Belfast and Giant's Causeway: 2-Day Guided Tour

1. Belfast and Giant's Causeway: 2-Day Guided Tour

On this 2-day tour from Dublin, you’ll travel to Northern Ireland, which has been experiencing a new dawn after the end of 30 years of political violence. Explore downtown Belfast as well as the glorious glens of Antrim. With its breathtaking scenery, welcoming local residents, unspoiled landscapes, and living history, Northern Ireland is sure to please. Day 1: Dublin to Belfast ADepart Dublin, heading north for the 2-hour drive to Belfast on the new Peace Highway. Your first stop will be St. Peters Cathedral in Drogheda, where you’ll find the fully preserved head of St. Oliver Plunkett. He was beheaded by the English in 1681 and his head now sits staring out from a glass box by the altar. Take a drive off the highway to visit the haunting ruins of Monasterboice. See the 10th-century round tower and learn how residents of the time took refuge from the Vikings. Admire some of the most beautiful Celtic crosses in Ireland, carved by hand by monks in the 9th century. When you arrive in Belfast you’ll have 2 hours of free time. You might consider an optional and highly recommended Black Taxi Tour of the Falls and Shankill Roads. Alternatively, use your free time for lunch and shopping in the city’s bustling downtown area. Depart the city center for a drive to the docks to visit Belfast's number 1 attraction: The Titanic Experience. Spend 2 hours on a tour of the all-new Titanic Belfast. Follow the story from the ship’s conception in Belfast in the early 1900s, through her construction and launch, to her infamous maiden voyage and catastrophic demise. Overnight in Belfast's historic downtown university quarter. Day 2: Belfast – Giant's Causeway – Dublin The tour departs Belfast on a drive through the rolling farmland of County Antrim to the north coast of Ulster. Your first stop will be a photo stop at the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, with views of Rathlin Island, before continuing along the coast. Next, visit the famous Giant's Causeway. Explore the site which features an estimated 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns that were formed during a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago. After at least 2 hours exploring the Giant’s Causeway, you’ll continue on to see the cliff-top ruins of Dunluce Castle, the ancestral home of the MacDonnell Clan. Benefit from paid entrance here and time for a comprehensive exploration. We'll also have time for a photo stop at amazing Dark Hedges - a tree-lined road that is said to be haunted and made world-famous by Game of Thrones. On the return to Dublin, you’ll have a short rest and relaxation stop with time for some refreshments. Arrive back in Dublin with a wealth of songs, stories, and memories of Belfast and the Giant’s Causeway.

Great Tour!

The first day was ok. Not particularly exciting. Don't do the Black Taxi Tour in Belfast, it's free to go to the City Hall. The Titanic Museum is quite good. It is definitely worth investing the €40 for the B&B. The hostel is a bit dirty. But the B&B was great! Very clean and good breakfast. In the evening, explore Belfast again yourself, it's a 15-minute walk into the city. The second day was absolutely great. The guides changed overnight and *T* was great. Explained everything great. Telling a lot about GoT we always had enough time and the points we approached were a dream. Be sure to buy tickets for the bridge from the driver. They are limited so strike immediately and not after the King's Way. We were back in Dublin promptly at 8pm and the bus was very good. We had wifi to send messages (no pictures). There was a little problem! The beginning time! There are two times on the ticket, which made me uncertain.

Unforgettable landscapes! Not to be missed if you are visiting Ireland!

Impeccably organized tour! The guide each time left us in front of the activities / attractions to visit leaving us adequate time to visit it! The guide has always remained on the bus, leaving us free during the visit. On the first day the main activities were the visit of Belfast and the Titanic museum both very popular. On the second day we visited the giant's causeway and crossed the carrick-a-rede bridge (at a cost of 8 € or 6sterline as not included in the tour) both unforgettable experiences! The only thing I regretted was that not speaking English well I didn't understand most of the explanations the guide gave us on the bus, but I was aware of it. In any case I recommend this tour, going back I would choose this tour again!

Great guides, great info and great places!

Belfast, Titanic and the Giant's Causeway are a must for any trip to Ireland. The contrast and history with a Black Taxi Tour about the turbulent history of Belfast is also a must! I stayed overnight in the hostel which was clean and comfortable. The whole island is so beautiful and the people, especially the guides we had (Paul and Ro) were just great - informative but also interesting and fun characters themselves. I'd happily do another bunch of Paddywagon Tours!!

Worth every penny!

Excellent! The black taxi tour was actually 15 Euro even though the published price was only 8.5 euro on the tour operators website. Despite this price mismatch, this tour is highly recommended.

Fascinating and beautiful.

Our driver, Tiernan, was an amazing wealth of information, as well as a great comedian. Highly recommend!
