Overview
Tick off Northern Ireland's top attractions in just one day during a stress-free tour from Dublin, ideal for travelers with limited time on the Emerald Isle. Included entrance fees and round-trip transport means you'll save time planning ahead, and convenient transport between dispersed landmarks such as the Giant’s Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge allows you to focus on the scenery rather than the roads. On this tour you will also visit the Dark Hedges and Belfast.
