Giant's Causeway Tour from Belfast

Save time as well as money as you enjoy sweeping coastal views on this 10-hour Giant’s Causeway guided tour from Belfast. Besides Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you’ll see Northern Ireland landmarks like Carrickfergus Castle, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, and the Bushmills Distillery, as well as several Game of Thrones locations.

What to Expect

Your first stop along the scenic Antrim Coastal Road is beautiful Carrickfergus Castle, a 12th-century Norman castle that’s one of Ireland’s best preserved. Savor startling views of the Glens of Antrim as you pass through quaint hamlets and market towns like Glenarm, Ballycastle, Carnlough, and Cushendall.

Next, stop at the vertiginous Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge that spans the gap between the mainland and the tiny island of Carrick-a-Rede. From here, it’s just a short journey to the Giant’s Causeway, the geological and mythological wonder with its hexagonal basalt columns: you can buy lunch here or bring your own. Follow in the footsteps of the giants of Irish folklore, and see if you can spot the Wishing Chair or Giant’s Boot.

After learning the history of these ancient rock formations, you’ll visit the Dark Hedges, which you may well recognize as the Kingsroad in Game of Thrones. Finally, you’ll travel inland back to Belfast, returning at 6:30pm or 7:30pm depending on season.

After reviewing my favourite tour of Ireland (and we had many good ones), I now have to review my least favourite. You don't get a chunk of what they advertise on this tour. First, they talk about the castle North of Belfast - you actually...More

Poor customer service

I booked a trip from Belfast but due to unforseen circumstances couldn't attend. I emailed WELL ahead of time (3 or so days) and it took ages for a reply. Then I replied again after forwarding the information and was never contacted again, despite numerous...More

Good experience

Nice trip to giant’s causeway. The guide there, Sharon, was fantastic and knowledgable. Good trip in general but not enough time in giant’s causeway. The driver was also friendly and nice
