Combine the rugged cliffs of the Antrim coast with the highlights of the city of Belfast and you’ll get the best of what Northern Ireland has to offer. A panoramic tour introduces you to the many varied features of Belfast, Northern Ireland’s largest city. Built with 19th century industrial money, many fine buildings from this era grace the city still and are reminders of its prosperous past. Learn about its troubled history and enjoy commentary as you drive by the Grand Opera House and the Albert Memorial, Queen’s University and the Botanic Gardens. Belfast City Hall, an impressive building with a 300ft long façade, dominates Donegall Square.


Drive north with a photo stop at Dunluce Castle. The ruins of the castle perched on the cliff produce a dramatic contrast against the Atlantic coast. Visit the Giants’ Causeway, a marvel of nature. The unique rock formations of rugged symmetry never fail to intrigue and inspire. Let your imagination travel along stepping-stones that lead to either the creative turbulence of a bygone volcanic age or into the myths and legends of the past. The “Causeway Coaster” minibus will bring you directly to the causeway itself. A drive along the Antrim Coast offers some of the world’s most spectacular and unspoiled scenery. Stop to photograph the Carrick A Rede Rope Bridge, from a viewing point. During the day, you’ll enjoy lunch at a local hotel or restaurant.


Need to Know:

Note: There is uneven terrain at the Causeway and stones and approximately 100 steps on tour.
