Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Dunluce Castle, 87 Dunluce Road Co. Antrim, Portrush BT57 8UY Northern Ireland

Dunluce Castle (from Irish: Dún Libhse)[3] is a now-ruined medieval castle in Northern Ireland. It is located on the edge of a basalt outcropping in County Antrim (between Portballintrae and Portrush), and is accessible via a bridge connecting it to the mainland. The castle is surrounded by extremely steep drops on either side, which may have been an important factor to the early Christians and Vikings who were drawn to this place where an early Irish fort once stood.

We can stop to look at this beautiful ruined castle and for photo opportunities.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: The Dark Hedges, off Bregagh Road, Ballymoney Northern Ireland

The Dark Hedges is an avenue of beech trees along Bregagh Road between Armoy and Stranocum in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The trees form an atmospheric tunnel that has been used as a location in HBO's popular television series Game of Thrones, which has resulted in the avenue becoming a tourist attraction.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, 119A Whitepark Road, Ballintoy BT54 6LS Northern Ireland

Price to cross the bridge is £9 per adult or £4.50 per child.


Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge was first erected by salmon fishermen in 1755.Trace the line of coast over windswept grasslands and winding rocky paths to Carrick-a-Rede ropebridge. As you cross the bridge, you’ll get a bird’s-eye view of the clear green water and ancient caverns far below – if you dare to look down!

Carrick-a-Rede, from the Scottish Gaelic 'Carraig-a-Rade' meaning "The Rock in the Road" - an obstacle for the migrating salmon as they searched for the river in which they were born.

Atlantic salmon has been fished at Carrick-a-Rede and Larrybane since 1620. But it was not until 1755 that the first rope bridge between the mainland and Carrick-a-Rede Island was erected to reduce reliance on a boat to reach the island.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Caves of Cushendun, Cushendun Northern Ireland

Cushendun where you’ll find Cushendun Caves.

Made famous by Game of Thrones® in Season 2 Episode 4 – the caves were formed over a period of 400 million years, and recognisable to fans as the Shadow creature’s birth site.

Located nearby, nestled at the foot of Glendun – one of the Nine Glens of Antrim – is the village of Cushendun, designed in the style of a Cornish village by eminent architect Clough Williams-Ellis.

This designated conservation area is where you’ll find the beloved sculpture of ‘Johann’ the goat – a famous Cushendun resident

Was nice to get out of the City on this day tour. Not very impressed by Giant’s Causeway. Steep hill walking down to rocks. There is a bus to take you back up or you can walk. Cliffs and water were nice view. Just not much to it. I have never watched Game if Thrones so no
