Overview

Discover the magic of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Giant’s Causeway on a full-day trip from Belfast. Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, travel by luxury coach through Northern Ireland’s spectacular countryside, and visit attractions like Carrickfergus Castle and the Old Bushmills distillery. Summon your courage to cross the nail-biting Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. Then arrive at the Giant’s Causeway to climb the fascinating stones and admire the scenic splendor of the surroundings.
  • 8-hour tour to Giant’s Causeway from Belfast
  • See Carrickfergus Castle, a Norman fortress
  • Stop at the Old Bushmills Distillery, where one of the Ireland’s famous whiskies is produced
  • Climb the stones at Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Cross the 65-foot-long (20-meter-long) Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge
  • Admire the ruins of Dunluce Castle on your way back to Belfast
  • Hear about the history of the area as you go
Emerge early and depart from central Belfast in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Giant’s Causeway. Stop first at Carrickfergus Castle, an impressive Norman fortress considered one of Northern Ireland’s best preserved. Hear of the structure’s intriguing history before travelling along the scenic Antrim Coast to the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. 
On arrival, conquer your fears and walk tentatively across the rickety bridge suspended 100 feet (30 meters) above the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean (own expense). If you’d prefer to keep your adrenaline levels stable, opt for a bracing walk along the coast instead. 
Continue onto the Old Bushmills Distillery, home to one of Ireland’s favorite brands of the amber nectar. Revitalize with lunch at the distilleries bar (own expense), and purchase special whiskey-related souvenirs from the gift shop (own expense). 
Then, begin the journey to your final stop, the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway. Listen to legends surrounding the formation of the mystifying natural wonder that consists of hexagonal rock columns that fit together like a puzzle. Climb the coastal stones, listen to intriguing myths, and feel the invigorating ocean breeze as you spend some leisurely time at the natural landmark.  
Relax during the scenic journey back to Belfast, which passes the medieval Dunluce Castle, and bid your guide farewell in central Belfast.

We had the best day ever. Patrick was an awesome tour guide and he kept the whole trip so informative. The rope at Carrick-a-Rede was a little scary but we were brave and faced it and the Giant's Causeway was just something out of this world. It was so beautiful. This trip is a definite must do.

It was a great day. We visited several great places, crossed the bridge and then had a walk across Giant's Causeway. The trip was well organised, very nice timing. Patrick - the driver or rather the tour guide was great, he told us lots of great stories about the Northern Ireland and he was a heart of that trip. Thank you Patrick, it was great day!

This is a great day out from Belfast. Patrick, the tour guide, doesn't stop all day. Its an amazing day from the beginning, going along the coast and across the rope bridge to the distillery and the causeway. Even the lunch was well drilled. Only thing that I would have liked is more time at the distillery but appreciate the day was long enough as it was. A must do tour.

My 1st visit here though I'd heard about it from my parents but so much different to see in reality. Rocks can be a bit slippery when wet and there's a good walk from were the bus drops you to the rocks but you can get a ride from the gift shop down for a small fee. The day we went was beautifully clear and the water just lashed against the rocks creating such peace in spite of many people bustling around. Makes for great photographs. Super trip and worth booking tour vs driving yourself. We learned so much from our bus driver/tour guide which made everything so much more interesting.

Stuart was an excellent driver and guide. The stops at the 2 castles and Old Bushmills Distilleries were probably not necessary other than for toilet stops. Giants Causeway was amazing.

Make sure you know who your actual tour company is. It's not viator..they are just a reservation agent. Instructions said to go to a certain corner. Would be nice if there was a sign there so you knew you were in the right place. We got a bit nervous when the designated time arrived and our bus had not arrived...because they also pickup at some hotels and can run behind schedule. The area where all the tours in Belfast meet by europa hotel is a congested mess. 2 mc comb buses arrived..one driver wanted us to switch to his tour rather than in we booked...don't know why..was confusing..we stuck with our booked tour. Slightly late start..left town then returned to puck up a single person who must have missed the bus. Transmission was messed up on bus and had some temp control issues in bus..extremely cold or hot. Driver was informative and did a good job..but during part of the countryside ride it would have been nice to just hear some Irish tunes and relax.

This was my first bus trip for sightseeing. They stuff many activities into one day and you see a good many things but I would have liked to had more time at the Giant's Causeway and the Buschmills Distillery. However, they are only given so much time at each location. It is a good trip if you want a taste of the coast and some history. Unfortunately I could not hear everything the driver was telling us because of some inconsiderate passengers who kept talking.

The trip is quite efficient. The guide is quite familiar about all the sites and how to be efficient. Just be punctual at each spot.
