Day 02: The Giant's Causeway

Leaving Belfast, we proceed to the town of Carrickfergus for a short photo-stop and take the coast road north from here. We continue on passing the coastal villages of Glenariff, Cushendall, and Cushendun. There are stunning views of the sea to the right and the mountains or the Glens of Antrim to the left; you can even glimpse the Scottish coast on a clear day.

Our next stop is the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. Traditionally fishermen erected the bridge to Carrick-a-Rede Island over a 23m-deep and 20m-wide chasm to check their salmon nets. Today visitors are drawn here simply to take the rope bridge challenge!

Lunch stop is at Fullerton's Bar/Restaurant in Ballintoy – lunch is not included and as part of the tour cost. After lunch, we continue on to Bushmill's Whiskey Distillery, time dependent, where we have a quick 20-minute photo stop.

We then head for Dunluce Castle for a photo stop before arriving at the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage site, where we stop for about 2 hours.
