  • Antrim Coast and Giants Causeway


    Duration 8 hours

    Leave Belfast at 9am (or time of your choosing) and travel along with majestic Antrim coast road, a road which stretches 29 miles and took 10 years to build from 1832 to 1842. Along this road, Ireland is at its nearest point to Scotland with a 12-mile stretch of water separating both countries and on a good day, Scotland is easily visible. You will drive through the sleepy and untouched villages of Glenarm, Carnlough and Cushendall with the beautiful backdrop of the Glens of Antrim (nine in total).

    Carrick-A-Rede Ropebridge
    Having driven for approximately one hour 45minutes you will arrive at the first stop; Carrick A Rede Ropebridge. Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge is a famous rope bridge near Ballintoy in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The bridge links the mainland to the tiny island of Carrickarede and people may cross it for a fee. Duration here is one hour 30 minutes. Restrooms and on-site restaurant are available.

    Giant’s Causeway
    The tour will then take you 20 minutes to Giant’s Causeway, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986, and a national nature reserve in 1987 by the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland. The tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea. Most of the columns are hexagonal, although there are also some with four, five, seven or eight sides. The tallest are about 12 metres high, and the solidified lava in the cliffs is 28 metres thick in places. Duration here is one hour 45 minutes. Hotel and visitor facilities are on-site.


    Bushmills Whiskey Distillery
    From the Giants Causeway, it is a short five-minute drive to Bushmills Whiskey Distillery. The Old Bushmills Distillery is a distillery in Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. All of the whiskey bottled under the Bushmills whiskey brand is produced at the Bushmills Distillery and uses water drawn from Saint Columb's Rill, which is a tributary of the River Bush. The distillery is a popular tourist attraction, with around 120,000 visitors per year.
    Restaurant, visitor facilities and restrooms are on-site. There is a 45 minute guided tour of the distillery, or alternatively you can have a tasting session.

    Dunluce Castle
    It is then off to Dunluce Castle (more of a ruins at this stage but still very impressive) Dunluce Castle is a now-ruined medieval castle located on the edge of a basalt outcropping 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.


    Royal Portush Golf Club
    For the golfers on board, you can take a sneaky peak at Royal Portrush Golf Club – always rated in the top 15 golf courses in the world and a first sight of this demanding course will indicate why this is.
    A demanding and exhausting day over, you will travel inland back to Belfast on a one hour 15 minute journey where Kudos will say goodbye to all on board and wish you a pleasant onward journey.

    • Visitor attraction fees
    • Refreshments and lunch

It tells the stories of the ill-fated Titanic, which hit an iceberg and sank during her maiden voyage in 1912.
