    Itinerary

    The spectacular Giant's Causeway Tour from Dublin takes you from Dublin to a magnificent UNESCO Heritage site in the northern half of Ireland! To join the tour, make your way to Suffolk Street, at the Old Church, Dublin City Centre.

    You will leave Dublin at 0630h (6:30am) and take the 100 mile (166 km) journey on the M1 straight up to the city of Belfast. There will be comfort breaks on the way and then head into the Northern Irish countryside.

    Along the drive you will visit the Dark hedges, a picturesque tree-lined road that looks as if it comes straight out of a story book. The Dark Hedges represents the King’s Road in the famous television series “Game of Thrones” and is an avenue of beech trees with branches hanging over the road..

    Next we visit and cross Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge which connects a 23m-deep and 20m-wide chasm between the mainland and a small island that has been used over the years by fishermen to place netting to capture migrating salmon. Following a 20 minute scenic cliff walk, you can traverse the bridge to the island with its abundance of birdlife, and to enjoy the spectacular coastal views from a different vantage point.

    After lunch it is time for The Giants Causeway which is the highlight of the trip . This UNESCO World Heritage site consists of a series of over 40,000 hexagonal shaped rocks that looks like a grand set of stairs leading into the sea, the formation of which has been astounding generations. These awe-inspiring stones have resulted in inspiring many a myth and stories surrounding their origin, some of which your guide will just to be happy tell you in full technicolour!

    After the amazing Giants Causeway we continue to the spectacular Dunluce Castle, precariously perched on Cliffside , once home of the notorious McDonnell clan! This tour includes a self guided tour of Dunluce where you will get an insight to its fascinating history and the peerless family who owned it.

    At the end you will be dropped back at the starting point in Dublin.
