Itinerary

8:00am - Departs from the Molly Malone Statue on Suffolk street
This Belfast day tour departs from the Molly Malone Statue on Suffolk Street. We have to stress that our tours leave on time so we highly recommend that you are at the meeting point ten minutes early.  Your guide will meet you, introduce himself and you’ll meet your travel companions for the journey. We’ll make our way out of the city heading north. Your driver will point out some interesting landmarks that you might visit on your return to Dublin such as the famous Croke Park Stadium. As you drive north your guide will give you an insight into Northern Ireland’s turbulent and complex history.
10:30am - Arrive in Belfast City
You arrive in Belfast City and head straight to the west of the city. You will visit the Shankhill road, a unionist stronghold and the Falls road which is a republican stronghold. This was a particular hot spot during the troubles with many riots, shootings and bombings by both sides. There was a wall erected to divide and protect the communities from each other and over the years this wall has got larger. The wall and surrounding buildings are decorated with murals depicting people and events that are important to the opposing communities. You will see a stark contrast in what is depicted in these murals. You will also visit the Republican museum (not open Sun & Mon) before we head to the Titanic Quarter.
12:00pm - Explore Belfast city center and have some lunch
We have between 1 1/2 – 2 hours here as free time to explore Belfast city centre and have lunch in one of the many pubs and restaurants (not included). Here are a few suggestion of things to do during this time:

- Fancy a pint? Then drop in to one of the city’s oldest and most interesting bars – the Crown Liquor Saloon.

- Visit Saint Anne’s cathedral, also known as Belfast cathedral.

- See Albert’s Memorial Clock known as the leaning tower of Belfast.

- Drop into one of Belfast’s main landmarks at the Belfast City Hall.

Highlights

BELFAST PEACE WALL

Belfast day tour , Peace wall

Peace Wall

The First Peace walls were built in 1969 dividing the republican and the unionist communities. They were intended to be a temporary solution lasting only 6 months but they became a permanent fixture getting higher and longer as time went on. There are now 48 peace walls in Northern Ireland with the majority in Belfast. The peace wall we visit is between Falls Road and Shankhill Road. Both these areas are infamous as volatile points during the troubles. The walls are covered in murals – depicting the struggle as seen by two opposing sides. It is a fascinating visit and an introduction to Belfast’s troubled history.

 Belfast Day Tour

Today we went to Belfast with Alec. This was a great tour, fabulous guide, clean bus and quality tour. Alec made the trip exciting and interesting with his wealth of knowledge about Ireland. He was patient with the children on the tour (including mine) and he was also a great driver. Alec even gave us tips on when picture opportunities were coming. We are frequent travelers and a good tour guide is everything! The very well maintained bus shows pride of business and goes a long way for my comfort :)

My daughter lost her phone on the bus today and the office jumped through hoops to find it for us. So amazing and kind of them!

I have already recommended this tour company in our hotel tonight and hopefully we will have the opportunity to see them again before heading back to Texas.

Amazing day tour through Dublin into Belfast

We booked the one day tour to Belfast. I was not sure what we were getting into at first, thought it would be just visiting the city. To my delight, it was much more than that – we got to see several places all the way through Dublin into Northern Ireland, incluing incredible landscapes and views up there in the mountains. Our guide James was amazing and explainned the history behind each place we visited, and also other interisting facts along the road.
Very well organized and I highly recomend it.
