Full description
On this full-day excursion to the Giant’s Causeway you’ll leave Belfast at 09:45 with your Irish guide and fellow travel partners for a drive through the rolling farmland of County Antrim to the northern coast of Ireland – an area of outstanding natural beauty. Take an exhilarating walk across the rope bridge to Carrick-a-Rede Island for a real cliff-top experience. This 30-meter deep and 20-meter wide chasm is traversed by a rope bridge erected by salmon fishermen. Visitors bold enough to cross to the rocky island are rewarded with fantastic views of Rathlin and the Scottish islands. Consider crossing at your own risk for a small optional charitable donation to the National Trust, the registered UK charity that maintains the bridge. The Giant's Causeway has often been described as the 8th wonder of the world, and once you have visited the site you’ll quickly see why. The area consists of around 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns formed during a volcano eruption 60 million years ago. This is one of the world’s great natural attractions although many Irish passionately believe the causeway was built buy the Celtic warrior hero Finn McCool! A new and ultra-modern visitor center is now open and provides visitors with unique audio guides and earphones that relate the story of the rock formations in many different languages. You’re guaranteed 2 hours at the Giant's Causeway on this tour before returning to Belfast.

Our driver Paul made this experience even more enjoyable. He kept us entertained throughout the whole journey and is knowledgeable about the local history. It was a beautiful day , lots of walking and fresh air! Remember to bring a jacket as the weather changes a million times throughout the day, comfortable shoes and a camera.

The tour was nice but we couldn’t go on the bridge even though it’s stated in the itinerary. Also the forced stop for lunch for one hour was unnecessary, Tour guide was friendly and I still recommend this tour to everyone as a day trip from Belfast which doesn’t last that long

I'm over from England on my own so this trip was perfect for me to have a little bit of company. I met some lovely people on the coach and the experience from from the pick up until drop off was full of interesting facts and a huge helping of humour from our driver/tour guide Paul. He was amazing. The price was an absolute bargain, I planned to hire a car initally but I'm so pleased I didn't for this particular trip. Get booked up asap, you won't be disappointed. The causeway is an awesome sight, such beauty has no words. No wonder the Irish are so proud of their coastline. Amanda from Newcastle Upon Tyne
