01 Tour Highlights

Titanic Belfast

A fantastic self-guided exhibition that not only tells the iconic liner’s tale but shines a light on industrial Belfast, spread over 9 interactive galleries, with multiple dimensions to the exhibition, drawing together special effects, dark rides, fullscale reconstructions and innovative interactive features. Allow a minimum of 90 minutes for a self-guided tour. Guided tours and/or Education Workshops can be quoted for on request.

Giant's Causeway and Antrim Coast Road

Northern Ireland’s iconic World Heritage Site is home to a wealth of local history and legend. Explore the basalt stone columns left by volcanic eruptions 60 million years ago and search for distinctive stone formations fancifully named the camel, the wishing chair and the organ. The Antrim Coast Road is regarded as one of the finest coastal drives in the world and its outstanding natural beauty is used extensively in film and TV. This tour can include a stop to cross the rope bridge to Carrick-a-Rede Island – the Larrybane Quarry here was used as a film location for ‘Game of Thrones’.

Newgrange

Located just outside Drogheda, 1½ hours from Belfast, Newgrange dates from 3200 BC, making it older than the pyramids and Stonehenge. It consists of a number of burial sites and buildings, aligned to the sun. The site has a Visitors Centre which includes an extensive exhibition including a full scale replica of the chamber at Newgrange and Knowth. Your list will include a guided trip to Newgrange itself as well as admission into the Visitor’s Centre.
