CARRICK A REDE 
We spend an hour strolling along the windswept coastal path with amazing views to and from the rope bridge. Traditionally fishermen erected the bridge to Carrick-a-Rede Island over a chasm 23m deep and 20m wide, to harvest salmon from their nets. With views of the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland and Rathlin Island. 

GIANT'S CAUSEWAY
We continue along the coastal drive with fantastic views of Whitepark Bay and Portbradden. We visit the 37,000 basalt columns whose tops form “stepping stones” leading from the cliff foot and disappearing under the sea. They reappear in the island of Straffe, hence the legend that this was a road built by the giant Finn McCool to enable him to cross over to Scotland. Truly an amazing wonder of the world!

DARK HEDGES
One of the most popular natural phenomena in Northern Ireland, the Dark Hedges were used as a set for the hit TV series Game of Thrones. It was the famous King's Road in Season 2. The hedges were planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century. It was intended to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their home, Gracehill House. Two centuries later, the trees remain a magnificent sight and have become known as the Dark Hedges.

BALLINTOY
Small picturesque village, Ballintoy was an ideal location for several Game of Thrones sets. You will recognize the landscapes from season 2 that were used in some of the most crucial scenes in the series. 

COASTLINE VIEWS
We travel along the Causeway Coastal route between Ballycastle and Dunluce to experience one of the most dramatic drives in the world, now rated as one of the world's great road journeys. We transport you by windswept cliffs, spectacular scenery, and fabulous unspoiled beaches. 

DUNLUCE CASTLE
We continue a wonderful day with a photo stop at Dunluce Castle, home to the McDonnell Clan for many years and considered the most romantic castle in Ireland. En route we pass through Bushmills, famed for the fantastic whiskey, which is enjoyed all over the world. 

BELFAST 
Our next stop is Belfast City Center. Here you will have approximately 60 minutes of free time to enjoy and explore this Northern Ireland's capital before returning to Dublin for approximately 20:30 pm.
