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.

This trip was absolutely splendid, mostly because of the extraordinary guide/driver, Bud, who was extremely well informed, very personable, highly engaging, kind, sweet and courteous, and a very skilled driver. I learned a great deal about Belfast and Ireland in general, and would happily do another tour, especially if Bud were the guide.

Fantastic tour - highly recommend it! After driving around Ireland for 2 weeks on our own we decided to take a tour. We usually don't take tours but this one sounded interesting - I am so glad we did. It was great to have someone else do the driving, find a parking spot and know where to stop. All we had to do was sit back and enjoy it - and we certainly did! Even my 13 year old son loved it! Caroline was the tour guide and she was a wealth of knowledge about Ireland, Belfast and all the sights along the way. She played music, managed the lot of us with all our needs and even belted out a ballad for us herself! Owen, the driver, handled the roads with expert precision. My son who is prone to motion sickness, didn't get ill, despite the winding roads, due to Owen's fantastic driving! We stopped frequently to see sights castle, church, Titanic in addition to meal breaks. Writing our own words on the Peace Wall was definitely a highlight for us. Highly recommend this tour! Ask for Caroline and Owen - they were fantastic!!

Absolutely worth the money and Sandra the driver and host was incredible!
She drove well, made the trip interesting with her commentary, joked and kept things light and happy even though my friend and I kept her and the bus waiting a couple of times while taking fotos...She was sweet with the children on the trip and could not have been more delightful!
This day-out is a long one, we left Dublin at 8 am and got back at 7 pm and it's very good value for the money...The one disappointment for us was how few of the passengers rewarded Sandra with a tip at the end of her long day, we did and she deserved it. Go on this day out, go with Sandra, enjoy Belfast and give her a tip please?
