Traveling by luxury coach, you’ll stop to see Carrickfergus Castle, the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the Old Bushmills Distillery before arriving at Giant’s Causeway. Climb the site's famous stones with your expert guide and then return to Belfast.

What to Expect
Your Giant’s Causeway tour starts with a hotel pickup in Belfast. Board your air-conditioned coach bus, and get ready for your first stop at Giant's Causeway. At the UNESCO World Heritage Site, your guide tells you cool local legends about the site as you climb the rocks on the coast. You get enough time at the Giant’s Causeway without feeling rushed. Then visit Carrickfergus Castle, a Norman fortress, and drive the scenic Antrim Road. Next up is Old Bushmills Distillery, which is super popular for its Irish whiskeys. You can enjoy lunch here (own expense), and wander the gift shop to see if you’d like to pick up any souvenirs (own expense). Last up on the day’s agenda is Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. Once you arrive at the bridge, pay your entrance fee (own expense), and stand in a short line to get your chance to cross the 65-foot-long (20-meter-long) bridge. Your tour ends with a drop-off back in Belfast city center.
