Upon arrival, guests can see one of Belfast’s most well-known landmark, the two Harland & Wolfe Cranes which are nicknamed Samson and Goliath.
Leaving Belfast we take the coast road north from here. We continue on passing the coastal villages of Glenariff, Cushendall and Cushendun. There are stunning views of the sea to the right and the mountains or the Glens of Antrim to the left. You can even glimpse the Scottish coast on a clear day.
We have a lovely lunch stop at the Fullerton Arms in Ballintoy for a delicious pub grub style lunch.
The highlight of the tour is definitely a visit to Giant’s Causeway, Irelands only World Heritage Site. Spend some time climbing over the ancient stones, snapping some photos, and enjoying the myths and legends that surround this world famous attraction. We then re-board our luxury coach, and make our way along the coast, for one last short stop at the ancient ruins of Dunluce Castle.Leaving the Giant’s Causeway, we head back to Belfast where you have your overnight stay.
