What You Can Expect

Belfast Day Trip from Dublin

Belfast Day Trip from Dublin

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.

You’ll then have two hours to get lunch and independently explore the city. Visit the Irish Republican History Museum (entrance fee included), the Belfast Cathedral (also known as St Anne’s Cathedral), and the historic Harland and Wolff dry docks, where the Titanic was built.

The return trip to Dublin stops at Saint Patrick Centre, just a short walk from Down Cathedral and the resting place of Saint Patrick, patron saint of Ireland. Then continue on to the picturesque village of Dundrum, where you can explore the ruins of one of Ireland’s finest Norman castles. The last leg of your journey takes you through the Mourne Mountains, where views of stark beauty will leave you with a lasting image of Ireland’s majestic north.

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

Yesterday, David was our driver. He was one of the best tours I have done. His knowledge is clearly very good and he communicated it well, without taking sides. David ensured we had a very enjoyable day.

I absolutely loved this tour and Alex the driver is a great tour guide as well with lots of stories about the area. Do yourself a favour when you get to Belfast and visit the Crown Hotel even if your not a beer drinker this pub has the best stained glass window out side of a church that you with see. Another place that will cost you nothing to see is the town hall it's beautiful

Informative, interesting. Darin hope I got that right was very informative and fun. Helped a great deal with understanding their checkered history. I don't understand violence but do understand the motivating forces behind the rebellion. The highlights are hit, but if you want more time at exhibits more than 30 minutesI suggest a longer tour. It did not include information on architecture and general history of the city. The focus was on the rebellion which is fine with me. Saw some beautiful bucolic countryside on the way back.

Stephanie was a wealth of information and made the experience really interesting. We went off the beaten path as well which was a real bonus and got to see so much of the country that i would probably never see in my lifetime.

All in all a great day out with a quality guide
