See the Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Dark Hedges, Dunluce Castle and Cushendun in one day on a trip from Dublin.
What to Expect
The tour itinerary includes Dark Hedges. These beech trees were planted in the 18th century by the Stuart family. After two centuries, they remain a beautiful sight and were even used in the HBO show Game of Thrones. You will also see Dunluce Castle, constructed in the 13th century and surrounded by steep drops on each side. It was said to be the inspiration for The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.
The Giant's Causeway is a World Heritage Site and the most popular tourist attraction in Northern Ireland. You have around 1.5 hours to explore and enjoy yourself with these hexagonal columns, and will see for yourself why this has been called the "8th Wonder of the World". You'll then spend around 1 hour 20 minutes at Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. In the old days, the fishermen used the rope bridge to help them catch salmon. The bridge has now been reconstructed so it's safe for people to cross. You can enjoy the view of Rathlin Island and over to Scotland after crossing the bridge. Crossing fee is not included. It is GBP 5 per person to cross.
Finally, Cushendun is a small yet beautiful coastal village that lies in one of the nine Glens of Antrim. You will also find Northern Ireland's most famous goat Johann's sculpture. The guide will tell you the story on the way.
