" I would recommend this tour hands down!"

Jan 2020 by Rebecca

My friend and I had a great experience on this tour. Everyone we worked with was very helpful and friendly. Our bus driver Patrick was totally great, and the folks at the Railtours were also great! We did this tour upon arriving in Ireland and I was nice to know we didn't have to plan or do much more than just show up on time. Hotel accommodations were great as well. I would recommend this tour hands down!


"So easy! Great guides"

Oct 2019 by Kelly C

So easy! Great guides, very comfortable with wonderful sight seeing:)!! I would highly recommend taking this tour from Dublin to Northern Ireland.


"They really made the trip great"

Oct 2019 by Barbara R

This was a fantastic trip. Everything was well organised and on schedule. Our railtours guide Peter was great as was Paul who was our driver and guide in Northern Ireland (Mc Comb's). They really made the trip great - it was the best day trip we had (out of 4). Will definitely use railtours ireland again.


"The organization was top"

Aug 2019 by Vanessa et Christophe

Thank you for the railtour to the Giants of causeway. The organization was top, the trip by Train and bus was very long but it 's worth considering the beauty of the country.

"Giant's Causeway was a terrific experience"

Apr 2019 by AquatenniiaT

Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, and more with RailTours Ireland!

Sean was a wonderful guide on the railways. He took care of our small group, answered our questions, and treated us with the utmost kindness. No service was too large or small! Our driver was quite a comedian and also took good care of the group. Unlike in a different bus trip with a different provider, no one was left behind:) Northern Ireland was beautiful! Giant's Causeway was a terrific experience. The rope bridge was a thrill for DH. The quick driving tour of Belfast was informative. Dunlace Castle was a nice stop for photos, too!


"A great way to see countryside and castles"

by Jomara Texas

From its beginning at Connolly Station in Dublin to the return that night the trip was always interesting. Observing the countryside, visiting castles, and walking the Giant's Causeway area was nice. Adding to the value of the trip was the information provided by the Railtours guide and bus driver. A layover of a few hours in Belfast gave time for an excellent meal.


"“Excellent service”"

by TlynVT

Giants Causeway

This is the first time I've booked with any tour company as I normally like to plan my own trips, but I have to say, Railtours Ireland just may have changed my travel experiences forever. They were wonderful! The planning and coordination involved in getting us from Dublin to Northern Ireland and back, all on schedule was truly amazing. I believe that they have their services absolutely fine tuned and would highly recommend them to anyone visiting Ireland. I wasn't unhappy with any aspect of the trip, from the first class train ride, to the comfortable coaches, the knowledge of the area by the guides, and the selection of the hotel stays. All wonderful. Great job Railtours.

DAY
1

The Giants Causeway

Belfast City Centre


Check-in is 20 minutes prior to Train Departure Time.

Check-in is located in the main concourse area of Connolly Station where our representative will be waiting for you in their bright yellow jacket!

 

Check in for 07:35 Departure from Connolly Train Station.

 

Arrive into Belfast Central Station for 09:45 where we will be met by our tour coach to continue on our journey along the Causeway Coastal Route, along Northern Ireland’s Antrim Coast. 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 proceed to the town of Carrickfergus for a short photo-stop and take the coast road north from here. Further north, we arrive at the fishing village of Carnlough, where we stop for about 15 minutes. 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.

 

Our next stop is the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. Traditionally fishermen erected the bridge to Carrick-a-Rede Island over a 23m-deep and 20m-wide chasm to check their salmon nets. Today visitors are drawn here simply to take the rope bridge challenge!

 

We then head for Dunluce Castle for a photo stop before arriving at the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage site, where we stop for about 2 hours. Leaving the Giant’s Causeway, we head back to Belfast where you have your overnight stay.
