Good itinerary

Spent the most time at Giants Causeway, which was the highlight of the trip. The rope bridge itself is underwhelming but the view is amazing. The tour bus experience itself could have been better. The bus left us behind at one of the sites. Driver decided to take off a bit earlier with the other passengers to grab food. Left us stranded for over 20 minutes past the agreed meet time. Gave us a scare. Another slightly annoying thing not clearly communicated is that the final drop off point is not the same as the initial pick up place. We had made dinner plans at a particular place under the assumption we'd be dropped in the same neighborhood. Was not the best way to end the tour especially after a long day without lunch.

Rocks were totally unique, nothing like this anywhere else. Rope bridge was OK. Not so unique, but good anyway.

Ireland Trip

Ok we had a good tour guide but there were a few issues. We did not get the big roomy bus since there were not enough people. Then there are not enough warnings about weather issues on the website. Since it was to windy the rope bridge was closed,. That's half the trip! Got stuck going into Belfast instead. I really didn't want to but didn't have much choice. If I knew ahead of time I would have check the weather and canceled this trip and done something else. Beware!

Thanks to Eugene for doing the driving anf getting to all the sites safely and on time on this long day trip (~12hours). We were blessed with beautiful weather for our trip. There was plenty of time allowed at each location, a comfortable coach and food spots. Lunch at the Giants barn was also excellent.

Outstanding Tour Guide Eugene

Our Tour Guide, Eugene made the Tour! He was the best by making it possible for us to visit the Rope Bridge and have the experience in the afternoon based on the weather that day. This was important as we were visiting Ireland specifically to take this tour of northern Ireland; so if we didn't see it then, we were never going to see it. Wonderful trip! Highly recommend it and hope that Eugene is your Tour Guide. Note to Eugene: I apologize for rushing off the bus to start walking back to our hotel to ensure we arrived in time for our dinner reservation without thanking you personally for the wonderful job you did driving and guiding our tour and sharing your stories along the way. Thank you Eugene. It was wonderful meeting you and for giving us a wonderful tour that we will always remember. Note to Viator: The experience would have been better if we would have gotten an email from you the day prior to the start of the tour that informed us that we would be on the "Darby O'Gill" bus vice the CityScape Luxury Tour Bus which was was stated on the tour voucher. I had to spend time calling Viator to find out who/what bus we should look for. Viator did reply with an email late in the evening (to late for me to read). The next morning have to leave very early for tour, there was not time to read email. Thank goodness, Eugene approached us as we were the only ones left at the meeting area as we stood waiting the CityScape tour bus for 20 minutes. So Viator, you need to do a better job as keeping customers informed earlier than late night the day before only because I contacted you.

Absolutely amazing! Incredible walks, tremendous views! We had beautiful weather! The crowds were civil, however there was such a diversity in the visitors, English was not heard often and the "rules of the road" were difficult yo read.

Great sights, okay tour guide

We went on this tour from Dublin, which made the trip there and back again a bit lengthy, but the Giants Causeway, the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and the Dark Hedges were absolutely worth it. The views are stunning and the landscape is beautiful. The tour gives you the advantage of having allotted time slots for the crossing of the bridge, which minimizes waiting time. Our tour guide was friendly and very talkative, sometimes a little too much so, but the details about the sights and about the history of Northern Ireland were interesting and informative. All in all, I would recommend this tour to anyone, who only has a day to spare to see the Giants Causeway and the surrounding sights.

We loved everything about the tour. The coach was clean and had extra leg room, the driver/guide was so kind and very helpful telling all the history as we were passing by, we had plenty time to visit the attractions, no rush whatsoever. Thank you, Eugene (hope I spelled that right :)) and thank you Darby O'Gill day tours.

Sit back and relax while they do the driving!

This was money well spent to get out of Dublin and not have to worry about driving around. The only reason that I would've done this trip on my own is to not "waste" the three hours driving back to Dublin, those could've been spent traveling somewhere in the north instead. The coach was super comfortable and easy to find. The only thing to note is that they tell you that they have wifi on the bus, but once you're in Northern Ireland, it doesn't work and since a good chunk of the drive is in the North, you don't have wifi for all that long.

Do This If You Do Nothing Else!!!

I saw a picture of the GC and had to visit. It is so unique. Even if you’ve see volcanic rock or mountain ranges, this will astound you. It begins with beautiful hills showing craggy rock in places and extends to the beaches and rock walls. And they look columnar, as though someone molded them. My 18-year-old niece and I went and she was overwhelmed-just wanted to keep walking the trail or climbing on the rocks.Then lunch and on to the rope bridge, which I did not cross but she did and loved it. We went with City Scape tours and our Guide, Eugene, provided an excellent history of the areas through which we passed, particularly Belfast. I was a young adult during the troubles and it was fascinating to hear the history of it while being in the city where it began.

This was such a beautiful place to see. We enjoyed it very much. The bus driver was great as he was very patient when we hit a lot of traffic going back to Dublin. I highly recommend this tour!
