Full description
With your guide, take the Causeway Coastal Route to experience the global landmark, the Giant’s Causeway like never before.  From Belfast, journey in a luxury bus through the bustling seaside towns of Northern Ireland. Your first stop is Carnlough, a tiny traditional Irish fishing village, and an excellent stop to soak in the region’s atmosphere. The mythical impetus of this route will then propel you on to the Caves at Cushendun where you’ll have the option to take a guided walk to the caves if you’re curious enough. Indulge in your Game of Thrones fantasy by visiting The Dark Hedges, the ancient avenue of beech trees used as a filming location in the epic HBO series. Spend 30 minutes here before moving on to the Fullerton Arms in Ballintoy where you can refuel on a hearty lunch.  The Giant’s Causeway, the piece de resistance of the day, is next on your itinerary. Traverse the wonderfully wild and rugged coastal scenery along grass and gravel paths with your guide and see much more of the World Heritage Site than most people even know exists. Discover the quirky and interesting rock formations and sights that would otherwise be missed. Approach the stones and take in incredible clifftop views truly unique to the Causeway Coast and Northern Ireland. The 40,000 interlocking basalt columns you’ll reach are a testament to a major stage in the earth’s development.  Before heading back to Belfast you’ll go to Dunluce Castle, the breathtaking ruins of an ancient castle that was built circa 1500 by the MacQuillan family. While here, take plenty of snaps to remind you of your day. Finally, hop back onto your bus and you'll be safely back in Belfast around 6:00 PM.

Our guide Derek is a very funny guy which bring lots of fun and jokes during the trip and make you not feel boring while you're sitting in the coach on the road between the spots. He also talk about Irish history which give you a bit idea of Northern Ireland and the rest of Ireland. The view is amazing in Northern Ireland, there're lots of places where used in the Game of Throne, would strong recommend to visit。

Excellent time. We took the path over the roof of visitor centre and along the top cliff path. Then you get to go down the 100 steps and path to beach ( much easier than going up) Carpark £8 visitor centre £13.50 if your not a NT member. Free toilets at the hotel on left and in tunnel behind visitor centre. Visitor centre has a tea room and audio guide available, but there is a small pub there as well for a drink and in the hotel people were eating. Also another car park just down the road with a coffee van in it. Not sure if its free or not. We spent 2.5hrs here so allow plenty of time. Probably could do the lower path and causeway in an hour if pushed.

Would very much recommend. We booked this mainly because we thought it would save us the trouble of having to organise transport to the causeway and back but the whole experience was so much better than what we had imagined. Our driver, Patrick, was amazing and had lots of interesting facts about Northern Ireland and GoT. He dropped a few bad jokes along the way but they were actually alright. You get a chance to prebook some food so that when you get to the local pub it’s ready for you but you’re more than welcome to do your own thing - we just weren’t organised enough to bring our own sandwiches! Lots of photo ops throughout the day and beautiful coastal scenery. All in all a great day out - definitely a bargain for that price!
