Dear Customer,

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, this tour is temporarily out of operation. We hope to get this back up and running as soon as possible with the deadline being 1st April 2021.

We are however beginning the operation of some tours in July 2020 including the Belfast City Sightseeing Tour and also our "Best of Both" tour which contains the best sights from the five-star accredited Giant's Causeway and Game of Thrones tours.

Unlike other tour operators we travel the opposite way to take you straight to the Giants Causeway site before most of the other coach tours arrive.

This way you will see the UNESCO listed Giants Causeway first, free from the crowds and queues. We also see several other sites, including the Carrick-a-Rede Rope bridge, Bushmills Whiskey Distillery, Dunluce Castle and more. Our full day Giants Causeway tour from Belfast remains our flagship daily full day tour. We operate this tour all year round!

We have years of experience in showing you one of the most beautiful parts of planet Earth in our modern, luxury coaches. Every tour is guided by a fully qualified and passionate guide who will ensure that you are enriched and engaged by your visit.

Giants Causeway
Our first stop is the Giants Causeway, commonly called ‘the 8th wonder of the world', it is the only world heritage site in Ireland. During our stop here you can spend time climbing over the ancient stones, snapping photos and reflecting on the myths and legends of this very unique area. Entrance to the visitor’s centre is included in the price of our tour, gaining you access to the café, shop and allowing you to experience the history of the area including an audio guide to enhance your experience.
**Admission to Giant's Causeway Visitors Centre in included.

Dunluce Castle
We then make our way to Dunluce Castle for a photo opportunity. This now ruined medieval castle sits perched on the edge of a basalt cliff and is one of the most picturesque castles anywhere in Ireland.

Bushmills Whiskey Distillery
Our next stop of the day is at Bushmills Whiskey Distillery which has been creating beautiful ‘ water of life ‘ since 1608 making this the oldest working distillery in Ireland. Visit this place where family and friends have worked together for generations with the philosophy that hand crafting small batches is the way to create beautifully smooth whiskey. Your stop here allows time for tasting of course!

Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge
After lunch we visit the amazing Carrick a Rede rope bridge – where you can of course cross the bridge which spans a chasm over 75ft in height. The lovely coastal path provides a spectacular walk with stunning sea and cliff views.
**Fee to cross Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge included with premium ticket.

Antrim Coast Road
The Antrim Coast Road is widely agreed to be one of the finest stretches of road anywhere in the world. The road hugs the coast line giving incredible seaside views, passing unspoilt beaches and sheltering under rugged cliffs. You may even see Scotland on a good day!

Carnlough Village
Our second last stop of the day takes us into the picturesque fishing village of Carnlough for a quick comfort break. The village stop is a fitting end to your trip as you take in the quaint harbour used by pleasure boats and small fishing vessels in an area rich for both sea and fresh water angling.

Carrickfergus Castle
Our last stop is at Carrickfergus Castle, situated on the northern shore of Belfast Lough. This Norman Castle, which dates back to 1177, was besieged in turn by the Scots, Irish, English and French for centuries. It remains one of the best preserved medieval structures in Ireland and presents a great opportunity for photographs.

All that then remains to be done is to sit back and relax on the comfortable journey back to Belfast in one of our luxury coaches. This really is a must take tour, and with the combination of our luxury coaches, experienced, friendly tour guides, and wonderful attractions, you would be mad to miss it!
