What you can expect
To break up the drive on the way to Belfast, we will stop at a service station so you can get some coffee or breakfast. Occasionally we will pick up a few more passengers from Belfast on the way as well.
You will get to experience the beautiful location of Giant's Causeway for around 1.5 - 2 hours. This must-see World Heritage Site is Northern Ireland's most popular visitor attraction, and for good reason. Magnificent seascape and of course the awe-inspiring hexagonal/polygonal stone columns that form the legendary Causeway itself, some of which reach 40 feet (12 meters) into the air. The Giant's Causeway was declared a World Heritage Site in 1986. Here you can have a sit down lunch if you prefer. The extra lunch stop time is added into the Causeway stop.
You then get on the coastal route and go through beautiful coastal towns like Ballycastle where you will enjoy fantastic view of islands just off the coast like Sheep Island, Rathlin Island or maybe even a glimpse of Scotland.
The next stop is Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, which is an abandoned fishing island located just a few miles from the Giant's Causeway. This 90-feet deep, 60-feet wide (27m deep, 18m wide) chasm is traversed by a traditionally built rope bridge which rewards the daring visitor with arguably the best views in the country. Spend approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes there. When the weather is nice and the bridge is open, you can cross the Rope Bridge for free.
The Dark Hedges, will be a 20 to 30-minute stop. The Dark Hedges were planted 270 years ago by the Stuart family as a driveway to their mansion Gracehill Manor. It is now the most photographed natural phenomenon in Northern Ireland.
Another unique part of the tour will be going across the Glens of Antrim with amazing panoramic views, instead of driving around them, on the way back to Belfast.
Last stop of the day is Belfast. You will spend approximately 1.5 hours here. Belfast has a very compact city centre as a legacy of the Troubles, also known internationally as the Northern Ireland conflict. Visit the Crown bar, Big Fish, Albert's Clock and many more attractions in the city centre while you do some shopping or buy snacks for your way back to Dublin.
You will return to Dublin at approximately 7:30pm - 8:30pm
