At a bargain price as well!!!

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 Throne and the new Transformers movie.
BELFAST – At least 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.

Both the driver and the guide were amazing. They made our long tour very short and enjoyable, telling stories about the country, the history of the country and themselves, that we deeply appreciated. They made us feel a big family enjoying every second. The driver was proffessional, and made us feel safe.
