Tour Details

Escape to the picturesque Antrim Coast with this Ireland rail tour. This Antrim Coast tour brings you up close to some of Ireland's gorgeous natural landscapes and major landmarks, including the Giant's Causeway and Dunlace Castle. Prepare yourself for a day full of impressive sights and sounds.

Your Ireland tour begins in Belfast, where you'll depart for the famous Antrim Coast Road, a 25-mile stretch of land. This scenic route, which was completed in 1842, provides a glimpse at one of nature's finest works: the Glens of Antrim. This area, comprised of nine valleys, is filled with lush greenery, waterfalls, and other natural beauties that will have you reaching for your camera again and again. Once you've passed through the nine valleys, you'll stop for lunch on your own at the a distillery before stopping at the famous Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. Traditionally fishermen erected the bridge to Carrick-a-Rede Island over a deep chasm to check their salmon nets. Today visitors are drawn here simply to take the rope bridge challenge!

Then head for Dunluce Castle for a photo stop before arriving at the Giantís Causeway, which is comprised of roughly 40,000 interlocking basalt columns that visitors can use as stepping stones. Although its formation is attributed to a volcanic eruption, the site is not without its share of legends; one legend says that the path was made by a giant named Finn MacCool to confront another giant who had hurled insults at him. After taking in this awe-inspiring sight, you'll return to Belfast and subsequently Dublin. Enjoy the convenience of riding the rails of Ireland while you learn about the country's natural and cultural histories.
