Had a great time on my day trip to the Giant's Causeway and Conrad the tour guide was a great host.Would recommend this tour company and it's a great day away from Dublin and worth the early start

Yes, it's a day trip that one shouldn't miss when you're in Dublin. We spent a weekend in Dublin last month, the 12th Oct. The coach is comfortable and the fee for the suspanded bridge is included. Our driver/guide, Joe was great, professional to make the trip knowledgable, good timing for the 'stop/break' as well as to sing very nice Irish songs on the way. Though it's a whole day trip, there's no stress on time. Same as what Joe said, we enjoyed the views along the way which is one of the top ten beautiful coastlines. In addition, we wanted to thank the staff at the booking office on Suffok St..She helped to tell our friend how to get there, O'Neil restaurant to meet us on the phone since we just arrived at Dublin for a couple of hours(on the 11th Oct.). But we forgot to ask her name. All in all, this tour is recommended! And note that it begins very early in the morning, 6:30am.

Ditched the rental car so I could actually see the landscape on the drive up from Dublin to Belfast for their tour of Belfast and no regrets about that. Got the views and so much more. Our guide, Jim, started the tour almost before the car did and included so much more than just Belfast -- made things even on the drive up much more interested (and kind of amazing how much the man knows!).

We stopped several times along the route to see the oldest celtic cross, tombs, churches, and, as we got into Belfast, a small museum and some of the local murals depicting the past struggle between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

Stopping in Belfast, we had a couple hours to ourselves, just enough time to stroll around the open marketplace and have lunch. Probably not enough time if you're looking to do some shopping up there as well but fine by me as I was more interested in the history.

Thank you Extreme Ireland and thank you, Jim!

This tour is amazing. The views are unbeatable!! We went in October and even though it was cold, it was worth every minute. Our tour guide,Jim, was great and gave us the option of visiting the shank hill and falls rd neighborhoods vs Belfast city. This part of the tour was incredibly powerful and Jim has great insight into the "troubles" of that time and place. Worth every minute and penny of our 2 wk dublin stay.

I took 2 tours while vacationing in Dublin with this company. The first was the Carrick-a-Rede Bridge and Giant's Causeway tour with Bud and then 2 days later I did the Cliffs of Moher and The Burren tour with Conrad, I belive his name was. Both tours were well organized, had great guides, and timed the stops perfectly to fit so much into just 1 day. Yes- both tours are very long days of travel but well worth it to see so much of the country with guides that know so much about the areas we travelled through. Bud is a sweetheart and gives great hugs! Very reasonable prices as well, it would cost more to do on your own and here you get to sit back, relax, and let the drivers deal with the crazy Irish roads!
