Tour Operated by Elegant Irish Tours



We are excited to unveil our new (small group) UNESCO Giant's Causeway and Bushmills Distillery tour from 1st April 2023.

In the morning visit the world's oldest licensed whiskey distillery at Bushmills. Maybe sample a drop of this iconic Irish spirit and shop for unique gifts to take home.

In the afternoon stand on Ireland's northern edge and enjoy the spectacular views, nature and photography which make Giant's Causeway a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With a free cancellation option up to 24 hours before departure you can pre- book with confidence. Lock in your seats (any date for Spring / Summer 2023) at the early bird rate today.

Guest advice:

Following the pandemic, full clearance has again been given to the cruise line industry to dock at Ireland's ports of Dublin, Dún Laoghaire, Cork, Cobh and Belfast. We are seeing cruise numbers starting to boom again. During peak- season (May 1st - September 30th) multiple cruise ships are expected at the major ports on a daily basis. This small group tour tends to sell- out well ahead of departure for most dates within this period. Accordingly, we recommend advance reservation where possible, to avoid disappointment.

  • Depart Dublin (Hotel Collection)

    This small group tour collects from several of Dublin's leading 5 star hotels (see booking calendar for addresses and times).

    Your vehicle is a premium black Mercedes- Benz touring van custom built to seat not more than 25 passengers. There is extra legroom between the plush leather seats and USB ports and wifi for your convenience. Pick a seat, stretch out your legs and relax in the dimmed light of the comfortable interior.

    Your driver knows the city streets like the back of his hand and will have everyone on the freeway heading north in short order.

    NB: Please feel free to select whichever collection point is most convenient for you. You do not have to be a guest of the named hotels to be collected from the valet.

  • Bushmills Whiskey Distillery - A license to distill since 1608

    3.5 hours after departure and a short refreshment stop, the tour will arrive into the village of Bushmills at approximately 11:00.

    The town is located in a part of Northern Ireland which draws its heritage primarily from the Ulster- Scots or Ulster Unionist tradition. The Union flags and Cenotaph Memorial commemorating the War Dead of the Great War and Second World War add to the distinctly British vibe.

    Bushmills Distillery itself is one of the world's greats. A license to distill in the area was granted to Sir Thomas Phillips by King James I in 1608. Over 400 years later, this is the oldest licensed distillery in the world.

    Look forward to a guided tour of the working core of the facility and complete your visit in the 1608 bar to taste for yourself the culmination of more than 400 years of expertise and innovation.

    Afterwards shop for unique gifts including the 10, 16 and 21 year old single malts and the vintage Causeway Collection.

    Your entrance fee (GBP 15.00 / EUR 17.00) is included in the price of this tour.

  • Lunch

    At approximately 12.00 -12.30 we'll stop for lunch, typically in a good local pub.

    Enjoy some delicious local food and drink such as seafood chowder, steamed mussels, ploughman's lunch, traditional fish and chips or Irish stew.

    Northern Ireland also produces some excellent local craft beers and dry ciders - you're sure to find a pairing for your meal!

  • UNESCO Giant's Causeway

    Considered one of the 'Natural Wonders of the World', Giant's Causeway was formed by more than 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns that were created by volcanic activity 60 million years ago.

    Some locals would have you believe that the Causeway is reputed to be the walkway created by Fionn MacCumhaill, the legendary Irishman who fought Scottish giant Benandonner to win the love of the most beautiful girl in the highlands.

    Enjoy approximately two hours at leisure to experience this unique wonder of nature.

    Your GBP 15.00 / EUR 17.00 entrance is included for the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre.

  • Arrive In Dublin Approx. 19:00

    The tour departs Giants Causeway at approximately 15:00 and all going well on the road we expect to drop you in downtown Dublin by approximately 19:00 in time for some rest, aperitifs and dinner reservations.

    Choose to drop- off either in downtown Dublin or at the same hotel you were collected from.

    We hope you have enjoyed your visit to UNESCO Giants Causeway and Bushmills Whiskey Distillery
