Excellent service with a very knowledgeable driver who made the day brilliant. He added extra stops on the way to allow passengers to remove masks for a while outside the coach.

Easy to book Lots of stops included with time to get off the bus at most and get pictures Lots of stops relating to Game Of Thrones so very interesting if you watch the tv show Our tour guide Phil was FAB! Really friendly, informative and attentive when one of our party needed very minor first aid. Definitely a packed day. Would do again

Booked last minuet. Was the cheapest option but did not fail to amaze. The driver was very helpful and gave detail as we went. Very windy day we went on but still some amazing destinations.

Tour Itinerary

Departure

The journey starts in Belfast, Northern Ireland’s capital, to explore mythical past of giants and folklore as well the realm of the seven kingdoms known from world-renowned book series and TV fantasy drama. As they depart, participants will see several well-known landmarks including City Hall, the Albert Memorial Clock and imposing mountain known as the Napoleon’s Nose.

First Stop

Carrickfergus Castle

See the best-preserved example of a Norman Castle on the island of Ireland; serving as a military fortress until 1928, the castle was built by John DeCourcy in 1177 and nowadays is considered an iconic landmark, a medieval snapshot of a bygone era.

Magheramourne Quarry

Just along the coastal path from Carrickfergus, the tour steps into the world of fantasy. Hopefully, no dragons or the army of the dead will make an appearance!

Glenarm, Carnlough and Cushendall

After leaving behind the Magheramourne Quarry, the tour will start to meander along the coastal path, allowing to experience picturesque scenery with the Irish Sea on the right and the Glens of Antrim on the left. The tour will be then winding its way through several quaint coastal villages including Glenarm farm - heaven for salmon fishing with its haunted castle, Carnlough with its recognisable harbour, Cushendun - the home of the cave known from the fantasy drama series, as well as Cushendall and its distinctive red Curfew Tower.

Ballycastle

Then the tour will start the steep and winding climb up Glencorp and cross the Glen Dun Viaduct Bridge before ascending to the top of Glen Dun itself and coming back to sea level in Ballycastle, the home of the 400-year-old Oul Lammas Fair and the birthplace of actor Conleth Hill who portrayed Lord Varys.

Second stop - Carrick-A-Rede: This death-defying rope bridge was first erected by salmon fisherman almost 350 years ago and is suspended above a 100ft drop into the rocky Atlantic Ocean below and spans 65ft and is 3ft wide. Please note, the admission price is not included in the tour but discounted tickets are available from the driver. The attraction is closed during inclement weather. The former quarry at Larrybane is just adjacent to the Rope Bridge.

Third stop - Giants Causeway Participants can imagine how it is like to a giant as they follow in their footsteps and explore the awe-inspiring outdoor museum and stare in wonder at the perfectly shaped 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns that are estimated to be a staggering 60 million years old. Whether believing the geological explanation of a volcanic eruption or indulge in the folklore of exploits of giants Finn MacCool and Benandonner, either way, guests remember this geological phenomenon.

Fourth stop - The Dark Hedges: The avenue of 94 beech trees align to provide a majestic canopy and backdrop.
