What to expect

Your first stop will be at the Titanic Experience Museum where you can explore the symbolism of the Titanic, which was Belfast’s iconic structure. Walk in the footsteps of the men who built the world’s most famous ship, in Belfast's historic shipyard and visit over nine interactive galleries with state of the art exhibitions making use of special effects, rides, and full-scale reconstructions.

Continue your tour to the second stop, Carrickfergus Castle. Built by John de Courcy over 800 years ago, Carrickfergus has long been the center of a power struggle for those wanting to control the port. The castle now houses historical displays as well as cannons from the 17th to the 19th centuries, ramparts, dungeons, and winding staircases with trip steps to deter any invaders. Afterwards, grab fantastic views and photo opportunities at Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge which links the mainland to the tiny island of Carrick-a-rede and is 30 meters above the rocks below.

The next attraction is the Giant's Causeway, allegedly built by Irish giant Finn McCool to travel to Scotland and fight his rival Benandonner. The causeway consists of 40,000 interlocking hexagonal columns along 6 kilometers of the northern coast of Northern Ireland, created by volcanic activity between 50 and 60 million years ago. In 1986, the Causeway was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site and remains one of Northern Ireland's most famous attractions.

The last stop will be a photography stop at the iconic ruin of Dunluce Castle, which bears witness to a long and tumultuous history. Built on the dramatic coastal cliffs of north County Antrim by the MacQuillan family around 1500, the castle has since been used in the 2001 film The Medallion with Jackie Chan. It's also been immortalised as the inner gatefold of the 1973 Led Zeppelin album Houses of the Holy.
