WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY EXCLUSIVE TOUR?

Your chauffer-driven, luxury vehicle will meet you at the Belfast Cruise Ship terminal, in keeping with your arrival time. Sit back, relax and take in the views en route to the Giant’s Causeway. Our route today passes through the Glens of Antrim – where you can enjoy views of sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and even of the Scottish coast on the horizon!

Situated on the northernmost tip of Ireland, the Giants Causeway is a phenomenal sight – where natural history meets ancient Irish legend. The thousands of hexagonal columns of basal rocks are believed to have been formed during the aftermath of volcanic activity millions of years ago. However, this account of the causeway’s formation is somewhat disputed by Irish legend – which claims that ancient Celtic hero Finn McCool constructed the causeway as a battleground for his encounter with Scottish giant Benandonner. The interactive ‘Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre’ houses exhibitions dedicated to the history of the site, as well as a restaurant and gift shop selling locally-made crafts and souvenirs.

On departure from the causeway, we’ll make our way to Dunluce Castle for a short photo-stop. Situated on a dramatic cliff-top, a part of this historic ruin was lost to the sea during the 17th century – as a part of the walls decayed and fell over the cliff’s edge. The views out over the ocean are incredible – be sure to bring your camera!

We’ll make our way back to Belfast city – where you can experience highlights such as the City Hall, the River Lagan, Queens University, and the ‘Albert Clock’. Following your tour, you can sample some of the world-class shopping and dining that this buzzing metropolis has to offer*.

Enjoy your luxury chauffer transfer back to the cruise terminal in time for your ship’s departure.
