Our Giants Causeway tour from Dublin is a fully guided tour to one of Northern Ireland’s more unique landscapes. With daily departures from Dublin City centre, this fully English language tour is the perfect way to explore one of the most fascinating coastlines in the world.
This Giants Causeway Day Trip from Dublin includes a number of spots along the way including two photo stops inspired by the TV series Game of Thrones. On this tour, you get to see Dunluce Castle, used as the House of Greyjoy, which is perched on the north Antrim Coast, and perfectly captures the atmosphere and intrigue of the medieval world.
From there you will pass Ballintoy Harbour, the location where Theon came ashore on Pyke Island, where Theon later rededicated his faith to the ‘Drowned God’, where Ser Davos seeks the help of Salladhor Saan for the Battle of Blackwater Bay, and where Gendry escapes Dragonstone in a rowing boat.
From there you then have the chance to visit the Giants Causeway, which of course is one of the highlights of this trip. The Causeway is a UNESCO World Heritage site consists of a series of over 40,000 hexagonal shaped rocks that looks like a grand set of stairs leading into the sea. This formation has been astounding generations. It is here you will get the all the information on the Giants Causeway facts, and should you have any questions after you 1.45 minute stop be sure to ask you Gray Line Ireland, local expert!
As your time in the Giants Causeway comes to an end, you then have a chance to cross the famous Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, where you all get the chance to walk on the wild side, some 30 metres above sea-level. It is here you have the chance to see some spectacular views of Rathlin Island and the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland.
And once you walk on the wild side comes to an end you have the chance to visit the most delightful and picturesque bay in the whole of Northern Ireland! Located along the stunning Northern Coast of Ireland lies Larrybane Bay & Headland, which used to stretch out towards Sheep Island. Its large limestone caves once served as a home to boat builders and as a safe haven from winter storms many years ago! And for all you Game of Throne fans out there, it too is where Lord Renly swears to Lady Stark he will avenge Ned Stark’s death, but alas, meets his own end at the hands of Melisandre’s shadow baby. Making Larrybane Bay & Headland a must-see for all looking to really experience the true nature of Antrim’s coast! You could even say that this is the best Dublin Game of Thrones tour on the market with a mix of Ireland and Game of throne all blended in one perfect day tour from Dublin!
