Overview

Our Giants Causeway day tour transports you to the northernmost point of Ireland. Travel through picturesque locations as we drive along Ireland’s coastline to one of Ireland’s 7 Wonders. Along the way you will see the most breathtaking sights and scenery that Northern Ireland has to offer. From the moment you get on our bus, you will experience an amazing part of Ireland, learning about her history and seeing some of the most dramatic coastline in Ireland.

The Giants Causeway is Ireland’s first World Heritage site. Breathe in the fresh northern air at the causeway and explore the many different shapes and rock formations that are surrounded in mystery and mythology. You decide whether the rocks have been formed through volcanic activity or legendary giants.

Can you draw up the courage of a lion to cross the famous ‘Carrick-a-Rede’ rope bridge (price included!) or maybe a leisurely stroll along the beautiful sweeping beach looking out on Whitepark Bay and Portbradden is more your idea of heaven? The North coast of County Antrim is shrouded in history and mythology and on your one day tour to the Giants Causeway with us you can experience it all.

We will arrive at the renowned “Carrick-a-Rede” rope bridge and we take a leisurely 20 minute walk along the winding coastal path to take up our position and prepare to cross over this historical rope bridge. The bridge is run by the National Trust and as part of our support for this organisation, we include the price of crossing the bridge in our tour. Take your turn crossing the bridge and try not to look down! As you cross over to the island there are amazing views looking out over the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland and Rathlin Island. You may get to see some of the coastal wildlife on the way as you build up your courage to cross the rope bridge! Remember, once you’ve crossed over, the only way back is to cross the rope bridge again.

Giants Causeway and Belfast - a must to do

Giants Causeway and Belfast – a must to do

What an amazing day! We were picked up on time from Dublin by our guide Mick and bus driver Cornelious. We were entertained the whe way with history and interesting landmarks. The rope bridge at Carrik-a-rede was great and the scenery was breathtaking. A lovely lunch at the Fullerton Arms followed by the Giants Causeway. We went on to Belfast and did the black taxi ride with Michael who explained the background of the troubles in Belfast from a hostorical and more recent perspective. It is well worth taking the time for this taxi ride to get an appreciation of the current sensitivities. A great day all round would highly recommend this trip.
The guys who took us really added to the day.

What a lovely lady Sandra!! She was our driver/guide in the day trip to Northern Ireland. Lots of informations and fun in that trip. Good job Sandra!!

Great day trip

Great day trip

Our tour guide Jim was an amazing tour guide, he was full of great Irish tales and factual stories. Although I do believe that there should have been a separate driver and a separate tour guide as they are two separate jobs that require full attention, Jim did great. The tour itself was amazing and was had the best views and scenery of our trip in Ireland. Would definitely recommend bringing snacks and water for in between meals!
