This activity will end right where it started.
Emerge early and depart from central Belfast in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Giant’s Causeway. Along the way, listen to legends surrounding the formation of the mystifying natural wonder that consists of hexagonal rock columns that fit together like a puzzle. Climb the coastal stones, listen to intriguing myths, and feel the invigorating ocean breeze as you spend some leisurely time at the natural landmark.

Travel the scenic Antrim Road to the famous Carrickfergus Castle, an impressive Norman fortress considered one of Northern Ireland’s best preserved. Hear of the structure’s intriguing history before traveling to the Old Mushmills Distillery, home to one of Ireland’s favorite brands of the amber nectar. Revitalize with lunch at the distilleries bar (own expense), and purchase special whiskey-related souvenirs from the gift shop (own expense).

Then, it's onto the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. On arrival, conquer your fears and walk tentatively across the rickety bridge suspended 100 feet (30 meters) above the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean (own expense). If you’d prefer to keep your adrenaline levels stable, opt for a bracing walk along the coast instead. 

Relax during the scenic journey back to Belfast, which passes the medieval Dunluce Castle, and bid your guide farewell in central Belfast.

We had Patrick/Pat as our driver and guide. He made our day really worth remembering. His jokes and good humour while telling us all kinds of stories was great. He is an excellent driver and looks after his passengers with care. If I had a touring company I would make sure he would never try another employer. I recommend this tour with him.

The magnitude of the rocks at the Causeway. The stories and "punny" jokes from Patrick, our tour guide and driver, and the comfort of the bus. The beauty of the Antrim countryside is amazing, just as I'd experienced elsewhere Ireland. The weather was gorgeous, too. A very fine day indeed!

Our driver/guide Patrick was amazing making the whole day interesting and amusing. Disappointed that although it was advertised we would go to The Rope Walk and Bushmills Distillery, we didn't. I understand this may be due to closures but feel that we should have been informed that the itinerary had changed

Overall an OK tour, parts of the tour were left out but we were not informed of this, the guide just failed to mention it until asked, no Whiskey distillery tour which should have been included and no Refund offered to compensate.

Thank you for leaving us a review. Please note that it is mentioned on our website that Bushmills Distillery is currently not a stop we can offer. This is due to the recent pandemic Kind Regards, McCombs Coaches

Our guide, Ray was brilliant. A wealth of knowledge and a cracking sense of humour. Giants Causeway was the main attraction and rightly so, but the other stops are so pretty and definitely worth it. Great value tour!
