Departing from the pier in Belfast, you will travel to Larne to join the Antrim Coast Road. From there you'll enjoy a relaxing, 3-hour drive through gorgeous vistas of windswept coastline, unrivaled seascapes, towering cliffs, white sandy beaches, tranquil glens and lush forest parks. You will see along the way beautiful fishing villages and dramatic headlands. On a good weather day you'll see uninterrupted views of Scotland’s Mull of Kintyre, as well as the wild and mysterious island of Rathlin, just seven miles off the coast. Then, take advantage of a photo stop at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge viewing point, which also offers you a chance to stretch your legs. Continue your drive along the coast with an additional photo stop at Dunluce Castle, and then enjoy lunch at a local hotel. Next, you will visit the Giant’s Causeway — a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This causeway is a remarkable landform that takes its name from the legend of the giant Finn MacCool. For centuries, visitors have marveled at the majesty and mystery of the causeway — a natural rampart against the unbridled ferocity of Atlantic storms. Upon arrival, you'll stop at the Visitor Centre at the Giant's Causeway. This interpretative center allows visitors to ponder how the causeway’s 40,000 basalt stones were formed while finding inspiration in its rugged symmetry, listening to stories about the area's rich mythology, history, geology, and flora and fauna. Return to Belfast via the inland route of Bushmills and Ballymena — a 90-minute drive.
