Giant's Causeway, Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge and the Dark Hedges: discover Northern Ireland's most emblematic landmarks on this day trip from Belfast.
Giant's Causeway Tour
On the day of the excursion, we'll set off from Belfast at 9:30 am and head to the north in the direction of our first stop: the Dark Hedges. We'll spend around twenty minutes in this mysterious spot, an avenue lined with beech trees which has become an iconic attraction in Northern Ireland - so much so that Game of Thrones has used it as a filming location for the King's Road!
Continuing on our tour of Northern Ireland, we'll head past the Bushmills Distillery, and our guide will tell us all about how whiskey is made in Ireland. If you do this tour in summer, we'll also make a five-minute stop at Dunluce Castle so you can take photos of the clifftop medieval castle ruins.
Our next stop is the highlight of the day and the most popular tourist attraction in Northern Ireland. Giant's Causeway is an enormous collection of interlocking basalt columns created by an ancient volcanic eruption, although according to local legend it was formed when an Irish giant ripped the earth from the ground - we'll let you decide which is the true story!
The UNESCO World Heritage Site has such uniquely spectacular landscapes that you'll feel as though you're on an alien planet. We'll spend an hour and a half exploring the fascinating hexagonal columns and admiring the beautiful sea views before heading to our next stop.
The last place we'll visit is the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge. This traditional rope bridge, which spans 66 feet (20 metres) over a 98-foot (30 metre) deep chasm, was originally built some 350 years ago by local fishermen. Thankfully for our safety, a modernised version has since been created, but the rope bridge still offers unparalleled views over the surrounding coastal landscapes.
At the end of an unforgettable day of sightseeing, we'll make the return journey to Belfast, arriving back between 5 pm to 5:30 pm.
