Day trip to the Giant's Causeway from Dublin

We did a tour on the train and then a bus from Dublin up to Northern Ireland. It is interesting how people's perspectives of different countries are formed, especially when those people are literally on the other side of the world. My Grandmother thought we were silly to venture into Northern Ireland and maybe 20 years ago when she was in the UK that was a valid point but today it definitely isn't. We probably only had 8 hours in total there but loved every second of it. Belfast has the most amazing feel. Just so vibrant and on the move. That really shocked me as I wasn't expecting it at all. Then we did the bus trip up to the Giant's Causeway and encountered the most stunning scenery and amazing places. I definitely have to return to these places for longer!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Unbelievable feel about the place
  • Cons:The wind!!!
  • In a nutshell:I need to go back and spend more time in Northern Ireland

    Sounds like you had a great daytrip! The Antrim coast looks absolutly stunning! I'm glad I have booked accommodation for two nights in Ballintoy( near Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge) when I visit Northern Ireland later this year.
