Overview

Venture into the fantasy world of Game of Thrones® as you tour some of Northern Ireland's most memorable filming locations from the hit HBO® series. After a rest stop that breaks up the drive, we stop by the Dark Hedges, where you will stroll beneath the dramatically arched trees, snap photos of the natural wonder, and hear from your guide why it was chosen for the scene of Arya's nail­biting escape from King's Landing.

Next stop is the Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland's only UNESCO World Heritage site and one of its most visited attractions. Enjoy the spectacular landscapes, made up of some 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions.

Next, continue to the picturesque coastal village of Ballintoy, where you'll have around 40 minutes of free time. Hear how Ballintoy Harbour served as the location for Theon Greyjoy's return to the Iron Islands, as well as scenes such as Theon's baptism, Euron's crowning, the burning of bannermen by Stannis and Melisandre, and the burial of Balon Greyjoy. We will drive along the Causeway coastal route and go through little towns like Ballycastle where you can enjoy views of Sheep Island and Rathlin Island etc.

After that, we drive through the Glens of Antrim to go to Belfast. You will spend around 45 minutes of free time to admire the city sights.

From April 11th to September 1st only, visit the GAME OF THRONES™: THE TOURING EXHIBITION with authentic props, costumes and majestic settings from all seven seasons to create an interactive and immersive Game of Thrones® experience. On days we are visiting the Touring Exhibition, the tour will not include the visit at the Ballintoy Harbour, in order to make time for the exhibition.

See the famous Crown bar, Belfast City Hall and it's Titanic memorial garden, Big Fish and Albert’s Clock etc. So stretch your legs, or grab some food (own expense) at one of the many cafes or restaurants. Your tour ends back in central Dublin around 7:30pm/ 8:30pm.

Excellent trip! Jeanette our tour guide was wonderful! She was there to answer all of our questions, provide us a bit of history and there to entertain us with Irish music. Mike our driver was also excellent! Both kept us safe and on schedule. Prepare to walk a lot with this tour and bring a light jacket. The best part of our trip to Ireland so far.

Some minutes on Dunluce castle to appreciate the view, some hours in giant causeway and last stop on Dark hedges (game of thrones) ! The guide is really funny, I really like his stories, and I learn many things about Ireland and Irish. Thanks you so much for this lovely day.

We came from Spain, and as our stay in Ireland was going to be brief, we wanted to make the most of it and learn about the country as much as possible. As I have been an eager nature lover since childhood, my sister thought that this tour would be an excellent way to spend a special day together and discover the natural wonders of the North. I must say that she could n´t have made a better choice, we enjoyed every single moment of the trip. The journey was lovely, everything was perfectly organised and we had the opportunity of visiting amazing places with breathtaking views, taking pictures and explore around.

We had a great time with Nathan and Adam on the tour from Dublin to Giant's Causeway. It was a long day, but it was completely worth doing. I've been on other tours where they drop you off in a tourist trap, but this tour didn't include any of that. The bus was comfortable and air conditioned, and the driver did a great job navigating some of the tiny roads. The sights were terrific and I loved hopping the stones at Giant's Causeway.

Had my aunt coming over with her husband for a few days in Dublin.We booked this trip, it seemed perfect to see these beautiful spots, far from Dublin, in a short time. Not only was definitely worth it because of the stunning places we have been to, but the whole experience was made special by the excellent tour guide, who explained the history of Ireland in the most intense, entertaining and sometimes even moving way!I will come back for sure and recommend it to all my friends.

The tour took us from Dublin all the way to Northern Ireland's Giant's Causeway while stopping at some scenery from Game of Thrones. The ride was very smooth thanks to Martin's driving. Nathan is a remarkable guide, not only is he knowledgeable about Ireland and Irish history but he is also a genuinely nice person who cares about people which all in all made the day trip even more enjoyable. In itself, the experience of crossing the border and going to the far North of the island of Ireland was worth the day!

We are definitely glad we did this long drive up north to see the Giant's Causeway. The time goes by quickly as you learn Irish history along the way. The tour guide will go on every hour or so and narrate a relevant chapter of history that goes along with sites we are passing. It is entertaining to watch the scenery out the window.We had enough time at the stops to take photos and explore the beauty of these places.Long day but worth it.

We decided to take this tour on our last day of a 10 day Scotland/Ireland family vacation. At first the thought of 10 hours on a bus was not welcome - but we relented and gave it a go - and so glad we did! It was a terrific way to see the beautiful Irish country side and more than any city tour could offer. Our guide, Nathan and driver Adam were both incredible. Friendly and knowledgeable which made the tour informative and enjoyable! Our kids and ourselves were able to see sights we hope to carry for a lifetime and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. Highly recommend.

Our tour guide and driver (Nathan and Adam) provided us a great experience visiting this marvelous sight. Nathan was a wealth of knowledge and willingly and fully answered every question asked of him, while Adam safely navigated the narrow roads. Giants Causeway is a geological wonder that you should not miss.

My wife and I went on the Giants Causeway Tour . It was definitely a long day, but our guide, Dave, and driver, Adam, made it well worth it. Fantastic views and great photo opportunities! The perfect amount of time was enough for each stop. On the way there, Dave gave a lot of information about a history of Ireland. I would recommend for anyone considering it.
