On arrival, we take in the highlights of Belfast on a panoramic tour passing the city’s famous sites.

Experience Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge and Dark Hedges
We uncover more of Northern Ireland’s beauty by visiting the famous Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, that was first erected by salmon fishermen in the 1700s, crossing the Atlantic Ocean to a fisherman’s cottage! Many people visit this bridge every year, to feel the creak of wooden slats in the rushing wind and see the waves swirling in beneath their feet - not one for the faint-hearted and therefore optional! After our visit to Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, we stop at a famous location included in the HBO television series “Game of Thrones” – the Dark Hedges! This enchanting avenue of beech trees between Armoy and Stranocum in County Antrim is now one of Northern Ireland’s most iconic and must-have, hot Instagram shots!
