Tours of Ireland
Castles & Stones
Just think – in a single day, you can get to know this part of Northern Ireland like never before, and like no one else… except us locals, that is. We’ll take you on a tour of some of our most exciting, meaningful and historical sites along the Causeway Coastal Route. You’ll walk in the footsteps of a legendary giant, and feel the wind steal your breath as you cross Atlantic waves on a rope bridge!
You’ll spend the day in the company of local people, and you’ll see it all through our eyes. With a local tour guide, driver, onboard storyteller who’ll share our ancient myths and legends, and generous and hospitable hosts at stop-offs, you’ll experience our unique sense of humour and be charmed by our warmth. By the end of the day, you’ll feel like one of us. In fact, don’t be surprised if you want to move here!
What’s different about this day tour is that we don’t just take you to the big visitor attractions, we introduce you to unexpected hidden gems too – sites and people you wouldn’t otherwise find, and experiences you will never forget. This is a magical trip and by the end of it, you’ll feel like you’ve been with us much longer than a day. You’ll feel inspired, enlivened and refreshed, and you might even feel a little spoiled, because we’ll take very good care of you every step of the way.

Lots of Exciting Activities
+ precious hidden gems!
Starting from Belfast City Hall or your Belfast city centre hotel, you’ll step onboard a luxury vehicle driven by a local, experienced and knowledgeable driver, and be personally welcomed and looked after by a local tour guide. Then you’ll settle in for your Castles and Stones experience! There’s over 50 miles of breath-taking Irish coastline to come, lined with ancient castles, fairy trees, steep cliffs, mysterious moors and picturesque towns and villages. This is the very scenery that inspired CS Lewis’s Narnia and HBO’s Game of Thrones® (there are so many Game of Thrones® filming locations here, it’s known as the ‘Home of Thrones’!).
You’ll visit Carrickfergus Castle, Glenarm Castle, Dunluce Castle, the Carrick-A-Rede (note: bridge crossing is weather permitting) and finish off at UNESCO World Heritage Site The Giant’s Causeway. Along the way, we’ll take you to some incredible hidden gems – places only locals know about!
As you travel, your guide will share the myths and legends of Ireland, with tales of fairies, giants, leprechauns and swans adding another fascinating dimension to the trip.
What a day… and what a memory.
