The Dark Hedges and Dunluce Castle
After a picturesque drive through the rolling hills of Ireland, the first stop of the day are the Dark Hedges. Lined by centuries-old beech trees, the Hedges have been a setting of many films like Transformers and TV series like HBO's Game of Thrones. On the latter, the Hedges portrayed the King's Road which connected King's Landing to Winterfell.
Continuing through the land of Northern Ireland and Westeros you will next see the historic Dunluce Castle. This medieval stone fortress is full of history from the Vikings to the Spanish Armada. It is most famous though today as the home of House Greyjoy on the Island of Pyke in Game of Thrones.
The Giant's Causeway
Just down the road from Dunluce Castle you will arrive at the natural marvel that is the Giant's Causeway. Created about 50 million years ago from the cooling of Volcanic lava, the Causeway is a massive pathway of hexagonal stone structures that lead out from the cliffs into the Irish Sea. A geologically stunning area, it has become the setting for legends and mythology for ages.
At the Giant's Causeway you will learn the legend of the great Finn Mccool in depth. The Irish giant, Finn Mccool built the Causeway to Scotland only to discover that the giants in Scotland were not so friendly. Long story short (not to spoil your guides in depth rendition), Irish cunning prevailed and a Scottish giant destroyed the causeway in fear of the great Finn Mccool.
The Giant's Causeway is one of the most beautiful sights on earth. On a sunny day, you can look across and see the Scottish isles in the distance. Walk through the amazing structure, taking in the perfect symmetry of the columns, the amazing flora and fauna around, as well as that wonderful Irish breeze on the shore.
Before visiting it is hard to describe it's grandeur but once you've visited you are sure to always remember the great Giant's Causeway. Make sure to have your cameras ready for amazing views and of a large stone, that may or may not be the boot of one Finn Mccool.
The ocean liner RMS Titanic is history's most famous ship. Though it departed from Southhampton in England, the ill-fated boat was built in Belfast. A pride of the famous ship-building city, Titanic was seen as the future of travel. Today, on the site where the boat was built, you will visit the Titanic Experience.
At the museum and learning center, you will travel through the history of the Titanic from concept and building of the ship to the riders of the voyage, both victims and survivors.

This was a great trip. It was a little rainy, but not unexpected. Our guide was very good. Since it was raining we spent less time at the Causeway and went to the hotel for tea and a scone. Highly recommend stopping for a scone.
Wow! The Giant's Causeway was Amazing and Finn Mccool :)
Going into the day I did not know much about the giant's causeway. The area is absolutely beautiful, the rocks leading out as a path are so cool! Our guide was lots of fun and gave us so much info before letting us wander around the grounds. We also learned so much at the Titanic museum, definitely recommend it!
