    What to Expect
    Day 1: Dublin – Belfast

    Make your own way to Connolly station in Dublin to meet your host and board your train to Belfast. Sit back, and enjoy the scenic ride along the eastern coast of Ireland. As you travel, listen to your host share fascinating details about the areas you pass by.

    On arrival in Belfast, receive a ticket to the Titanic Belfast visitor center and a hop-on hop-off bus pass. With the rest of the day free to spend at your leisure, the hop-on hop-off bus allows you to travel easily between Belfast’s top sights. Board your bus from any of the stops, and listen to the live or recorded commentary as you travel through the city, hopping on and off at your leisure. See the

    Itinerary for a list of stops.

    Perhaps hop off in the Titanic Quarter to redeem your Titanic Belfast ticket. See the dock where the cruise ship was built and wander around a reconstruction of some of the

    Titanic’s rooms. You can visit the Peace Wall, and leave your thoughts alongside those of the Dalai Lama, Justin Bieber,  and Bill Clinton.

    After exploring the city, check into your 4-star hotel in the city center.

    Overnight: 4-star Hotel

    Day 2: Belfast – Game of Thrones filming locations – Giant’s Causeway (B)

    Enjoy breakfast in your hotel, then travel by coach along the Causeway Coastal Route to begin your tour of sites from the TV show,

    Game of Thrones. As you travel, listen to your guide talk about the series that was adapted from George Martin’s

    A Song of Ice and Fire novels.

    Stop in the town of Cushendun to visit the caves where Melisandre of Asshai gave birth to her shadow baby. Hear tales of the power struggles and trysts between the noble families of Westeros, and learn about the exploits of King Joffrey Baratheon.

    Then continue on to Ballycastle to see where Varys was born as a slave in the Free Cities, and travel to the Dark Hedges. With its archway of intertwined trees, the road is one of Northern Ireland’s most photographed locations and the place where Arya Stark dressed as a boy to escape from King’s Landing.

    Head to the Fullerton Arms in Ballintoy for a pub lunch (own expense) before traveling to Larrybane where several major scenes were filmed.

    Your final stop is the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway. While it hasn’t been used in

    Game of Thrones, it's one of the Causeway Coast’s must-see sights. The captivating natural wonder consists of hexagonal rock columns that mysteriously fit together. Hop across the stones and hear myths surrounding them from your guide.

    After exploring Giant’s Causeway, board your coach and travel back to Belfast to catch your return train to Dublin.

    From start to finish, the whole experience was absolutely incredible! When we got to Belfast, we met with our guide who took us to our hotel to drop off our bags, and explained to us how the hop on, hop off bus worked. We got on that and went to the Titanic Museum. It’s really
