Giant's Causeway: Walking Tour

1. Giant's Causeway: Walking Tour

Explore the unique and stunning Giant's Causeway with your knowledgeable and passionate guide. Listen to accounts of the social, economic, and cultural history of the area. You'll also learn about the wildlife that resides here as well as the flora and fauna in the area. The Giants Causeway is the only naturally created UNESCO World Heritage site in Ireland. It's located in the North East of Northern Ireland in County Antrim and is considered by many to be the highlight of their journey along the famous Causeway Coastal Route. The iconic landmark is best described as a natural pier of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns that are divided into 3 individual outcrops separated by dykes. Since the early 17th century it has fascinated geologists, inspired artists, and, from the mid 18th century onwards, has been an attraction for travelers from across the world. On this tour, you'll gain personal insights about those who live here, their ancestors, friends, families, and neighbors as well as the roles they played in shaping and forming this special place. The tour is composed of 'old world skills' and modern-day techniques that will help to explain the geology, outline the history, and keep alive the art of the storyteller in this fascinating area.

From Dublin: Giant's Causeway Tour and Whiskey Tasting

2. From Dublin: Giant's Causeway Tour and Whiskey Tasting

Meet your friendly guide and board the bus from the Dublin City Gallery in the early morning, then set out on a full-day adventure to Northern Ireland. Leave the busy city behind and head into the luscious, rolling countryside landscapes on your way to the first destination of the day, Bushmills Whiskey Distillery. Arrive at Bushmills, which is the world’s oldest licensed Whiskey Distillery, and meet their resident whiskey expert. Enjoy a tasting session of some of the distillery’s most beloved whiskeys, including a 10-year-old, 12-year-old, and reserve whiskey. Head to the idyllic Dark Hedges next, which is the most photographed natural phenomenon in Northern Ireland. Spend 20-minutes at the site taking photos, and learn about how the hedges were planted more than 270-years-ago by the Stuart Family as a driveway to their mansion. Continue the tour through the sprawling rural surroundings, stopping at the ruins of Dunluce Castle for a photo op. The next destination of the day is the iconic Giant’s Causeway, which is Northern Ireland’s most popular visitor attraction and a UNESCO World Heritage Listed Site. Enjoy 2-hours at the site, taking photos of the magnificent seascape and fascinating stone columns, some of which reach 40 feet into the air. Finally, spend at least an hour of free time in Belfast to explore at your own leisure and visit some of the city center attractions. Make the most of the opportunity to pick up a souvenir of your trip, or grab some snacks for the return journey to Dublin. At the end of an unforgettable day, sit back, relax, and enjoy a well-deserved on the way back to Dublin.

Fantastic tour. Well planned, well organized with a very knowledgable and funny guide (forgot his name; it was a very Irish name). The Causeway itself is gorgeous, a must-see if you are visiting Ireland. Love the whiskey tasting bit of the tour the most (of course!). We got to try different ones (already included in the tour price, no extra charges!) and have learnt a lot more about whiskey. Also got to stop at the Dark Hedges and Belfast, making the trip even more interesting. A long day but a fruitful one. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone seeking a full Irish experience. Make sure to put on your warmest jacket. We visited in Jan 2019. It was really cold once you got out of the bus. Thank you again for the amazing experience!

Sadly the trip I originally booked got canceled due to low attendance. The company gave me the option to cancel or book a different tour (which was the same tour except the whiskey tasting). The people were very helpful and apologetic about it. I choose the other tour and I do not regret it. It was amazing!!! Daniel (Guide) and Brian (Bus Driver) were great fun and made the trip seem like it was flying by. Daniel played music from Irish artists throughout the trip and talked about Irish history. It was a fun and informative trip.

Fantastic day out. Got lucky with the weather so enjoyed the causeway. But the whiskey tasting was the highlight for me. Best tour we took on our trip to Ireland. Fantastic guide and driver. Very well planned tour

It was absolutely fantastic! We had a tour guide called Steven who was so knowledgeable and told us all about the history of the old villages and shops that were along the causeway! He was fantastic!! 10 stars!!!

Was amazing more importantly our guide Shawn is amazing, funny and supportive.
