WHERE GIANTS ROAMED

Northern Jaunt


With an exploding food scene, hip cities and the stunning Causeway Coast Northern Ireland has a charm all of its own.

Day 1

Start in Dublin, heading north. Explore the Celtic high crosses in Monasterboice. Get medieval with a visit to Dundrum Castle before arriving in Belfast for the night.


Day 2

A day in Belfast, with guided trips to the Titanic visitor centre, the largest of its size. Explore historic Belfast with a black cab tour. Evening at your leisure. 


Day 3

Set off early in the morning heading north towards the spectacular Causeway Coast. Stop off at The Dark Hedges, from Game of Thrones before walking across Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge high above the waves. This is not for the faint-hearted. Arrive at the Giant’s Causeway, which legend has it was built by the mythological giant Finn MacCool. A stop at the Bushmill’s Distillery, the oldest licensed whiskey distillery in the world for a guided tour.

Day 4

Arrive in Derry/Londonderry for a walking tour of Ireland’s only walled city. After lunch cross the border again into Donegal visiting a ringfort and exploring the wild beauty of Glenveagh National Park.


Day 5

The final day of the tour will bring you to Slieve League, a mountain jutting into the Atlantic Ocean. With the highest sea cliffs in Ireland it is a spectacular sight. There will be an option to hike to the top, or for the lazier amongst us a boat trip around the cliffs. The final stop of the day will be to Donegal Castle, home to one of the most powerful Gaelic clans in Ireland from the 5th to the 16th centuries, the O’Donnell’s.
