Full Itinerary
Day 1:

London to Dublin


Check-in London Euston Station at the Network Rail Mobility Assistance Reception for 09:10 departure of your Virgin Train direct to Holyhead. You will be met by your Railtours Ireland host and escorted into your reserved seats. Your train, complete with snack car / bar will speed through the heart of England and along the North Wales coast to reach Holyhead in just 3 hours and 40 minutes. Holyhead rail station is also the cruise ferry terminal so after a short bus transfer to the berth you walk onto the ship – The Irish Ferries ‘Ulysses’ to Dublin, ship weighing 55,000 tonnes. Enjoy an invigorating 3 hours and 15 minute voyage across the Irish Sea to Dublin. Facilities on board ship include a range of restaurants and bars, a 2-screen cinema and a traditional promenade deck, from where you can enjoy the fresh sea air.
Arrive into Dublin 17:25pm where you will be welcomed by your Railtours Ireland host and transferred to your four star standard hotel in Dublin City Centre for a 3-night stay.

Day 3:

The Giants Causeway


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

Customer Service Desk at Connolly Station where our Check-In representative will be in their yellow jacket!

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.

Lunch stop is at Bushmills Distillery – lunch is not included and a tour of the distillery is not possible due to time restrictions.

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.

Returning to Dublin Connolly Station at 22:15hrs.
