Giant\'s Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge Day Trip from Dublin
Take the full Coastal route from Belfast to the Giants Causeway. Explore Ireland in a unique way that most people don\'t get to. See Ireland\'s only UNESCO World Heritage Site and embark on an unique guided day trip from Dublin and visit the beautiful location of Giants Causeway and venture across the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge.

Your tour will start in Dublin at 6:45 and head out to Belfast where you will get to spend up to an hour (either in the morning or the afternoon on the way back depending on traffic and other factors).

After departing Belfast, you will join the coastal route where you will pass through towns like Cushendall and Ballycastle and other towns full of history and stories en route to your next stop.

Here the brave will have the opportunity to cross the bridge (crossing fee not included). “Carrick-a-Rede” is an abandoned fishing island located just a few miles from the Giant’s Causeway. The name comes from the Irish, “Carraig a\' Ráid,” meaning “rock of the casting.” This 30m deep and 20m wide chasm is traversed by a traditionally built rope bridge which rewards the daring visitor with arguably the best views in the country! You will spend 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes here

You will then get to experience the beautiful location of Giant\'s Causeway for 1:45 to 2 Hours: This must-see World Heritage Site is Northern Ireland\'s most popular visitor attraction, and for good reason! You will have the unique opportunity to glimpse at the Irish landscape at its most idyllic: beautiful rolling hills, magnificent seascape and of course the awe-inspiring hexagonal/polygonal stone columns that form the legendary causeway itself, some of which reach 40 feet into the air. Formed in the aftermath of an ancient volcanic eruption, the causeway consists of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. Although this interlocking stone pattern stretches all the way to Scotland, nowhere is it more perfectly preserved than in Northern Ireland. The Giant’s Causeway was declared a world heritage site in 1986. According to the legendary story the causeway was formed when an Irish giant named Finn McCool ripped the earth from the ground, creating a pathway for a rival giant. Outwitted by McCool, this giant (named Benandonner) tore back to Scotland, wrecking the earth as he went.

You will then get to enjoy a photo stop at Dunluce Castle (5 minutes for a picture) before a quick 25 minute photo stop at the Bushmills Distillery where you will have enough time to taste the best whiskey in the world in the oldest licensed distillery in the world.

The final stop on your tour, the Dark Hedges will be a 100 minute stop. The Dark Hedges was planted 270 years ago by the Stuart family as a driveway to there mansion. This recognizable site was used in HBO\'s\' Game of Thrones\' series as the scene where Arya escapes while being taken to Castle Black.

Afterward, your tour will depart back to Dublin.
