Overview

Tour update:

The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge is currently closed, the tour will be visiting the Dark Hedges until it re-opens.

The Giant's Causeway is truly one of Ireland’s best natural wonders. There was extensive volcanic activity over 50 million years ago, the hot lava cooled resulting in the formation of over 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. There are a few examples of this phenomenon around the world but none as impressive as the Giant’s Causeway. Spend two hours exploring this fantastic attraction with its many notable features such as the Giants Boot, the chimney stacks, the Giant's Gate, and the honeycomb.

On our wonderful day trip, you also get to cross the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge. From this viewpoint, you are afforded spectacular coastal and ocean views. Also, on a clear day, you can see Scotland and have cliffs views that rival the cliffs of Moher for its beauty.

You have 75 minutes to explore Belfast or your driver can arrange for a political taxi tour (£15pp not included).

Irish Day Tours have received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 - and have a 96% rating - excellent or very good. This is due to our clean modern fleet of buses, our attention to customer service, and our excellent driver guides.

Throughout the day you will enjoy the unique humour, wisdom, and unbeatable knowledge of our guides. Furthermore, we will drive along some of the most breathtaking coastlines in Northern Ireland. In conclusion, our Giant’s Causeway tour is an incredible trip with memories to last a lifetime.

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.
