Itinerary

6:30am - Depart from the Molly Malone Statue on Suffolk St Dublin 2
Meet your fellow passengers and your guide for the Giants Causeway day tour. We will make our way north out of Dublin city and head for Belfast. We then take the scenic coast road from Larne.  We see the famous Causeway coastal road for the first time. This drive can be thought of as Ireland’s great ocean road. It is called the ‘Glens of Antrim’ road and passes through quaint villages on the way.

10:30am - Arrive at the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge
We will arrive at the renowned Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and walk the coastal path to reach the bridge. Prepare to cross over this historical walkway. The rope bridge is run by the National Trust.  We include the price of the bridge in our tour. As you cross over to the island there are views of Mull of Kintyre in Scotland and Rathlin Island. It is a 20 minute walk from the car park to the rope bridge.  You may get to see some of the coastal wildlife on the way.  Build up your courage for the leap of faith to cross the rope bridge! Do not worry, the rope bridge is well maintained!

12:00pm - Lunch and the Giants Causeway
We will go to a local cafe or pub for lunch before we make our way to the Giants Causeway. When you arrive at the Giants Causeway we recommend walking the cliff tops.

We will hop on the bus again at approximately 3:00pm for our trip to the great city of Belfast. We will be driving in a circular route that will take in views of picturesque Dunluce Castle.  We will pass by the village of Bushmills, home of Bushmills Whiskey.

4:00pm - Belfast City
Spend an hour walking & sightseeing around Belfast city before departing for Dublin. Visit the main shopping district, the sprawling Belfast City Hall and unique pubs.

7:45pm - Arrive back in Dublin

Giant’s Causeway tour

Our guide, Leo, really made this trip for us. He was extremely knowledgable and, in my opinion played the best music. We took his advice and did the Black Cab Tour in Belfast and thoroughly enjoyed learning the conflicted history of this city. The Causeway and the other sites were wonderful, as well. I highly recommend making the trip up to Northern Ireland, if possible. This was our fourth bus tour with this company and, by far, this was our favorite. Thank you for the wonderful trip, Leo!

Giants Causeway Tour / Irish Day Tours

It was a really good tour and you could see a lot of Ireland in one day. I would recommend this tour especially for travelers, who haven’t much time to visit all the places for a few days. The bus driver was amazing. He told us a lot of story and also some jokes:D Moreover he did with us a quiz to make the ride a little bit more interesting. To come to a end, I can absolutely recommend this tour with “Irish day tours”:)

Great tour to Giant’s Causeway

My friend and I went on the Giants Causeway tour, and it did not disappoint. Our guide shared with us little bits of history about the place while interjecting them with folk legends, which definitely prevented things from being too dry. The sights were stunning too – the Dark Hedges (really cool especially if you’re a Game of Thrones fan), Carrick-a-Rede bridge and Giants Causeway were definitely a highlight. Belfast was a little underwhelming for me, but that might be due to the fact that we went on a Sunday, and most shops there were closed. Overall a must-do day trip if you’re in Dublin!

Giant’s Causeway is well worth the time

The trip to Giants Causeway was full of stunning sights and stories. The trip was well-paced and included other impressive sights along the way. The guide was very competent and helpful in customizing elements for all. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Day trip to Northern Ireland, Giant’s Causeway.

Loved this trip. Everything went according to the website’s description. We had a wonderful guide, Jennifer, who gave us history lessons along the way as well as playing Irish music. We went to the GiantsCauseway, and a few other stops. We had plenty of time to explore all locations. Thanks for a wonderful day.
