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 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.

this trip was great! the sites were interesting and I like the little mixture of nature giant's causeway and culture the tour of the troubles in Belfast. It's always great if you can get a mixture of both in a day. The bus ride was very comfortable, it wasn't full so you had a lot of room and the scheduling was perfect. Our guide told us when to get things so that we can plan a picnic or plan for the next bathroom break. But besides the sites that we saw the bus travels itself was quite interesting because our guide Peter talked about everything that has to do Ireland, the Irish culture people, and the language. Including how they use turf, irish sports, slang words, where in town to find live music etc etc...It was very informative and very interesting! I highly recommend this tour! We went there for a cousin's wedding, and I even drove to Ring of Kerry for 3 days but the favorit thing we did in Ireland was this tour!

We had a great tour to Belfast from Dublin! The Tour Guide and Bus driver were great. We particularly loved the Black Taxi Cab tour in Belfast, what an eye opener! The Giants Causeway was cool, and the Carrick Bridge amazing. Wish the weather was better, but thats how it is in Ireland. Overall, highly recommend Wild Rover Tours and it was easy booking through Viator, would definitely book another trip.

Great tour!!!! The tour guide was thoughtful, informative, funny, everything you could ask for!!! It was worth every penny, and a fabulous way to see so much in one day! Motor coach was comfortable, we were able to leave our belongings in our seat when we got out of the bus. Tour guide spoke all along the drive whenever there was anything significant to point out. He gave recommendations for lunch, and was very clear about where to go and what time and where to return to the bus. Belfast black taxi tour was fabulous, and the scenery at the Giants Causeway and the Rope Bridge was breathtaking. Opportunity for short hikes at both! My favorite day in Ireland!!

Fabulous. Viator agent helped us via phone to get our name on manifest and on board without a printed voucher, which they faxed to our hotel that didn't have an operating fax machine.
Thank yu so much for the added help. This was our most favorite tour in our two week stay!

We had a great time on this tour with Richard and Derek. The tour guide was very informative and pointed out lots of sites along the way particularly Game of Thrones locations that weren't officially part of the tour. We had just the right amount of time in each location. The Belfast Taxi tour was amazing, I was astounded by the wall and the memorials to folks who were armed militia during that time. We will go back again. .

Well this must have been the only country I have traveled to where I give everyone in the country a 10/10. So friendly and clean. Just loved it. I guess the highlight was taking a day tour. If I had known they were so great I would have booked more such tours.

This was a first-rate large bus tour. Everything was as advertised and consistent with other reviews - bring snacks or food although you will have chances to buy. Don't worry about restroom breaks :- - there are plenty. Our driver Sarah and guide Yoan were great - a lot of fun and informative as well. We took the Black Cab tour of Belfast and I can't recommend it highly enough. It is as objectively done as possible and it's a bit like watching living history - a sobering experience for sure. Then there was the Giants Causeway and the rope bridge. Great scenery and you could get as much or as little exercise as you wanted. Back to Dublin on time. A definite must-do tour.

Great Tour. Everything was organized and very punctual without feeling rushed. The views around the rope bridge were stunning and the Giant's Causeway was a beautiful area although a bit busy the day we were there. The highlight for me was the taxi tour through Belfast. The drivers all live in the area and have been touched personally by the Troubles and are able to convey some of the issues from their personal experience.
