What You Can Expect

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 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 return ride back to central Dublin.

This trip was definately worth the time especially the black cab ride in Belfast. You get a first hand review of the unrest in that area. Definately folloow the bus drivers suggestion of a box lunch at the first comfort stop. There were not many places to get a bite. The Giant's Causeway is an amazing natural wonder and the rope bridge exciting. Be prepared to walk.

This was a fantastic day trip to take from Dublin. We had a great host and bus driver, a raw, unforgettable learning experience in Belfast, and breathtaking scenery at Giant's Causeway. I am so glad we booked this outing!

Wonderful day trip. Me and my daughter took the taxi tour in Belfast and learned a lot we didn't know about the history of the area. The Giant's causeway was a great trip. The tour guide was very informative and friendly. The only thing is make sure you can do a decent bit of walking. The tour is a bit crunched for times at certain stops. But definitely worth it.

This was an amazing tour of Northern Ireland. The tour guide was funny and well informed. We took the Black cab tour of Belfast which was amazing. Learned a lot of about the history and still how the city is today. Rope bridge was also a lot of fun and great stop along the way.

Last but not least the Giant's causeway is amazing. Definitely a site worth seeing! Would take another tour from this company again.

Excellent. Everything went exactly as described. Buses were comfortable and had Wi-Fi, which is especially important for the last stretch. From departure to return, took 13 hours. 7am-8pm. One thing to note is that Dunluce castle is just a photo opportunity, and you only stop for gas station food.
