Absorb the spectacular scenery of Northern Ireland's magical landscapes on a full-day rail tour from Dublin. Enjoy the romance of travelling by train as you marvel at panoramic vistas of the Northern Irish countryside and relish a light breakfast onboard. On arrival in Belfast, ride a comfortable coach to the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway, famed for its mystifying basalt columns, and capture photographs outside Dunluce Castle. Summon your courage to cross the Carrick-a-Rede Rope bridge before returning to your Dublin hotel by coach and train.
I highly recommend this tour. It is a beautiful drive from Dublin and the tour guide was great. Be sure not to miss the sheep herding demonstration.
So much fun! Sean, Patrick, and Rodney were absolute dreams to work with. Our train was delayed and Rodney was able to make up for it by stopping at some incredible sights along the way to meet up with our tour down the path. Be sure to walk all the paths and see all of the local draws!
This tour was fantastic and would recommend for sure! It's a long day but well worth it!
We had only a limited time to spend in Dublin and wished we could visit the Giant's Causeway. It seemed not to be practical. Then, we found his great one day tour by rail and bus up to Belfast, and several of the most popular sights. It was perfect! Our guide was easy to find at the rail station, remained helpful throughout the day, and the trip north was smooth and fast. At Belfast we transferred to the tour bus with Troy in the driver's seat. He was a wonderful mix of humor and history and really got us into a great mood, in spite of the rainy weather. Sometimes his patter was a bit fast and the accent hard to understand, but he was fun. The stops were well planned, if a bit rushed, but with this size group, they have to stay on schedule. It did give us a chance to walk out to the Carrick bridge, adequate time at the Giant's Causeway and a quick stop at Bushmills. The pub stop at lunch was delightful and cozy, with the added plus of some Game of Thrones memorabilia available. The tour around Belfast when we returned was quick, but gave us a sample to see if we would like to return here. Everything ran according to the plan we were given and we very much enjoyed the day.
This was a great way to get some sights in! The guides were fantastic!
This was a great trip. We took the train thinking it would be another great way to see Ireland. Really didn't see much from the train to warrant the additional expense. Save your money and take the bus tour from Dublin. Tour guides were knowledgeable and fun to chat with. Our favorite part was the Carricke rope bridge - fantastic vews of the coast. Giant's Causeway is just Ok.
Long day but amazing scenery and the driver was rather comical and entertaining. Train trip up was nice, the stop from lunch was pleasant as were the couple of stops before and after. Loved Giant's Causeway and the swinging bridge. Lots of tourists as it was the perfect day weather wise but not annoying. Lunch at Bushmills Whiskey distillery was nice as you were able to visit the store afterwards, you paid for your own lunch. Great value for money and would highly recommend.

This was a very good tour. Everyone was very helpful with those of us with limited mobility. I was very glad for the shuttle out to the causeway. The facilities at the visitor cnter weren't great -- the better ones are inside and you have to pay extra to enter the center but that isn't the fault of the tour. I liked the O'Connel station better than the main train station. I really enjoyed the Northern Ireland perspective on the conflicts
My family and I had a wonderful time! The rope bridge was a great experience, but required a lot of stamina to climb up and down the steps to get there and back to the entrance. The Giant's Causeway was also fantastic. Our tour guys both the driver and our regular guide were highly entertaining and helpful. I would definitely recommend this trip to others.
This is a fantastic trip. The Antrim coast is gorgeous, and the guides very helpful and entertaining. At the carrick a rede bridge we were kind of rushed, which made it less fantastic than it could have been. The difficult part of that stop is not the rope bridge, it is the very steep steps to the rope bridge, which I did with my 84 year old Mother. Go Mom!. We were at a disadvantage because we sat in the back of the bus, so we lost about ten minutes of the stop waiting to get off the bus. You need to use both doors and have both guides collecting lunch orders and handing out tickets.
