    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Europa Hotel, Great Victoria St, Belfast BT2 7AP, UK

    We depart from Belfast City Center, from the bus shelter in front of the famous Europa Hotel, on Great Victoria street. Begin the journey in the company of your 100% Irish guide and your fellow travel partners for today, we'll get to know each other and have our charming guide set the scene as we take the drive through the rolling farmland of county Antrim to the North Coast of Ireland - an area of outstanding natural beauty.

    Stop At: Causeway Coastal Route, 160 Main Street, Bushmills BT57 8QE Northern Ireland

    We make our way to the Causeway Coast where we can see fine views of Rathlin Island, and on a clear day we may even see the Scottish coast 13 miles away. The views along this coastline are spectacular, no wonder it is one of the most visited destinations in Europe!

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: The Dark Hedges, off Bregagh Road, Ballymoney Northern Ireland

    We visit the most popular natural phenomena in Northern Ireland, the Dark Hedges. The trees were planted in the 18th century by the Stuart family to impress their guests upon arrival to their house. Most of you will recognize the Dark Hedges as King's Road from the hit TV series Game of Thrones. It is a wonderful photo-stop and an opportunity to be a part of a real life set!

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, 119A Whitepark Road, Ballintoy BT54 6LS Northern Ireland

    The Rope bridge at Carrick-A-Rede is situated near the charming village of Ballintoy. Those that wish to cross the bridge can do so for a discounted price, and the charges for crossing the bridge go to support the National trust which is the charity that is responsible for the upkeep of the bridge. Those that do not wish to cross the bridge, can use the time to take an enjoyable coastal walk or visit the charming tea-rooms on the site. Please note: the bridge is a 1km walk from the car park, on an uneven path, so walking all the way to the bridge may not be practical for everyon

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Giant's Causeway, Causeway Road, Bushmills BT57 8SU Northern Ireland

    The Giant's Causeway is the highlight of this trip for most! Built by the Irish giant Fionn and his Scottish rival Angus, it is a real masterpiece formed of perfectly shaped hexagonal columns. Your tour guide shall tell you more about the Causeway, and the legends of the area. - WE INCLUDE ADMISSION TO THE CAUSEWAY VISITOR'S CENTER, OTHER COMPANIES DO NOT (value GBP 8)- We provide you with an admission ticket to the interpretative center, enhancing your experience at the Causeway! The path to the causeway stones starts behind the center, it is only 10 mins walk! For a small fare there is a mobility bus that can bring you all the way down the path to the Causeway, for those with walking difficulties.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Dunluce Castle, 87 Dunluce Road Co. Antrim, Portrush BT57 8UY Northern Ireland

    We arrive at one of the most dramatic castle ruins in the world for a photo-stop, prepare to be amazed at the way this old castle hangs over the edge of the cliffs. Part of the Dunluce Castle fell into the sea in the 1600's, and some servants died in the tragedy. Since that time, it is believed to be haunted by the unfortunate servants. Take some impressive photos before we leave the coast and make our way to Belfast.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Pass By: Europa Hotel, Great Victoria St, Belfast BT2 7AP, UK

    Arrive back in Belfast safe and well around 05:00pm in downtown Belfast, your thirst for knowledge quenched and of course you can now say to all your friends that the top attractions in Northern Ireland are now crossed off your list!

    This would have been a very scenic trip if the weather had been kinder. None the less, it was an interesting trip made all the more so by our driver Brendan who was very informative, funny, accommodating and tactful.
