What To Expect
When you have done and seen everything there is to do in Dublin, why not have a change of scene and visit Northern Ireland and the great city of Belfast (just 2 hours away)?
See the 'Belfast Peace Wall' (one of Ireland's 7 wonders) and travel through the amazing northern countryside. You will stop at many areas of outstanding beauty and historical significance along the way.
Sit back and enjoy the view as your experienced guide shares stories of old and interesting tales about Northern Ireland and its history. Each of our guides are unique and will add their own knowledge of the area and make your tour one to remember.
Upon arriving in the city of Belfast, we'll begin your introduction by giving a political and historical guided tour of the city which includes a visit to the Republican Museum along with a photo stop at The Belfast Peace Wall (a 25-foot wall which separates the Catholics from the Protestants). You will then have some free time to explore the vibrant city centre and have lunch in one of the restaurants and pubs which fill the city. We'll then visit the birthplace of 'RMS Titanic' at the Belfast dockyards before we set off for some more exciting stops.
Before we cross back over the border we have some more amazing sites to show you, not least the town of Downpatrick, (meaning Patrick's stronghold) the last resting place of the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick.
We'll then proceed to the seaside village of Dundrum where we will show you the great Norman castle there. Then, head up to Northern Ireland's mountain range for the opportunity to see Slieve Donard, Mourne's highest peak. As we drive down the coast we will stop at Ross' Monument dedicated to the man who burned down the White House set on a beautiful stretch of coastline.
We then hit the road back down south and cross back over the border while we reminisce about our day's adventure to Northern Ireland.
