Giants Causeway Tours from Dublin
1 day tours from Dublin to the north of Ireland and the giants causeway
Giants Causeway 1 Day Tours from Dublin:
There is a new tour that leaves Dublin everyday from Dublin that goes all the way to the Giants Causeway in the North of Ireland. It is run by a company called Extreme Ireland and it leaves Dublin every day of the year.
This Giants Causeway tour leaves Dublin at 6:30 a.m. every morning and travels to Belfast where you will get a break for 30 minutes. You will then travel the famous coast road from Larne all the way to Ballycastle.
This road compares to the Great Ocean Road!
When you leave Ballycastle you will be looking over towards Scotland and the Mull of Kintyre, looking over via Rathlin Island, the island where nearly a war between Ireland and Scotland took place over ownership! Ireland won because there are no snakes on the island, thus it must belong to Ireland!
This 1 day tour from Dublin to the Giants Causeway then goes to the famous Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge where you will walk nervously over the bridge to the little island that used to be used for salmon fishing.
After lunch you will then head to the UNESCO heritage site the Giants Causeway where thousands of hexagonal shaped rocks dot the landscape and you will be walking on the steps of giants as this was according to local legend created by the giant Fionn Mac Cool when he challenged a giant called Benadonner in Scotland to battle. However Fionn decided it was probably wise not to fight him after he seen him as he was much bigger and instead tricked Benadonner into believing that Fionn was much bigger and eventually Benadonner scared terribly left for Scotland ripping up the causeway as he went so Fionn couldn’t follow him! Looking over to the Mull of Kintyre you will see the same rock formations over there as well, adding some sort of truth to the story!
When you are finished here, you will make your way back to Belfast where you will spend an hour travelling around this historic city learning about its history and the conflict that enveloped it for so many years.
Extreme Ireland charge €65 euro for this amazing 1 day tour from Dublin to the Giants Causeway. You should join in and be part of it!
If you do decide to join up for it ask for the guide Joey, he’s brilliant!
