"A great time on our Northern Ireland day tour"

Sep 2019 by Railtours Guest

"My sister and I had a great time on our Northern Ireland day tour. We were celebrating her birthday and our tour guide Paul with McCombs Coach Company, a partner of Railtours Ireland, was a terrific driver and a great tour guide. He made the time between stops tolerable with his interesting facts and great sense of humor. He also had a special surprise to commemorate my sisters big day. David with Railtours made sure we got from Dublin to Belfast with zero problems. Highly recommend the rope bridge and Giants Causeway! Great views! Thanks to Paul and David for making our trip memorable."


"This tour is well organized and it gives you plenty of time at the stops to enjoy.."

Jun 2016 by Steven P

This is a fantastic tour-starts with a train ride from Dublin to Belfast where a bus tour starts. Sean our guide was great and Patrick our bus driver was fantastic. He gave us so much history about the country up in the North of Ireland. Yes, the trip is long but so worthwhile-you see and learn so much. Our days were sunny so we explored the Giant's Causeway--this tour is well organized and it gives you plenty of time at the stops to enjoy the countryside. Highly recommended.


"The train ride was a better way to get to Northern Ireland, more leg room..."

Jun 2016 by Michelle P

The train ride was a better way to get to Northern Ireland, more leg room, small group, not as crowded as a bus. The bus from Belfast up the coast to the bridge then the Causeway was fantastic!! The driver was knowledgeable, funny and could give a brief political/religious overview without being political or biased, he promoted Belfast and Northern Ireland for more tourism. The scenery was incredible and weather was not horrible lol. The bridge, while pretty cool, was not a big as I expected, but the Giants Causeway was what I was really going to see.

"Was a wonderful tour! Great views along the coast"

Jun 2015 by Jenna G

Was a wonderful tour! Great views along the coast. We had a good amount of time at the rope bridge and plenty of time at the giant's causeway. The tour guide and driver were wonderful, gave us a detailed itinerary to help plan our time.

Dublin to Belfast


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 to return to Dublin.

 

Arriving at Dublin Connolly Station at 22:15hrs.

(Arrives at 20:15hrs Nov - Feb)
