Check in at 9:00 am outside Jurys Inn (Great Victoria Street, BT1 6DY) before departing Belfast at 9:15 am heading north towards Carrickfergus Castle.
A 30-minute journey up the coast brings us to the Norman-era Carrickfergus Castle. This makes a perfect 10-minute photo stop with its stone walls and ancient harbour, after which we depart along the fabulous Antrim Coast.
Antrim Coast & Glens
As we head north towards Giants Causeway we pass through the spectacular Glens of Antrim. Our journey takes us through the coastal villages of Ballygalley, Glenarm, Carnlough and Cushendall before climbing Glencorp, crossing Glendun’s Charles Lanyon Bridge and descending into the town of Ballycastle en route to our next stop.
The stop at Portaneevy Viewpoint provides an opportune moment for a 15-minute photo stop. The location provides picturesque views overlooking the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and clear views of Northern Ireland most northerly point, Rathlin Island. Following our photo stop, we make the short trip to Bushmills.
In the small village of Bushmills, we find the oldest working distillery in Ireland, which for over 400 years has kept to the philosophy that hand crafting small batches is the way to produce beautifully smooth tasting Irish whiskey. The village itself is home to the Bushmills Inn restaurant is one of the most idyllic and best places to eat in Northern Ireland, making this an excellent stop for lunch before our onward journey to the Giants Causeway.
The world-famous basalt columns of the Giants Causeway is our main stop of the day. Make your way down and explore the columns for yourself or climb the Shepherd’s Steps and hike along the cliff-top trail to get a bird’s eye view. The award-winning Visitor Centre also lets you unlock the mystery and stories of the landscape in the exhibition area.
The Dark Hedges is an avenue of beech trees along Bregagh Road between Armoy and Stranocum. They are the most photographed spot in Northern Ireland, also featuring in the award winning TV series, Game of Thrones. This makes them a perfect spot for a final 10-minute photo stop on our homeward journey.
Our day comes to an end as we arrive back in Belfast between 5.30pm and 6.00pm where we wish you farewell and hope you enjoyed your day with us.
