Stop At: Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge

The Rope bridge at Carrick-A-Rede (photo stop only) is situated near the charming village of Ballintoy.

Stop At: Giant's Causeway

Your tour guide shall tell you more about the Causeway, and the legends of the area. The entrance fee for the visitor centre is not included as the UNESCO World Heritage Site is actually completely free of charge to the public. Based on years of guest feedback our guests prefer to have the best possible value price for the overall tour and then can make individual decisions locally as to whether they wish to access the adjacent visitor centre for a fee at the door.

Pass By: Dunluce Castle

We arrive at one of the most dramatic castle ruins in the world for a 1 hour stop, prepare to be amazed at the way this old castle hangs over the edge of the cliffs. Part of the Dunluce Castle fell into the sea in the 1600's, and some servants died in the tragedy. Since that time, it is believed to be haunted by the unfortunate servants. Take some impressive photos before we leave the coast and make our way to Belfast.
