Enjoy a full day tour from Dublin that transports you to the very northern point of Ireland where you'll see the most breathtaking sights and scenery Northern Ireland has on offer.

Come along on this fun filled journey to experience the very best Northern Ireland has to offer. Breathe in the fresh northern air at the causeway and explore the many different shapes and rock formations that are surrounded in mystery and mythology.

Can you draw up the courage of a lion to cross the famous Carrick a rede rope bridge(Price included!) or maybe a leisurely stroll along the beautiful sweeping beach looking out on Whitepark bay and Portbradden is more your idea of heaven.

9:00 am -- Arrive in Belfast for a short stop for a coffee before hitting the coast road.

9:20 am -- You then take the very scenic coast road from Larne and see the famous Causeway coastal road for the first time. This drive can be compared the Ireland's great ocean road, and passing through quaint village on the way with views unmatched anywhere else in Ireland.

11:15 am -- You will arrive at the renowned Carrick a rede rope bridge and spend about an hour taking the winding coastal path to take up your position and prepare to cross over this historical walkway. The rope bridge is run by the National Trust and the price of the bridge is included in the tour. As you cross over to the island there are amazing views looking out over the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland and Rathlin Island. It is a 20 minute walk from the car park to the rope bridge and you may get to see some of the coastal wildlife on the way as your stomach builds up for the leap of faith over the rope bridge!

12:30 pm -- Now that you have worked up a hunger after your walk you will have lunch in the picturesque village of Ballintoy. Two pubs, two churches and lots of interesting personalities, this village is a great place to stop and try one of the local pots of food. You may have gotten some yellowman and dulce by now in Ballycastle that you can have for dessert!

1:30 pm -- After lunch you will make our way to the Famous Causeway taking in views of Dunluce Castle on the way, reputed to be the inspiration for Cair Paravel, the famous castle in CS Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia. We recommend walking the top cliffs so you get a good view of the causeway on the way and then descending to the feature called the Organ and working your way back towards the visitor center. You will be not be disappointed with this natural wonder of the world.
