You will be collected from your accommodation, cruise ship or port of entry by luxury car, then taken on a tour of Belfast, the city centre, the University Quarter and Titanic Quarter.

  • Take a tour of Belfast city, featuring Belfast City Hall, the University Quarter, the home of the Titanic Quarter with the stunning Titanic Belfast Museum, HMS Caroline and the giant cranes of the Harland & Wolff Shipyard. 

    Then your tour joins the stunning Causeway Coastal Route, started in 1832 to connect Belfast to the coastal communities of the North East and completed in 1842. Gasp in amazement at the sea views, the mythical nine Glens of Antrim, beautiful coastal villages including Glenarm with its enchanting gothic castle, Carnlough with its tranquil limestone harbour and Cushendall. Stop at historic Ballycastle where you can enjoy a seafood lunch of locally caught fish.

    Journey further north where you can appreciate an amazing birds-eye view of Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge from the clifftop promontory of Portnareevy (visiting the bridge is an option but allow up to three hours and have good fitness levels). A short time later we will arrive at the Giant’s Causeway where you can take the cliff-top walk to truly appreciate this natural wonder, then visit the unique geometric stones themselves as they fall away into the Atlantic Ocean.
