A cruise around the UK and Ireland is not complete without glimpsing the breathtaking views of the Giants Causeway. The site has energized artists, drawn scientific debates and captured the imagination of all those who visit. This popular tour also includes the ruins of Dunluce Castle, the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, the quaint seaside village of Ballycastle and even quality time to discover Belfast City!
Departing Belfast Cruise port, the tour heads inland through beautiful scenery directly to the Giants Causeway. Most cruise lines travel to Belfast first, which makes the roads clear for you on this tour. Upon arrival unlock the mystery and theories of the stunning landscape in the award winning exhibition center. There is a café for those who want to indulge in local cuisine, and retail area where you can take back local souvenirs.
After approximately one hour we depart for Dunluce Castle. Here you have an opportunity to take photos of these striking ruins. Then it's a short journey to the famous rope bridge near Ballintoy known as the Carrick-a-Rede. The bridge is 20 meters long and 30 meters above the sea and rocks below. This bridge links Northern Ireland to the small island of Carrickarede. Those interested can choose to cross the bridge for an additional fee of approximately £5.90 GBP (not included in tour price) on the day of the tour.
Next, head along one of the most picturesque portions of this journey to the seaside village of Ballycastle where we can enjoy lunch on your own in the heart of the Giants Causeway. After lunch, continue the coastal tour toward Belfast City. In Belfast, your tour includes the sights in the city and a main highlight is seeing where the famed Titanic ship was built. Belfast was created during a time of industry and engineering, it overcame disease, bombing, famine and many political issues. Now it is seen as one of the most popular cities Europe has to offer. After the city tour, make our way back to the ship in plenty of time. This tour provides you a scenic, historical and enjoying day in Northern Island. Reserve your memories today.

The tour guide was very nice and the bus was comfortable. My only complaint was that we did not stop at the Carrick-a- Rede rope bridge and and given the chance to cross it AS ADVERTISED IN THE DESCRIPTION. We only went to a distant overlook. I had picked this tour for this reason and was therefore a way wee-bit disappointed.
