Bringing you to the highly acclaimed Titanic Experience in Belfast, Giant’s Causeway, Dark Hedges and Belfast from Dublin on this day trip.
Considering the Titanic Museum in Belfast is one of the most expensive tourist attractions in Europe (almost £20 entrance fee…) and the Giant’s Causeway is the most-visited tourist attraction in Northern Ireland, we at Finn McCools Tours have decided to make an affordable day tour from Dublin that include both of the must-see attractions in Northern Ireland. At a bargain price as well!!!
0705 Start boarding outside Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane to start this exciting full day tour from Dublin taking you to the best tourist attraction Norther Ireland has to offer.
0715 Leaving Parnell Square North, you can expect our highly trained guide to tell you some amazing stories including Irish legend, myths and some history as we make our way to the first stop of the day.
DUNLUCE CASTLE (photo stop)
En route to the Giant’s Causeway, we will stop for 5 minutes at of one of the most photogenic castle ruins in Ireland. Dated as long ago as before 1513, this castle is built on a rock extending into the ocean. Giving a photographer an amazing photo opportunity.
GIANT’S CAUSEWAY – Around 2 hours
We will now take you to the 8th wonder of the World where you will have 2 hours to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site. By far the most visited tourist attraction in Northern Ireland. The Giant’s Causeway consists of 40,000 interlocking hexagonal basalt columns formed between 50 and 60 million years ago. Many locals believe in the mythical creation of the Giant’s Causeway by the Irish Giant Finn McCool, in an attempt to build a bridge to Scotland.
DARK HEDGES – Around 20 minutes
This 300-year-old lane of beech trees make for a wonderful photo opportunity that will have any amateur photographer smiling. Originally planted as a driveway to Gracehill house, this lane of trees still impresses people 300 years later. Considered the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland, these trees feature in some films and tv series like Game of Thrones and the new Transformers movie.
TITANIC MUSEUM – Around 2 hours (Entrance Fee included; Saves £18!)
Visit one of the WORLD’S LEADING TOURIST ATTRACTIONS
Extending over nine interactive galleries, the Titanic Belfast will give you a new dimension to this state of the art exhibition, making use of special effects, rides and full-scale reconstructions. The is truly a museum not to be missed!
Explore the shipyard, travel to the depths of the ocean and uncover the true legend of Titanic, in the city where it all began.
The museum tells the story of Titanic from conception, construction to launch. And also of her ill-fated maiden voyage that cemented Titanic’s place in history.
Using innovative technology, film, archival materials, scale models and many more interactive displays where you can emerge yourself in the history of this iconic ship, the story of the Titanic will come alive.
BELFAST – Around 1 hour
Over the last 20 years since the end of the troubles, Belfast has become one of the friendliest and most vibrant cities in Europe.
Now we will give you the opportunity to spend around an hour in the city centre, exploring what a wonderful city Belfast turned into after The Troubles. This is a nice break from sightseeing to give you some chance to recharge your batteries before the tour takes you back to Dublin, it is also an opportunity for some shopping, getting food for the drive back and a bathroom break.

Tara Croft was an amazing tour guide! She was very friendly, funny, and knowledgeable with everything. The tour was a very fun experience. We learned a lot about the history of Ireland, and seen some unexplainable breath taking scenery.
From what I gathered, we were supposed to visit a gas station for a pit stop after the tour, but we were able to stop at Belfast for a quick 2nd time instead – perfect change!!!! We got to have a delicious pint to end the day. Oh and thanks to petros the driver for his excellent driving and keeping anything left behind safe.
