Overview
Tick off Northern Ireland's top attractions in just one day during a stress-free tour from Dublin, ideal for travelers with limited time on the Emerald Isle. Included entrance fees and round-trip transport means you'll save time planning ahead, and convenient transport between dispersed landmarks such as the Giant’s Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge allows you to focus on the scenery rather than the roads.

Really good trip but like the rest of Ireland, prepare for wet, cold, and wind. Several good photo ops and the bridge was much better than expected. You have a lot of time to see the causeway and bridge. Almost too much time and Belfast is an interesting place to visit as well.
