Northern Ireland Highlights Day Trip Including Giant's Causeway from Dublin

Explore Belfast's political past

Your full-day tour of Northern Ireland’s major sights starts with early-morning hotel pickup in central Dublin. (Be sure to grab your coffee and breakfast for the ride, because it will two hours before you arrive in Belfast.)

An iconic black cab awaits you in Northern Ireland’s beautiful and infamous capital. This tour gives you a safe and introspective account of this impassioned city, most well known for its history of political and religious unrest. Explore Belfast’s Falls and Skankill neighborhoods, where hundreds of ornate murals impart Unionist and Nationalist political messaging in glorious color. Learn of the city’s industrial roots, its divisive conflict and its current youthful revival.

During the tour, you’ll see several of Belfast’s top attractions, including sites such as the Belfast Docks and the Harland and Wolff shipyard — snapshots of the city’s industrial beginnings. If the sentiment takes you, feel free to request a stop at other notable sites like the Peace Wall, where you can add your name to those of other peacemakers who have touched this monumental city.

The next leg of your journey is the grand Antrim Coastal Drive, taking you along Ireland’s wild, rocky north coast for dramatic sea views and the fairy-tale glens of Antrim. Speaking of drama, catch a view of Dunluce Castle, a medieval construction that’s enjoying a second life is as the House of Greyjoy in the award-winning TV series Game of Thrones.

The 2-hour drive brings you to the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Giant’s Causeway. Stretch your legs and enjoy a meander through this geological wonder that has been the source of many Irish myths. Then punctuate your tour of the north with an invigorating walk across the teetering, 80-foot-high (24-meter) Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (not for the faint-hearted!). After you’ve had your adrenaline boost for the day (or year), get cozy in your coach seat for the ride back to Dublin for hotel drop-off.

What a Great Day. Our guide Yoan was both entertaining and provided a tremendous overview of the history of this region of the world. Breathtaking views at the Giants Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.The story of Belfast's conflicts and seeing its ornate murals was thought provoking.

Awesome day. Johan, the tour guide and David the driver did an excellent job all day long. It was informative and enjoyable. The Belfast Black Taxi tour was quite enlightening. Our taxi driver's up-close and personal perspective was eye-opening. Definitely worth the trip!

This tour is a great way to see the north of Ireland from Dublin. It doesn't take long on the motorway to get to Belfast but the stop at the applegreen rest area was a great place to buy sandwiches so that we didn't waste any time in a restaurant for lunch. The Black Taxi drivers took us to Belfast's Peace Wall area of the city. We toured the Protestant side and heard about their fallen leaders then stopped by the Peace Wall where they explained it's purpose and we were given pens to write on the wall. We then toured the catholic area and heard about their fallen leaders. All in all this was a very good overview of the troubles well presented. The cab drivers are both Protestant and Catholic and each was given a turn to talk about their history. We ate on the bus as we headed to the Giants Causeway. Our very capable guide, Richard, kept us entertained with the scientific and folklore versions of how it got there. We had plenty of time to hike around and over the volcanic rocks which are truly unusual. We made our way to the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge which I did not cross but the rest of our party did and were enthusiastic about it. The area has some very pleasant trails and a very small gift shop/snack bar for those who stay grounded. Our trip back to Dublin went very well. There is an option on this tour to visit the Titanic Museum instead of the Black Taxi portion but none of our party did that. Richard was a lively and amusing guide which helped a lot with the driving portions of the tour. I highly recommend this tour for those who want to hear about the troubles from people on both sides who lived through it.

Tour was awesome!! Our guide Richard was fun and very knowledgeable as was our driver Jack. Loved the political tour of Belfast. Giant and #39;s Causeway was unique and gorgeous! The Antrim coast is just beautiful. Carrick-a-rede bridge was scary but very cool. The view made it worth it.
