Day 1: Dublin - Belfast city (overnight Belfast) Choose from one of two central Dublin collection locations and you'll be on your way. Your first stop this morning is at Monasterboice, a monastic settlement dating back to 501 AD. This ancient monastery is home to the best-preserved and most intricately carved Celtic crosses in Ireland. A fully intact stone round tower also keeps watch over the horizon for marauding Vikings.  By late morning you'll arrive in Belfast. Discover why Lonely Planet regards Northern Ireland's capital as one of the top 10 'must-visit' cities on Earth. Your driver will show you highlights including City Hall, Queen's University, Albert's Clock, Botanic Gardens, and much more.  With plenty of time at leisure to explore the city, the political “Black Taxi” tour (optional) is strongly recommended to view the Peace Wall and infamous political murals. The drivers are locals and can explain what life was like in Belfast during the conflict of 1969-1998. This evening you'll stay downtown, in a most lively area with great pubs and restaurants catering to all tastes and budgets. Live music venues are plentiful, and Belfast is well known for its great nightlife. Day 2: Belfast - Giants Causeway - Letterkenny A glorious touring day cruising the Beautiful North Coast. You will initially visit the Dark Hedges, famed by Game of Thrones. Then it's the jackpot visit of the day - you will trace the footprints of Celtic Giants, and walk the Giant's Causeway. A UNESCO world heritage site, and the proud location of an estimated 60,000 hexagonal columns of basalt rock formed by cataclysmic violent volcanic eruptions a long long time ago. Your guide will wax lyrical about how the giant warrior-hero (Fionn McCool). You'll continue to the nearby city of Derry where you'll spend the afternoon. There will be plenty of time at leisure after an excellent in-depth walking tour of Derry's walls with a local guide. Learn why the city is officially known as Londonderry and the story of the long bloody siege here in 1689. Your guide will take you down to the well-known Bogside district, the scene of the Bloody Sunday massacre in 1972, and the inspiration for U2's classic anthem 'Sunday, Bloody Sunday'. Just across the border lie the hills of Donegal. You'll stay overnight in the town of Letterkenny for a flavor of rural Ireland. Day 3: Letterkenny- Sligo - Galway - Dublin After breakfast this morning, you'll head down a portion of the west coast's Wild Atlantic Way in the Republic of Ireland. Your journey takes you through the poetic heartland of Co. Sligo, W.B. Yeats country. Visit the final resting place of the Nobel laureate in Drumcliff Abbey, and admire the beautiful Benbulben mountain referenced in many of his poems.

Your final stop before returning to Dublin is Galway where you have free time to explore.

What people are saying about County Donegal

Easy signup. Bus was there early. Staff was friendly and helpful. Driver was great - navigated the roads expertly. He was also friendly and helpful. Cliffs were stunning. The visitors center was well done. Good trip when you just want a half day to see the Cliffs.

Perfect afternoon out for myself and my 5 year old. Driver was very kind and skilled. Cliffs were stunning and the time exploring was perfect for us. Such a central pick up and return also!

Excellent shortest trip to cover Cliff of Moher. We boarded the bus at 12pm, reached back Galway at 5 ish. And able to catch last train to Dublin at 7.20pm.

It was a very nice experience. We had time to walk around and to buy something fast to eat and some souvenirs.

Really nice trip. Our driver was very helpful in talking about points of interest on this tour.
