Your day trip to Giant's Causeway will set off from Dublin in the early morning to make good use of the quiet roads. There will be a brief coffee stop as you enter Northern Ireland, before continuing north to the picturesque Dark hedges. This magical road is straight from a story book. The Dark Hedges represents the King’s Road in the famous television series “Game of Thrones”. The avenue is made up of beech trees that were planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century to impress visitors as they approached the Gracehill House. You will have time to have a brief walk around and snap some photos before returning to the bus to continue the journey to the Giant's Causeway.

The Giant's Causeway area is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and bearing testament to this status, you'll find the Causeway coast to be an area of unsurpassed natural beauty. As you travel, pass romantic towns and quaint villages, surrounded by isolated ruins, rocky shores and green glens. Unsurprisingly, the Causeway coastal road is often referred to as one of the world's greatest road journeys, so sit back and enjoy the ride!

Your route back from Northern Ireland to Dublin follows the Giant's Causeway south, so you'll have further time to take in the amazing views and spot coastal wildlife. There will be a stop in Belfast on the return journey and you’ll have chance to stretch your legs and have a look around the capital city, which has undergone extensive regeneration work in recent years. Your day trip arrives back in Dublin in the early evening, after an exhilarating day at Northern Ireland's most spectacular location.

This was an amazing excursion! It was a long day that was packed with lots of great stops and went by very fast. The bus was comfortable and stops were made for snacks and restrooms. We got lucky and had perfect weather. The stop at The Dark Hedges was about 15 minutes and was all that is needed to take a quick look around and a few photos. The rope bridge was fun and the landscape is beautiful. We had a very clear day and could see the coast of Scotland! Lunch was at a very cute, small roadside restaurant that seemed prepared for our arrival. The food was served quickly, tasted good, and very reasonably priced!

Giant's Causeway was beautiful and amazing. We had a great time climbing on the rocks and hiking around the area. We had about 2 hours there, which was a good amount of time, but it would have been nice to have a little longer.

Belfast is an interesting place with a lot of history. We had about 1.5 hours there and went to an old pub and walked around the capital area. The last stop was just a quick pullover and photo op of a seaside castle.

Overall this tour is highly recommended and a ton of fun!
