What You Can Expect

Northern Ireland Day Trip from Dublin: Belfast Black Taxi Tour and Giant's Causeway

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.

I would highly recommend to anyone going to Ireland to go to Belfast and take the Black Taxi Tour. Our tour guide, Paul, was exceptional in his knowledge and passion for the history and present day circumstances in Belfast. We were fortunate to have booked our tour for July 12th, not knowing the significance of this date, but were rewarded by experiencing the parade commemorating the Battle of the Boyne with much celebration in the Protestant neighborhood and empty streets in the Catholic neighborhood. Having grown up with news reports from Belfast during 'The Troubles, this tour gave a reality to those events and gave hope that progress has been made over the years and hopefully will continue. Thank you, Paul for an awesome day! The Giants Causeway was well worth the visit to see such a geological phenomenon.

A very good day out - we had an excellent guide, Yoan, who was knowledeagble/entertaining/caring. The timing of the trips to various locations was well planned, including the coffee/toilet breaks. We had lunch at an excellent valued restaurant at the Giants Causeway as recommended by Yoan and the whole day was really enjoyable. Congratulations.

Loved this trip! The driver was knowledgeable and friendly. We had plenty of time at each of the sites. Belfast was so fascinating. I recommend the Black Taxi tour (but I didn and #39;t go on the Titanic option so maybe those people would recommend that).

The tour guide and driver would look more professional with some sort of a uniform.
They were excellent communicators.
