Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
This 2-day guided trip by train and comfortable coach includes an overnight stay in a 4-star hotel plus breakfast – a delightful and comfortable way to experience the city of Belfast and the natural wonders of Northern Ireland!
Day 1: Dublin – Belfast Meet your friendly host upon check-in at Dublin Connolly Station for your 1:20pm train departure, and head to your first destination – Belfast. When you arrive in the city, transfer with your guide by local train to your hotel on Victoria Street. You’ll have the rest of the afternoon and evening to get to know Belfast and explore as you like. Overnight: 4-star hotel in Belfast
Day 2: Belfast – Dublin (B) Enjoy breakfast among members of your tour group before pickup from your hotel. Then, board your comfortable coach for the world-famous Antrim Coast Road!
En route, cross the eye-catching greenery of the Glens of Antrim, a region that contains nine glens – or valleys -- which extend from the Antrim Plateau all the way to the coast. Stop in the lovely coastal town of Ballycastle where you can catch a glimpse of the Scottish coast on a clear day.
Next, head to the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, which spans 65 feet (20 meters) to the island of Carrickarede. Open from March to October only, you can walk across it for a small local fee. Follow the short footpath down and stop for stunning views along the way. Then hold onto the handrails and look down at the gorgeous blue water 98 feet (30 meters) below.
Continue to the stunning Giant's Causeway, renowned for its 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. It's fun to walk around atop the polygonal shapes, so be sure to wear good walking shoes. You’ll make a final photo stop at historical Dunluce Castle, whose medieval ruins teeter on the edge of a basalt outcropping over the sea, before your return to Belfast.
Catch your train to Dublin (snacks available for purchase on board), arriving back at Dublin Heuston Station at 10:15pm.
