The guided Giant’s Causeway - Game of Thrones Tour visits some of Northern Ireland's most treasured sites. Visit the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO world heritage site. Visit the Dark Hedges and tour Dunluce Castle.
You depart early morning from Dublin heading north. We will have a comfort break on the way and then head into the Northern Irish countryside.
Along the drive you will visit the Dark hedges, a picturesque tree-lined road that looks as if it comes straight out of a story book. The Dark Hedges represents the King’s Road in the famous television series “Game of Thrones” and is an avenue of beech trees with branches hanging over the road.
Next you visit and cross Carrick-a-Rede rope-bridge which connects a 23m-deep and 20m-wide chasm between the mainland and a small island that has been used over the years by fishermen to place netting to capture migrating salmon. Following a 20 minute scenic cliff walk, you can traverse the bridge to the island with its abundance of bird life and to enjoy the spectacular coastal views from a different vantage point.
After lunch it is time for The Giants Causeway which is the highlight of the trip. This UNESCO World Heritage site consists of a series of over 40,000 hexagonal shaped rocks that looks like a grand set of stairs leading into the sea, the formation of which has been astounding generations. These awe-inspiring stones have resulted in inspiring many a myth and stories surrounding their origin, some of which your guide will be happy tell you in full technicolour.
After the amazing Giants Causeway you continue to the spectacular Dunluce Castle, precariously perched on the cliffside, once home of the notorious McDonnell clan. This tour includes a self-guided tour of Dunluce where you will get an insight to its fascinating history and the peerless family who owned it.
Finally, you will arrive back in Dublin at around dinner time to reminisce about your northern adventure.
