Itinerary

Dark Hedges - around 20 minutes

You'll have chance to stop along the way to admire the  Dark Hedges, a key filming location for hit TV series Game of Thrones, for 20 minutes. The trees were planted 270 years ago by the Stuart family as a driveway to their Gracehill Manor. It is now very well known to amateur photographers.  

Dunluce Castle - around 10 minutes

Enjoy a photo stop at the beautiful Dunluce Castle. These Castle ruins are famous for being the best castle ruins in Ireland to photograph. Making the average amateur photographer look like a professional. The tour will include this stop only from the 12th of April until the 1st of September.

Giant's Causeway - around 1.5 hours

Enjoy around 1.5 hours to marvel at the spectacular landscapes at the Giant's Causeway, made up of some 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. It has often been described as the 8th wonder of the world. You will see why once you have visited the place. This is one of the world's greatest natural attractions. According to mythology, Finn built the Causeway as stepping stones to cross the Irish sea in order to battle Benandonner, a Scottish giant. Although a giant himself, when Finn reached Scotland he saw that Benandonner was almost twice his size, and immediately retreated with his rival in pursuit. Finn’s wife disguised him as a baby, and on seeing the child, Benandonner fled home fearing how enormous its father must be.
