Giants Causeway and Carrick-­a­-Rede Rope Bridge Group Tour from Dublin

5 / 5 total 27 reviews
Duration: 12 to 13 hours
Product code: 2319
Overview

Meet your guide in central Dublin in the early morning to start your day. To break up the drive on the way, we will stop at a service station so you can get some coffee or breakfast. The first stop, the Dark Hedges, will be a 20 ­minutes stop.

The Dark Hedges, made famous as a filming location of the hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, were planted 270 years ago by the Stuart family as a driveway to their mansion Gracehill Manor. It is now the most photographed natural phenomenon in Northern Ireland.

Then you'll get to experience the beautiful location of Giant's Causeway for at least 1.5 hours. This must­ see World Heritage Site is Northern Ireland's most popular visitor's attraction and for good reason. Magnificent seascape and, of course, the awe­ inspiring hexagonal/polygonal stone columns that form the legendary Causeway itself, some of which reach 40 feet (12 meters) into the air. The Giant’s Causeway was declared a World Heritage Site in 1986. Here you can have a sit-down lunch if you prefer. The extra lunch stop time is added into the Causeway stop.

The next stop is Carrick­-a-­Rede Rope Bridge. When the Rope Bridge is open, you will be able to cross it without paying anything extra. Carrick-­a-­Rede is an abandoned fishing island located just a few miles from the Giant’s Causeway. This 90­ft deep, 60­ft (27m, 18m) wide chasm is traversed by a traditionally built rope bridge which rewards the daring visitor with arguably the best views in the country. Spend approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes there.

Another unique part of the tour will be going across the Glens of Antrim with amazing panoramic views, instead of driving around them, on the way back to Belfast.

Last stop of the day is Belfast. You will spend approximately 45 minutes here. Belfast has a very compact city centre and as a legacy of the Troubles, is also known internationally as the Northern Ireland conflict. Visit the Crown bar, Big Fish, Albert’s Clock and many more attractions in the city centre while you do some shopping or buy snacks for your journey back to Dublin. You will return to Dublin at approximately 7:30 pm/ 8:30pm

Die Tour war super. Ein Mix aus kürzeren Stopps (vorwiegend an Game of Thrones Schauplätzen mit wunderschönen Landschaften) um Fotos zu machen und zwei langen Stopps am Giants Causeway und der Carrick-a-Rede. Der Guide war sehr freundlich und hat viel über Land, Geschichte und Legenden erzählt. Zudem gab es viele Fakten zu Game of Thrones. Auch bei Fragen zu Belfast und Restaurants gab unser Guide ausführlich Auskunft und war sehr bemüht. Die Landschaften sind beeindruckend und ich würde die Tour jederzeit wieder buchen!

Overall, the tour was excellent and fun. The tour guides were really accommodating and made the whole experience worthwhile. Didn’t expect that we’ll be stopping over in several places apart from the Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede. Would love to do the tour again.

We took this tour in September and it was wonderful. The weather was awesome - it turned out to be a sunny day so our photos are beautiful. Also, being in September and not exactly high tourist season, the crowds were totally manageable. I can see how someone who would take this tour during the busy summer months, on a rainy day might have a different experience. Unfortunately, I can't recall the name of our guide, but she was awesome. A very knowledgeable and witty young woman who explained instructions clearly told funny stories and provided great information and history on the area, the places we were going to, and even folklore. The areas we visited, and the drive through the glens were breathtakingly beautiful. We had ample time at each place. The rope bridge wasn't too scary, but I will say the strong wind did make my knees feel a bit weak - but it's a very short bridge. Highly recommend!

I went on this day trip with my 8yr old son and we both had a great day out. We both loved the rope bridge and the Giants' Causeway. The guide was fantastic and it was a well-paced day out and great value for money.

I purchased the one day tour, and I really love it! Both the bus driver and the tour guide were really good and we got ample time to enjoy every location plus we got an additional tour to the cave, the dark hedges. Giant causeways and Carrick a rede bridge is a must see a breathtaking view!

Loved the giants' causeway and the Carrick island rope bridge! Really lovely day out! Our guide was full of the knowledge of Ireland. There is a lot of walking so would not recommend this trip unless you are fit and able.
