Discover the world famous Giants Causeway and the beauty of the County Antrim coast, Northern Ireland.


Travelling in style, luxury and comfort, visit and discover the history of Carrickfergus Castle on the northern shores of Belfast Lough, built by John de Courcy in 1177 for his headquarters, after he conquered eastern Ulster. Moving north along the scenic, Antrim coastal road taking in the wonderful views and spectacular coastline, get a feel for Glenarm Castle and Estate, the ancestral home of the Earls of Antrim.

Sample and take in Carnlough Harbour which lies at the foot of Glencoy, discover this picturesque harbor in all of its glory! Take on the centuries-old challenge of walking the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge, if you dare! and finally, declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1986, we land at the Giant's Causeway, a truly breathtaking landscape of over 40, 000 interlocking hexagonal columns created by a volcanic eruption over 60 Million years ago, and hear some of the myths and legends associated with it.
