This memorable Aidavita Belfast cruise excursions full-day tour with Diamond Chauffeurs Ireland shore excursions will enable you to discover some of the finest scenery Northern Ireland has to offer, from the rugged cliffs of the coast to the magical beauty of the Glens, you will see all this and much more besides.
From Belfast you travel via the Antrim Coast Road (Causeway Coastal Route) to reveal an unrivalled seascape, towering cliffs, white sandy beaches, tranquil glens and lush forest parks, as you make your way from the Aidavita northwards. You will be delighted as you travel around each bend in the road as pretty fishing villages or dramatic headlands come into view. On a fine day, from the magnificent vantage point at Fair Head and Murlough Bay you can enjoy uninterrupted views of Scotland’s Mull of Kintyre, as well as the wild and mysterious island of Rathlin, just seven miles off the coast.
A stop will be made at the Portaneevy viewing point high above Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge. Spanning a chasm some 88ft (27m) deep, its construction once consisted of a single rope handrail and widely spaced slats, which the fishermen would traverse across to catch salmon off the island. The white cottage is visible and I will tell you about the folklore / stories that have been passed down through the century’s.
Nearby is the Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland’s premier attraction, where for centuries visitors have marvelled at its majesty and mystery. The unique rock formations have for millions of years stood as a natural rampart against the unbridled ferocity of the Atlantic storms. The rugged symmetry of the estimated 40,000 stone columns never fails to intrigue and inspire. During your visit, you will enjoy the Causeway Visitor Centre completed during the summer of 2012 before boarding the ‘Causeway Coaster’ bus, which will take you to the Causeway itself for a self-guided tour using audio guides.
From the Giant’s Causeway we have many options and our tours on the website will help you chose. In the area of the Causeway you have Bushmills Distillery, the oldest licensed distillery in the world 1608. Irish whiskey is triple distilled giving it a very smooth distinctive taste. I can recommend this interesting tour as you will be surprised upon how the whiskey is made and the flavour, using different whiskey barrels from around the world is matured/distilled, also giving it, it’s distinctive colour.
Afterwards we can chose between Dunluce Castle, Portrush Harbour Bar, Game of Thrones locations or Belfast sightseeing attractions, depending upon your cruise ship Aidavita departing port. Contact Diamond Chauffeurs Ireland to receive a quote or book an excursion.
