Just a 2 hour drive out of Dublin is another great city that sits politically in a different country. The great city of Belfast is the capital of northern Ireland and this 1 day tour to Belfast will not only take you on a tour of the city but you will also see many other gems of the north including historical and natural treasures. Our guides are full of knowledge about northern Ireland from its great mountains to St Patrick and of course the troubles that have scared this part of the country over many decades. The guides will tell you stories of old and interesting tales. If you’re lucky they might even sing you a few songs along the way. So just sit back on this amazing day tour a take it all in! After a quick coffee break before we hit the border we will head directly for Belfast city to begin our tour of the city.
Your guide will take you first around west Belfast, the home of the famous ( or infamous ) Peace Wall. You will also visit the Republican museum before you’re dropped in the city centre for some free time and lunch ( not included ). You might need to change some money to Stirling pounds as you are now in the United Kingdom! After exploring the city centre we depart on the second half of the city tour to East Belfast and the birthplace of RMS Titanic. Even though you already seen Belfast city, your northern adventure has only just begin as we head out of the city to the town of Downpatrick and the resting place of Ireland’s most famous saint.
Here you will visit the Saint Patrick Centre where you will learn all about the patron saint of Ireland and after visit Down cathedral where you will find the grave of Saint Patrick himself. Then on to the coastal village of Dundrum and visit it’s Norman castle. Climb to the top of the fortified walls and see the amazing views for miles. We then move on to the highest mountain range in northern Ireland, The Mourne Mountains where you will make a photo stop at an area of outstanding beauty at Spelga Dam. Ask your guide to show you gravity hill and watch your tour bus ‘roll up’ a hill all by itself!! From there you will travel down the coast line and make another stop at Ross’ Monument which is dedicated to Major General Robert Ross, who burned down the White House in retaliation for the Americans burning York ( now modern Toronto ) in 1813 ! Sadly all great adventures must come to an end. However the memories will last a lifetime so sit back while your guide plays some traditional music and enjoy reminiscing about your day tour to the north as you make your way back to Dublin.
Really great tour and history of Ireland
This tour, led by Wayne, was an awesome history lesson in itself not to mention the awesome scenery. Our tour guide was very good, knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and entertaining. Trip advisor July 2014
Educational and fun
I have done the Belfast Tour with Mac and the Boyne Valley Tour with Sarah. They were great tours – the guides knew their history so I really learned a lot. They were also very open to questions. Trip advisor July 2014
Belfast with Bud
This trip was fantastic! Our tour guide was Bud and he really made the day an amazing one. He provided loads of details on both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Trip advisor June 2014
I did 3 tours this week: Cork, Belfast and Cliffs of Moher. The tour guides were funny and knew their stuff. Trip advisor June 2014
