Top attractions in Carrickfergus
What people are saying about Carrickfergus
Apart from struggling initially to locate exactly where my coach would be amongst the scrum in Glengall street, and a rude passenger next to me who wanted to sit in one and a half seats (he changed coaches at Carrickfergus which was a relief) this was an excellent experience. Very well organised. I particularly like the way passengers have the choice of paying exactly nothing more if they bring a packed lunch and don’t want to go on the rope bridge or visit the visitor centre at the Giant’s Causeway. I did, and benefitted from the discount for those attractions and having an excellent meal at the lunch stop. The driver/guide was knowledgeable with a cheery, helpful, careful driver and the coach itself was very comfortable. Excellent value for money to reach these places which aren’t really possible to get to in one day on public transport. Definitely recommend.
Troy was an excellent guy to have on the trip to tell us about Belfast, he was insightful and good fun. The trip was all day starting from 9-7 and managed to see a lot more then expected. You do have to pay extra to cross the bridge and pay for lunch however that is stated in the details at time of booking so all good. The only negative to the trip was where we stopped for lunch, the food was awful and you were treated like sheep, herded into the pub with a maximum of 45 mins to sit eat and drink. That to me was the part that put a real downer on the trip. I would advise taking a pack lunch and consume while on the walk in the sun. You do stop of at the bridge and there is a National trust cafe selling the basics.
Our tour was brilliant and great value for money. The bus driver (Stevie) and tour guide (Rachel) were a fab team, friendly, knowledgeable and great craic. We saw so much but never felt rushed and we were given all the information we needed at each stop off. Rachel had an excellent knowledge of all things Game of Thrones and her knowledge of the area and its stories and myths made the whole journey a pleasure. I can't recommend this trip highly enough, a truly fantastic day!
We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Maura was very clear in explaining the local history and some of the folklore associated with stories incorporated into the Game of Thrones series. As I had no interest in the series, it was of no difference to my experience. The area is so beautiful. I loved having enough time to walk around the Giants Causeway. I will definitely be going back to explore more. This is a good way to get acquainted with what is there to see.
Excellent tour with Michael! We visited many beautiful towns on the way to the Giants Causeway, and stopped off in spots where GOT was filmed. We had a fabulous day- it was the highlight of our trip to Northern Ireland, and would recommend 100% to all!
