Black Taxi Tour
On the way to Belfast we travel through the Boyne Valley, home to a passage tomb older than the pyramids. Your private driver / guide will tell you stories about the many historical events which occurred in this area of Meath over hundreds of years. One of the most famous is the battle of the Boyne which influenced the political and cultural history of Ireland for hundreds of years after.
Arriving in Belfast you will notice the difference between it and Dublin. Belfast was the only city in Ireland which experienced the Industrial Revolution of Britain during the 19th century.
At this point you have the option to take a tour or explore Belfast at your leisure.
Black Taxi Tour
If you want to understand more about the political history of this city there is no better way to do it than in a black taxi accompanied by a local driver. On a Black Taxi Tour of Belfast your local guide will bring you to both sides of the community and explain what Belfast was like during the ‘troubles’. They will explain the content of the murals on the Peace Wall and how people survived such a chaotic time. Please note that this Black Taxi Tour can also be done on foot if you prefer.
The Titanic Quarter and Maritime Mile is one of Europe’s largest urban waterfront regeneration projects. Built to be unsinkable, the fate of Titanic is well known. Explore the underwater theatre and recreated decks and cabins of the ill-fated White Star liner on the Titanic Experience Tour.
The Titanic Experience in Belfast's' Titanic Quarter includes access to the nine interpretive galleries, full-scale reproductions, and the opportunity to walk in the shoes of those who built, served, and took passage on the ill-fated liner. This interactive experience exploring the origins of the tragic and legendary ship along with its passengers and crew in the city where she was built, is not one to be missed.
If neither option appeals, feel free to spend this time exploring the city. Your personal guide can offer suggestions for brunch, shopping, museums or markets depending on your interests.
THE GIANT'S CAUSEWAY
Visit Game of Thrones Filming Location
Witness the Beauty of the UNESCO Site
One of the most popular stops on our private day tours to Northern Ireland from Dublin is also the most visited natural site in the north of the island, Giant’s Causeway. Volcanic activity tens of millions of years ago produced a unique field of flat-topped and ruggedly symmetrical stones lying between craggy peaks and the roiling sea. UNESCO has ranked Giant’s Causeway among its world heritage sites and many consider it one of the eight natural wonders of the world.
The spectacular rock formation is named after an Irish myth your driver will be happy to share with you on the way. Created more than 60 million years ago after a series of volcanic eruptions it is best known for its distinctive rock formations that span nearly 18 miles (29kms) of coastline.
On our way to the Giant’s Causeway we can stop to visit the unique Dunluce Castle located on the edge of the north Atlantic coast. This area may be recognised by Game of Thrones fans as it was a popular location for filming the series.
Dunluce Castle was built by the McQuillan family around 1500. It is located on the top of sheer-sided cliffs 100 feet above the ocean – the perfect location for one of the Great Houses of Westeros. The Castle’s dramatic history of violence, intrigue and rebellion is matched by the scandal and betrayal committed by the Greyjoys in Game of Thrones.
Carrick A Rede Rope Bridge
Cross the World Famous Bridge
Take in Atlantic Views
Note - Carrick A Rede Rope Bridge is currently Closed. However, the Coastal Path remains open.
Leaving the Causeway we continue our day to the Carrick a Rede rope bridge close to Ballintoy. This absolutely fabulous attraction is a must when visiting the north coast. You have the opportunity to cross this world famous rope bridge, that’s if you’re brave enough!
Oldest Working Distillery in Ireland
Established in 1608
About three miles from the Giant’s Causeway, Bushmills Whiskey Distillery has been creating ‘water of life’ since 1608, making this the oldest working distillery in Ireland!
Family and friends have worked together for generations at Bushmills, passing on their whiskey making knowledge. Here, the philosophy is that small, handcrafted batches are the best way to create beautifully smooth Irish 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.
Remember all of these attractions can be included in your private tour! If we have whet your appetite enough to consider booking a private tour of Northern Ireland, why not contact us today to discuss your needs. We would be delighted to help you make the most of your holiday/vacation in Ireland.
