Want a hassle-free, all encompassing tour of Northern Ireland in just one, enjoyable day trip? Book with Finn McCools Tours!
Our bus tour from Belfast collects you right at the cruise terminal and whisks you off to explore the best places to visit in Northern Ireland – the Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge on one of our best value tours!
From the Belfast Cruise Terminal, we journey to the north coast to visit the “8th wonder of the world” – the iconic Giant’s Causeway. This UNESCO-listed, world heritage site is characterised by towering hexagonal basalt columns, interlocked to create the unique landscape.
Although scientifically it is said that these columns were created by an ancient volcanic eruption somewhat 60 million years ago, legend has it that our namesake, the giant Finn McCool, created the Causeway as a walkway to meet and conquer his enemy “Benandonner” – a rival giant from Scotland.
After we explore together the beautiful scenery and rolling Irish landscape, we will depart for Belfast – the bustling capital city of Northern Ireland. There is an abundance of things to do in Belfast, from shopping and museums to famous political landmarks and stunning architecture.
Depending on the time, we might stop in Belfast before returning you to the ship.
*Departure and return times vary depending on the arrival and departure time of your ship. Around a week before your tour date, you will receive an email to confirm the pick up time at the dock.
*On rare occasions, we might not stop at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. It all depends on your ship’s arrival and departure time.
At the dock when ship arrives (As we have to wait for the Harbour’s confirmation of the ship’s arrival time, we will send you an e-mail around 1 week before your tour date to let you know the exact pick-up time.)

My wife and I had a great day out with our guide and driver William he was a very entertaining and knowledgeable chap and as they say in this neck of the woods “his craic was ninety” . Now the weather wasn’t bad for January and Saturday past was dry right up to about 4ish so all the stops were quite pleasant and the scenery outstanding in a wintery fashion. William had a lot of information about everywhere he took us and showed us video clips in relation to the sites and Game of Thrones and a bonus near the end of the tour was a visit to the Bushmills Distillery very nice have no problems in recommending this company and this driver to everyone. Ps. my wife who has a slight walking impediment and was using a cane would like to thank William for his genuine concern about her particular needs and offered welcomed advice and assistance.

We really enjoyed our recent tour to Giant’s Causeways. Our tourguide was William and it was really great.
I recommend Finn McCool to everybody visiting Ireland :)
