Experience Another Side of Ireland!
7:00am or 7:05am (Dependent on pick up location): Depart Dublin for your Giant’s Causeway and Belfast city day tour and travel by luxury coach passing through the Boyne Valley, home to the five-thousand-year-old Hill of Tara, the ancient capital of the High Kings of Ireland. Unique with day tour companies in Dublin, you have a dedicated tour guide who will tell you of the many stories and historical events which have occurred in this area of Meath over the centuries. For example, you will learn about the Battle of Boyne between King James (Catholic) and King William of Orange (Protestant – Dutch), a chapter in history which was hugely significant in the political, cultural and religious destinies of both Ireland and Britain. Crossing the border into the north of Ireland, there is no evidence which shows that you are entering another political state, but your guide will have some fascinating observations for you to see. On your Belfast tour, you will immediately observe how different it will look compared to Dublin. Belfast was the only city in Ireland which experienced the Industrial Revolution of Britain during the 19th century.
Titanic Centre or Black Taxi Tour
Learn about Ireland's Turbulent Past
Visit the Historic Belfast Titanic Quarter
9:30am Arrival in Belfast. You can choose to enjoy the world-famous Black Taxi Tour of Belfast where your local guide will talk you through the highs and lows of Belfast’s fascinating political history. Hear of its industrial roots and the past four decades of civil unrest. On your Northern Ireland day trip, you will visit and sign the Peace Line and join the list of world celebrities including Bill Clinton and the Dalai Lama who have signed their name to the wall. Walk along this huge wall which divides the two religious/national communities of east Belfast. The political murals, some of which are the most spectacular in the world, reflect a harrowing and tragic chapter in the history of Northern Ireland. The Troubles, a conflict between the two communities of Northern Ireland, cost the lives of thousands of people as the paramilitary element of the minority nationalist community fought with the British State and the paramilitary element of the Protestant Loyalist community. These two paramilitary groups are depicted in many of the murals reflecting the different communities’ allegiances. Your personal local guide will relate to you their personal and family experiences of life in Belfast. Some of the stories you quite simply won’t believe.
If you’d rather not take a black taxi tour, you can alternately choose to visit the Belfast Titanic quarter and the state of the art Titanic Visitor Experience.
Here you can experience the entire life and story of the Titanic, from her fateful maiden voyage to her eventful discovery on the seabed of the North Atlantic. Learn about the origins, construction, launch and history of the Titanic. The visitor centre expands over nine galleries and draws together special effects, dark rides and full-scale reconstructions.
The experience contains interactive features so you can truly explore the Titanic story in an insightful light. The journey will take you beyond the aftermath of the sinking to the later discovery of the ship. This tour will also take you to the present day with a tour of the live undersea exploration centre. Even if some of your family wish to visit one attraction and others wish to do the other, that’s perfectly alright as the whole group will regroup before we depart for the Giant’s Causeway. Depart Belfast at 11:50am.
Giant’s Causeway Tour
Explore UNESCO Site, the Giant’s Causeway
Visit Filming Location for Game of Thrones
Departing Belfast, we hit the road and travel deep into the heart of the six counties of Northern Ireland making our way to the north Irish coast.
We stop at the remarkably unique Dunluce Castle located on the edge of the north Atlantic coast and used as a filming location for Game of Thrones – an amazing photo opportunity.
Following a route known as the Antrim Coastal Drive we pass spectacular scenery including stony shores, densely wooded glens and the village of Bushmills; best associated with the popular drink uisce beatha (water of life) or whiskey.
We’ll arrive at The Giant’s Causeway at 1:20pm. This Unesco World Heritage-listed site was created more than 60 million years ago after a series of volcanic eruptions. The Causeway is best known for its distinctive rock formations that span nearly 18 miles (29 kms) of coastline and once we arrive you can stroll along this spectacular site and see formations such as the Wishing Chair, the Giant’s Boot and Organ.
During your two hour stay here you can enjoy lunch with a choice of providers on site and learn about the legend of Finn MacCool, said to be the creator of the Causeway.
Carrick A Rede Rope Bridge
Dare to cross this 100 ft high rope bridge
At 3:25pm, we continue our day trip to the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge close to Ballintoy, arriving at 3:40pm. This absolutely fabulous attraction is a must when visiting the North Coast. You have the opportunity to walk over this world-famous salmon fishermen’s rope bridge which traverses a 30 metre deep and 20-metre wide chasm – that is if you’re brave enough! Remember that all of these attractions are included in your ticket.
Now sit back and enjoy the relaxing drive back to Dublin, stopping off just after Belfast for a 20 minutes rest stop before arriving back to Dublin at 8:30pm.
