tour of the catholic and protestant walled communities where you can cut the tension with a knife. The tour leader pointed out that he has experienced folks jeering his tourist van in the protestant area and even noted that a neighborhood tavern could possibly be a life threatening experience for someone from the Irish republic as he noted that there are still extremists on both sides who want to rekindle the violence. The graffiti is something to behold on the barriers between both communities. We also saw a W W 1 war ship which was interesting and of course, the spectacular Titanic experience which REALLY is an experience for those still enthralled with the story of this famous ship. Belfast is about 2 hours from Dublin and the tour does include a nice rest stop in each direction.
