Overview

Drive just two hours north of Dublin, you end up in another vibrant city. Belfast – a city that sits in what is politically another country. Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, and so in two hours you can enter a different jurisdiction, so Pound Sterling is needed for spending money. This Belfast day trip from Dublin will allow you to see the great sights of Belfast and other significant gems of the North. Historical and natural treasures await you!

Our guides are knowledgeable and full of stories about Northern Ireland and its history. Therefore, you will learn about the history of rebellion, violence, and the journey towards peace in the region. Also, there are many more stories to tell about St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, great mountains and historical sites. If you’re lucky, they might even sing you a song.

First of all, visit East Belfast where we find the birthplace of the ill-fated RMS Titanic. Explore one of Ireland’s most visited attractions! Titanic Belfast extends over nine interactive galleries, with multiple dimensions to the exhibition, drawing together special effects, dark rides, full-scale reconstructions and innovative interactive features.

After the Titanic Museum we'll have lunch, followed by a quick visit to the Republican museum. You'll then be brought for an interesting political taxi tour of the Falls Road and Shankill Road. This was one of the most affected areas of Belfast during The Troubles, which led to the construction of the Peace Wall to divide Republicans and Unionists.

Take some free time to explore Belfast city centre and visit some of Belfast’s famous sites before returning to Dublin.

Finally, listen to some traditional Irish music as you relax on the coach after a full and exciting day - reminisce on your Belfast tour as we return to Dublin.

All adventures must come to an end, but take a look at our other day tours to continue your Irish adventures!

Additional info

We are a sustainable coach tour company, doing our best to promote a greener future. Over the past few years we have been taking steps to become more environmentally friendly by incorporating new sustainable practices. 

Our Eco journey:

- Ei Travel Group is eco certified

- We are a member of the Native Woodland Trust, who do tremendous work in protecting and preserving Ireland's woodlands. They are also committed to restoring Ireland’s original climax ecosystem which they are doing through the re-creation of woodlands, using native seed.

- We have solar panels installed in our bus yard where we have the garage and offices too. The solar panels make the yard net zero emmissions meaning all our day times electricity is covered by the solar panels. Solar panels are the cleanest form of energy generation, maintenance free and one of the most environmentally friendly technologies.

- The yard has a rain water harvestor which is used to wash all the buses. The harvestor collects the rain water, stores it, filters it and then it is used to wash the buses. 

- The coaches have telematics for eco driving techniques which provides a digital blue print of the vehicles operation.

- Multiple staff members within the company are 'Leave no Trace' trained. Leave No Trace Ireland is an Outdoor Ethics Education Programme which promotes and inspires responsible recreation outdoors.

-  By taking customers out on coaches we are taking a certain amount of cars off the road each year.

- All our coaches have Euro 6 engines in them. The Euro 6 emissions standard provides increased efficiency, clearner aid and reduced CO2. 

- We also have a very modern fleet which benefits the environment sustainability. 

We look forward to updating our customers on new practices we will introuduce along our Eco journey.
