Giant's Causeway and Titanic Museum Day Tour from Dublin

Get the complete package as you travel to Northern Ireland's most popular attraction, the Giant's Causeway along with the Titanic Museum in Belfast all in one day!

 

At 06:35 you will start boarding the bus outside the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin and get ready for an incredible day tour to Northern Ireland.

 

Leave Parnell Square North at 06:45 as the highly trained guide will entertain participants with fascinating stories about Dublin, the northern countryside, and the legends and myths that pervade Ireland. As they travel, participants will learn about Ireland’s rich history on their way to the day’s first destination: Dunluce Castle.

 

Dunluce Castle

The tour briefly pauses at Dunluce Castle for just 5 to 10 minutes. Dunluce Castle, constructed in 1513, is regarded as one of Ireland's most picturesque castle ruins. The stop allows guests a moment to capture photos and admire the stunning remains of the castle, which is perched dramatically atop the cliffs.

 

After visiting Dunluce Castle, the tour continues to the Giant’s Causeway, often celebrated as the eighth wonder of the world. Visitors will have approximately 1.5 hours to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site, the most frequented tourist attraction in Northern Ireland.

 

Giant's Causeway

During the Giant’s Causeway tour from Dublin, participants will discover fascinating details about this geological marvel, which is composed of about 40,000 interlocking hexagonal basalt columns formed over 50 million years ago. The tour also delves into the legendary tales of the Irish giant Finn McCool, who, according to local folklore, created the Causeway as a bridge to Scotland.

 

Dark Hedges

The Dark Hedges are a 300-year-old avenue of beech trees, originally planted as the approach to Gracehill House, remains a stunning visual spectacle. The lane continues to impress 300 years later and is now considered the most photographed natural phenomenon in Northern Ireland. Known as the Dark Hedges, this scenic road has featured in notable films and TV series, including "Game of Thrones" (as part of King's Road) and a "Transformers" movie, making it a prime location for both amateur and professional photographers.

 

Titanic Museum Belfast

 

Next stop of the day is The Titanic Belfast and is recognised as one of the world's leading tourist attractions. Spanning nine interactive galleries, the exhibition offers a multidimensional experience through special effects, rides, and full-scale reconstructions. This museum, celebrated for its elaborate portrayal of the Titanic's story, represents a significant investment in time and money, ensuring a unique and educational visit for all who explore its halls.

 

Visitors can explore the shipyard, delve into the ocean depths, and discover the true story of the Titanic at the Titanic Museum in Belfast, the birthplace of the ship.

The museum narrates the Titanic's journey from its conception and construction to its launch and tragic maiden voyage that sealed its historic significance.

Employing modern technology, film, archival materials, scale models, and interactive displays, the museum provides a 90-minute tour that vividly brings the history of this iconic ship to life.

 

Belfast City

The tour schedule includes a minimum of 30 minutes for participants to enjoy Belfast's city centre. This provides a pleasant pause from sightseeing, allowing time to recharge before the return trip to Dublin. It also offers an opportunity for shopping and grabbing a bite to eat.
