Covering both southern and northern parts of Ireland and blending history, legend and breath-taking scenery, this day tour from Dublin is an enthralling experience. Hop on the train to Belfast and travel north past rolling farmlands, splendid sea views and quaint fishing villages to visit the historic town of Drogheda, Dundalk, Carrickfergus and Dunluce Castle and the iconic Giant’s Causeway!

To join the exciting Giant’s Causeway and Glens of Antrim Tour From Dublin, make our way to Connolly Station in Dublin and depart northwards through the Dublin suburbs, which soon gives way to beautiful farmlands. The track then swings inland to Drogheda and crosses the historic river Boyne by a magnificent viaduct, with great views of the town. 

On arriving at Belfast – Ireland’s second-largest city, you will board a coach for the tour to the Antrim Coast and the Giant’s Causeway. One of the city’s principal landmarks can be seen upon arrival – the two Harland & Wolff Cranes – nicknamed Samson and Goliath. It was here that many great ships were built – most notably for White Star Line, whose ships included the Olympic, Britannic and (perhaps the most famous ship of all), RMS Titanic.

Further north, you will reach the fishing village of Carnlough which has gained a lot of popularity ever since it was featured in HBO’s hit-series Game of Thrones as Braavos in Season 6!

Leaving the Giant’s Causeway, you will head back to Belfast via the main road in time to take the train back to Dublin with the tour concluding at Connolly Station.
