EXPERIENCE THE RUGGED NORTH!
Explore the world famous Giant’s Causeway and Antrim Coast on our Giant’s Causeway Tour from Belfast. Unlike other tour operators, we travel the opposite way to take you straight to the Giant’s Causeway site before most of the other coach tours arrive.
This way you will see the UNESCO listed Giant’s Causeway first, free from the crowds and queues. We still see all the other sites including the Carrick-a-Rede Rope bridge, Bushmills Whiskey Distillery, Dunluce Castle and more. Our full day Giant’s Causeway tour from Belfast remains our flagship daily full day tour. Unlike other tour companies, we operate all year round!
We have years of experience in showing you one of the most beautiful parts of planet Earth in our modern, luxury coaches. Every tour is guided by a fully qualified and passionate guide who will ensure that you are enriched and engaged by your visit.
Climb the Ancient Rocks
Discover Local Folklore
Our first stop is the Giant’s Causeway, commonly called “the 8th wonder of the world”, the Giant’s Causeway is the only world heritage site in Ireland. During our stop here you can spend time climbing over the ancient stones, snapping photos and reflecting on the myths and legends of this very unique area.
Bushmills Whiskey Distillery Visitor Centre & Dunluce Castle
Visit Visitor's Centre & Gift Shop
Photo Stop at Dunluce Castle
Our next stop of the day is at Bushmills Whiskey Distillery visitors centre and gift shop. Bushmills Whiskey Distillery has been creating beautiful ‘water of life’ since 1608, making this the oldest working distillery in Ireland! Visit this place where family and friends have worked together for generations with the philosophy that handcrafting small batches is the way to create beautifully smooth whiskey. Take the opportunity to purchase some of this famed triple distilled whiskey in the gift shop and wander around the visitor’s centre for an insight into this fascinating distillery.
We then make our way to Dunluce Castle for a photo opportunity. This now ruined medieval castle sits perched on the edge of a basalt cliff and is one of the most picturesque castles anywhere in Ireland.
Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge
Cross the Bridge if You Dare!
After lunch, we visit the amazing Carrick a Rede rope bridge which spans a chasm over 99ft in height. The lovely coastal path provides a spectacular walk with stunning sea views. Premium ticket holders can cross the bridge and take a look over the edge if they dare! You can opt to buy a bridge ticket on the day, or wander the area, taking in the fresh sea breeze and some of the best cliff-top views in Europe!
Antrim Coast Road & Carnlough Village
Visit a Local Village
Picturesque Cliff Drive
The Antrim Coast Road is widely agreed to be one of the finest stretches of road anywhere in the world. The road hugs the coastline giving incredible seaside views, passing unspoilt beaches and sheltering under rugged cliffs. You may even see Scotland on a good day!
Our second to last stop of the day takes us into the picturesque fishing village of Carnlough for a quick comfort break. The village stop is a fitting end to your trip as you take in the quaint harbour used by pleasure boats and small fishing vessels in an area rich for both sea and freshwater angling.
Ireland´s Best Preserved Medieval Structure
antastic Photo Opportunity
Our last stop is at Carrickfergus Castle, situated on the northern shore of Belfast Lough. This Norman Castle, which dates back to 1177, was besieged in turn by the Scots, Irish, English and French for centuries. It remains one of the best preserved medieval structures in Ireland and presents a great opportunity for photographs.
All that then remains to be done is to sit back and relax on the comfortable journey back to Belfast in one of our luxury coaches. This really is a must take tour, and with the combination of our luxury coaches, experienced, friendly tour guides, and wonderful attractions, you would be mad to miss it!
It was great to see some more of Northern Ireland - I especially enjoyed the coastal route on the way back to Belfast - quite stunning. Paul, our guide and driver, was a jolly soul and provided useful info and all many of yarns to keep us entertained on our journey. Nice to have some traditional music accompanying the ride up. If you're in Belfast for a long weekend or more do go!
Our guide was Galvin, lovely guy, very helpfull and told us many interesting histories. The Carrick Bridge and Giants Causeway are on my top 10 most beautiful landscape in the World, it's breathtaking.
We went on the Rope bridge and Giants Causeway tour Monday February 26th, 2018. I’m only using the date so hopefully the driver and information guide get the credit they deserve. It goes without saying that this scenic tour will be one of the most beautiful things you see on your trip to Ireland, but they friendliness and informative nature of the staff is world class. They really made it a memorable day and I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see norther Ireland’s beauty, and learn some history and culture at the same time.
