We depart from Dublin and travel North, crossing the border and arriving to Northern Ireland. A brief comfort stop on the way will ensure you arrived refreshed and ready for a great day of sightseeing.
On our way towards the North Coast, we enjoy a scenic drive through some of the Glens of Antrim. This area has been named as an area of outstanding natural beauty. Enjoy a panoramic drive admiring the valleys, and lovely countryside of County Antrim.
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!
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!
Next stop is Ireland's only rope bridge. Fishermen erected this bridge to Carrick-a-Rede islandat just over 20 metres in length. It was used for centuries to harvest salmon from the nets below. From here we have views of Mull of Kintyre in Scotland and Rathlin Island.
*Unfortunately, the local government who administer the rope bridge have decided not to accept groups from May 2022 due to capacity issues. Accordingly, we'll stop for some amazing photos and and enjoy extra time at Dunluce Castle.
We continue along the Antrim coast with views of Whitepark Bay and Portbradden. The Giant's Causeway is the highlight of this trip for most! Discover 37,000 basalt columns which form "stepping stones" rising from the sea to the cliffs.
The Giant's Causeway is reputed to be the walkway used by Fionn MacCumhaill, the legendary Irish warrior who fought Scottish giant Benandonner to win the heart of the most beautiful girl in the Highlands.
Enjoy at least 90 minutes at this UNESCO World Heritage Site!
The path to Giant's Causeway starts just behind the visitor center, it is only 10 minutes walk! For a token fee there is also a mobility bus that can bring you all the way down the path to the Causeway (for those with walking difficulties or those who enjoyed Temple Bar a little too much the previous evening!)
Next stop is the House of Greyjoy from HBOs Game of Thrones. In real life, Dunluce Castle was built by the McQuillan family around 1500.
One of Northern Ireland's premier castles, it is located atop sheer cliffs overlooking the Atlantic ocean – the perfect setting for one of the Great Houses of Westeros. The Castle’s dramatic history of violence, intrigue and rebellion is matched by the scandal and betrayal committed by the Greyjoys in Game of Thrones.
On our way home we take a panoramic tour of Belfast city, with your guide pointing out some of the highlights of this great city. We will stop near the City Hall for one hour, so you can enjoy some free time in the city centre. Please note: This is a brief visit to Belfast for those who may not have another opportunity to visit, we also offer a full Day Tour to Belfast from Dublin. The Belfast tour spends the entire day exploring Belfast in more detail, and is recommended for those who wish to see more of the city and be immersed in the history and politics of the northern capital.
We relax as we make our way back to Dublin via the motorway, and expect to return to Dublin at approx 8.30 pm after a fun-filled day!

Our trip to Giants Causeway was great. Desmond was the best tour guide ever. Make sure to do the black taxi tour in Belfast.
Bailey for president! Also, Giants Causeway trip is a must!
I recently visited Dublin and did the Paddywagon Day Tour to Giant's Causeway. The scenery was breathtaking and the places we visited were truly exquisite. The tour itself strategically planned to gain the best possible experience from just 1 day of adventuring. However, one highlight to this trip was…
