What You Can Expect

Belfast Day Trip from Dublin

Belfast's iconic Harland & Wolff cranes, known locally as Samson and Goliath

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.

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

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.

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.

The Belfast tour was spectacular. Our guide, Kevin, was informative and funny. The peace walls and the Christmas Market that was set up in the town square during our tour were definite highlights, as were Dundrum Castle and Down Cathedral where St. Patrick is buried. I highly recommend this tour, you will NOT be disappointed.

Excellent tour guide very knowledgeable and patient with my 70 year old parents. The only downside to the tour was a non-English speaking group of 6 who kept speaking above the tour guide amongst themselves interrupting the 11 hour tour about 10x, even after trying to use universal signals to be quiet they continued to speak/chat louder than our tour guide. And he was over the loud speaker!

Gabriel is a great guide and a skilful driver - fun, helpful, knowledgeable, interesting! Our initial expectation was that we're going for visiting Belfast and learning more about The Troubles. But we got so much more! In the end we were amazed with pleasant surprises, singing, beautiful picturesque tour with lots of breathtaking sights by the seaside. Our visit to Ireland would not have been complete without having this tour! We highly recommend it. Thank you Gabriel!

A great day out from Dublin, , are guide for the day was tony , who was a brilliant guide
on this tour you get to see the Belfast peace walls , and see all off the murals painted on the walls
after visiting the peace walls we were then driven to the city centre off Belfast , where we given around 1 hour and 45 minutes to do are own thing in this very cosmopolitan city
in the afternoon we were taken to Downpatrick to visit the saint Patrick centre and watch a short but very interesting film
my favourite part of the day was visiting the ruins of dundrum castle and its spectacular views , and then get to drive through the mourne mountains with its beautiful views
I would recommend doing this tour while in Dublin
