Unlike any other ordinary Giant’s Causeway tour from Belfast, this tour takes you to Derry/ Londonderry, Mussenden Temple/ Downhill Beach and the Giant’s Causeway
Steeped in history, this city has lots to offer the tourists that want to do a tour that is different from the commercial tours. Walk the 1.5-km-long, 17th-century-walls, the only city walls in Ireland to survive almost intact. Things to go and explore by yourself include: The Derry/ Londonderry City Walls, The Tower Museum, St. Eugene’s Cathedral, St. Columb’s Cathedral, People’s Gallery, Murals, Museum of Free Derry, Guildhall, Long Tower Church and much more like the sight of the river Foyle
If you do not want to do the Downhills Beach, you can choose to see Mussenden Temple (entrance fee not included) instead.
An 11km stretch of sand and surf and scenic walks with facilities for that perfect day out. Downhill is a Blue Flag Award Beach 2015. This beach is certified as an Area of Special Scientific Interest (ASSI) and is also Special Area of Conservation (SAC).
Amazing views and photo opportunities of Mussenden Temple is available from this long stretch of beach, one of the most photographed buildings in Northern Ireland. This stretch of beach is one of the most scenic in Ireland with views to Counties Donegal, Antrim and Londonderry.
As an added extra Downhill Beach is used in the filming of Game of Thrones as Dragonstone, where the Seven Idols of Westeros were burned and Melisandre, flames dancing into the night sky, proclaimed, “For the night is dark and full of terrors.”
Mussenden Temple (fee not included)
If you do not want to do the Mussenden Temple, you can choose to see Downhills Beach instead.
Built in 1785 and located in the surroundings of Downhill Demesne near Castlerock, perches dramatically on a 120 ft cliff top with spectacular views westwards over Downhill Strand towards Magilligan Point and County Donegal and to the east Castlerock beach towards Portstewart, Portrush and Fair Head.
Both the Temple and surrounding views are among the most photographed scenes in Ireland. Over the years, the Temple itself was under danger of being lost to the sea due to the erosion of the cliff which brought Mussenden Temple ever closer to the edge. Want to risk it on the edge?
The Giant’s Causeway is also called the “8th wonder of the world”. This most popular tourist attraction in Northern Ireland has the most magnificent seascape. According to the legend, the giant Finn McCools built the Causeway so he could fight the Scottish giant. According to science, the Causeway was formed after an ancient volcanic eruption.

One word – amazing! I want to point two great guides, William and Paul. The tour was great, lovely nature, brilliantly arranged stops to keep us entertained…But you guys are ones that made our day phenomenal! Funny stories, great humor (I mean, really great), comfort drive… And one more thing – I really liked how they payed attention on weather conditions because they wanted us to come on G.Causeway during nice weather. Definitely worth every penny! Once again, thank you guys for beautiful memories! Greetings from Croatia ;)
“Super cool tour!”
