Discover the breathtaking coastline of Northern Ireland with this tour departing from Belfast. The first stop is the Giants Causeway: commonly called ‘the 8th wonder of the world,' it is the only world heritage site in Ireland. During your 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 center is included in the price, providing you access to the café and shop, and allowing you to experience the history of the area with an audio guide to enhance your experience.
The 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! (Tasting cost not included)
You will then make your 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 in all of Ireland.
After lunch, 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. The tour will then pass on the Antrim Coast Road, 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 unspoiled beaches and sheltering under rugged cliffs. You may even see Scotland on a good day!
The second to last stop of the day takes you 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 harbor used by boats and small fishing vessels in an area rich for both sea and fresh water angling.
The 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 a luxury coach. With the combination of a luxury coach, an experienced and friendly tour guide, and wonderful attractions, you absolutely won't want to miss out!
