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.

Liam was a great guide. This tour was on Christmas Eve day so it was great he was willing to offer this so close to Christmas. He was full of information and was very friendly and helpful. We learned all about Northern Ireland.

We had great time in Ireland and thanks to Viator for great services they provided. We loved our tours as the viator staff and the tour guides were friendly and professional. We felt like we had family member with us and we were very happy and comfortable with all of our tours that we took Trains and buses. Due to this great experience with viator, we will be using them again for our next overseas trip/tour. Thanks Viator for exceptional services and affordable tours.
