A Giants Causeway Adventure
A Giant's Causeway Adventure
A trip to Ireland will not be complete without a visit to the legendary Giant's Causeway! Volcanic activity helped forge this wonder of the world some 60 million years ago. Other tour highlights include the ruins of Dunluce Castle, along with a photo-stop at the viewing gallery of the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, which was first erected by fishermen in 1755
Depart Belfast and journey to the seaside town of Ballycastle to join the Antrim coast. With its spectacular scenery, this is an expedition any visitor to Ireland must do. The world-famous Giant's Causeway, renowned for its polygonal columns of layered basalt is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland. The 6 km of sheer cliffs rising to over 90m and forming a series of bays are spectacular. Check out the thousands of basalt columns whose tops form "stepping stones" leading from the cliff foot and disappearing under the sea. They reappear on the island of Straffe, hence the legend that this was a road built by the giant Finn McCool to cross over to Scotland. Truly an amazing wonder of the world.
Along the route, you'll experience one of the most dramatic drives in the world, now rated as one of the world's greatest road journeys. See windswept cliffs, spectacular scenery, and fabulous unspoiled beaches. Stop for photos at the ruins of Dunluce, a medieval Irish castle on the Antrim Coast. If time allows, there is an optional stop at a local village on the return journey to stretch your legs and take some more amazing photos to remember your day--you might even have an opportunity to enjoy a nice cup of tea or coffee, or a stronger drink (not included), but we will leave that decision up to you!
On your way back to the city, you will be taken on a tour that allows you to journey along the Peace Wall and lets you marvel at the world famous Belfast murals on Falls and Shankill roads.
