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.

It was a wonderful day trip from Dublin. The time spent in Belfast was so informative and at the same time very sad. The black cab fellas really made the talk personal and yet objective. It was a very learning experience. The Giant's Causeway was beautiful until I fell off the rock path and landed on a pile of rocks. Can you say ouch. My left arm and back are still very sore. I highly recommend this tour because it's both educational with the added bonus of nature's beauty.

Really enjoyed this tour with Wild River Tours. JP, our guide, and Jack, our driver, made the day fun as well as very interesting. We went to the Titanic Experience first, then the Giants Causeway and the Carrick A Rede Rope Bridge. Had plenty of time at each stop to be able to explore and take a lot of pictures. Highly recommend this tour.

I had a great time! Our driver and tour guide, Derek and Peter, were very professional and friendly. It was a long day but definitely worth the money. The black cab tour in Belfast was informative and educational and the Giant's Causeway was just amazing. I'd highly recommend this tour to everyone!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

This tour was absolutely amazing! Our tour guide was informative and extremely passionate about the history of Ireland. We make several stops on our way up to Northern Ireland, having the opportunity to see many different areas. I also loved that we had the option to either go to the Titanic Museum or take a Black Taxi tour in Belfast. We did the Black Taxi tour and I have to say, it was incredible! We learned so much from that tour and loved the authenticity of our tour guides. Northern Ireland is absolutely beautiful! Even though the tour is an all day thing, it is worth it. I would absolutely recommend this tour and would probably go on it again the next time I'm in Ireland.

As a day trip from Dublin, this tour was very affordable and well worth it. Our tour guide Yoan from Wild Rover Tours was very personable and kept the bus entertained during the drive. He also was very informative about all of the places we visited. On this trip you spend several hours on the bus, but the trip is broken up into several segments, so it is manageable.

In Belfast, you get a choice between the Black Cab Tour or the Titanic Museum -- the vast majority of people chose the Black Cab Tour, which is what I also did. This 40 minute tour provides an up close and honest tour of the conflicts between the Protestants and Catholics within Belfast, the true reasonings behind the troubles, and an optimistic view of the current situation. The murals and the wall were very moving to see in person, and I highly recommend it. You get dropped back off at the Titanic Museum, so you still have an opportunity to see the interesting exterior of the museum as well as its gift shop.

After a beautiful drive along the coast, your next stop is the Giants Causeway. There is plenty of time here to climb over all the basalt columns that make up the natural wonder, and its the highlight of the day. Afterwards, make sure you opt for the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, as it is a unique experience to cross the rope bridge and see some excellent coastal views. It's not a scary crossing at all, but there tends to be a bit of a wait to cross, so try not to dawdle too long.

From there, it's a long and exhausting drive back to Dublin, but after all the sights you've experienced throughout the day, it's a good time to take a nap and relax, knowing you had a memorable day!
