What makes this tour special
This private day tour will let you experience the best of the north Antrim coast, from death-defying rope bridges and amazing seascapes, to imposing castles and whiskey distilling.
• Be picked up by your private guide at your hotel room and whisked away. • Travel to the iconic Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, where you will have the chance to cross it. • Discover the geological delights and mysteries of the Giant's Causeway. • Marvel at Dunluce Castle sitting precipitously on the edge of a cliff. • Enjoy a glass of aqua vitae after a tour of the Bushmill's Distillery. • Relax on a scenic drive back to your hotel.
Your route takes you through the rugged landscape of the Antrim plateau and in just over an hour, you will arrive on the wild north Atlantic coast and the famous rope bridge of Carrick-a-rede. Completely safe for you to cross, though not recommended if you have a fear of heights, the bridge spans 66 ft and is 98 ft above the rocks below, connecting the land to the volcanic plug island used by salmon fishers for centuries. A short drive will then bring you to the dramatic Giant's Causeway, an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. Forged by tremendous volcanic activity, these hexagonal columns, some as tall as 12 metres (39 ft), can be clearly seen within the cliffs and down to the exposed tops of columns at the cliff foot, before disappearing below the sea. According to legend, the columns are the remains of a causeway built by a giant but make up your own mind!
After lunch at a spot recommended by your guide (price not included), travel the short distance along the coast to striking Dunluce Castle, sat precariously on the edge of a cliff. Pay close attention, as you may recognise this 500 year old castle as Game of Thrones' Pyke Castle! Afterward, head inland to the village of Bushmills, an area with a tradition of whiskey distilling stretching back to 1276. Enjoy a tour of the Old Bushmill's Distillery, the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world, then relax and savour a whiskey tasting, while reminiscing over your eventful day before the drive back to your hotel.
Note: On this tour you will be walking on uneven ground and requires sturdy footwear. Weather can be unpredictable in Northern Ireland and it is always a good idea to bring some sort of rain jacket.
