This tour is designed to be relaxing and laid back, bringing guests to only the best tourist attractions worth seeing and visiting, to make the most out of your day in Northern Ireland. Visit the Titanic Museum, the Dark Hedges and the Giant's Causeway.
Visit the Titanic Museum for around 1.5 hours and learn the story of the Titanic ocean liner and her ill-fated maiden voyage. The story comes alive with innovative technology, scale models and more. The museum expands over 9 galleries and draws together special effects, dark rides and full-scale reconstructions. The experience contains interactive features so you can truly explore the Titanic story in an insightful light. The journey will take you beyond the aftermath of the sinking to the later discovery of the ship. The tour will also take you to the present day with a tour of the live undersea exploration center.
Next, be prepared to be met by the most spectacular sight, Giant's Causeway. This wild and beautiful formation is a consequence of ancient volcanic activity, the solidified lava now layered across 40,000 hexagonal columns stretching for a distance of over 6 kilometers (about 3.7 miles). Stroll along this UNESCO World Heritage Listed Site for around 1.5 hours and see formations such as the Wishing Chair, and the Giant's Boot and Organ.
There is a different version of how the Causeway was formed. The Irish giant Finn McCool, while preparing for battle with his Scottish rival, is said to have angrily fired rocks into the sea to forge a path to nearby Scotland. However, on seeing the size of his would-be adversary, he quickly retreats tearing the ground and ripping the stones as he hastily moves. Similar types of stone found in Scotland give weight to this tale of two feuding giants. Even today the Causeway continues to stir the imagination and inspire folklore.
Stop at the Dark Hedges for around 20 minutes, a centuries-old lane of beech trees that have been featured in films and on television. In the TV series Game of Thrones, the Dark Hedges was featured in season 2 as the King's Road.
