About Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge Day Trip from Belfast

  • Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge Day Trip from Belfast

Tour Code: 7572P4

Duration: 8 hours

Check off the highlights of Northern Ireland on this full-day tour from Belfast. Marvel at the Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland's only UNESCO World Heritage site; brave a walk across the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge; see memorable film locations from the Game of Thrones; and enjoy spectacular views along the Antrim Coast.

Rope Bridge Crossing fee included in Price. No other Belfast company includes the fee and charges you £6 cash on the day!

Your tour is designed to visit as many sights as possible in one day, so you'll have chance to stop along the way to admire the Dark Hedges, a key filming location for hit TV series Game of Thrones. After a 10-15-minute stop to take photos, enjoy a quick visit to the striking ruins of Dunluce Castle, before continuing to the Giant's Causeway. 

Enjoy around 1.5 hours to marvel at the spectacular landscapes, made up of some 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. Continue along the coast to the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge, a 66-foot (20-meter) long bridge that crosses the Atlantic Ocean, linking the mainland to the Carrick-a-rede island. You'll have around an hour and 20 minutes to explore, which is plenty of time to brave the bridge crossing (crossing fee included) or hike along the coast, enjoying views of nearby Sheep Island and the Mull of Kintyre.

Make a final stop in Cushendun, the closest point between Ireland and Scotland with amazing views of Scotland on a clear day, then drive back to Belfast over the Glens of Antrim, taking in dramatic views along the Antrim Coast. Your tour ends back in central Belfast around 6pm. 

Please note: Bringing a packed lunch is advised in order to maximise time on the tour.
