Description

This tour picks you up from Dublin at 6:45 am. It then takes you to some of Northern Ireland's most memorable Game of Thrones® filming locations. Stop by the Dark Hedges, where you'll have around 15 minutes to stroll beneath the dramatic arched trees, snap photos of the natural wonder, and hear from your guide why it was chosen for the scene of Arya's nail-biting escape from King's Landing.

As we drive from the Dark Hedges to our next location, we follow the Antrim Coastal Drive. Enjoy the spectacular scenery including stony shores, densely wooded glens and the village of Bushmills, which is best associated with Bushmills whisky.

The tour then continues along the Antrim Coast to the Giant's Causeway, UNESCO World Heritage Site. Spend around 1.5 hours admiring the spectacular landscapes, made up of some 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. The “stepping stones” leading from the cliff foot disappear under the sea. They reappear in the Island of Straffe in Scotland, hence the legend that this was a road built by the Irish giant Finn McCool to enable him to cross over to Scotland. Truly an amazing wonder of the world!

We then continue on to the picturesque coastal village at Ballintoy Harbour, where you'll have around 40 minutes of free time. Hear how Ballintoy Harbour served as the location for Theon Greyjoy's return to the Iron Islands, as well as scenes, such as Theon's baptism, Euron's crowning, and the burial of Balon Greyjoy.

Passengers also get a chance to visit Larrybane Quarry. This is where King Renly set up a camp during The Stormlands in season 2. It is also where the yournament was held in which Brienne of Tarth was introduced.

In Belfast you'll have around 45 minutes of free time to admire the city sights, stretch your legs, or grab some snacks. Your tour ends back in central Dublin around 7:30pm/ 8:30pm.

Was a great trip! The weather was really bad but outside our control so we made the best of it. Our tour guide Leisha was really knowledgable and I definitely learned a lot about Ireland and Northern Ireland. Our driver Eurie took us there safety and back in horrible weather. Sorry but I’m sure I’ve spelt both names wrong. Anyway we still had a good time. Will do the tour again in the Summer when the weather is better.

Yuri and Kevin did a fantastic job shuttling is to Northern Ireland and the famous Giant’s Causeway. Lots of great history and information about the sites! The tour was well-timed with nice stop lengths and adequate opportunities for food or restroom stops.
