Description

On this unique tour that picks you up right from your Cruise terminal, you will have the opportunity to choose between visiting the Titanic Experience Museum or the GAME OF THRONES™ TOURING EXHIBITION (open only from 11th of April to 1st of Sept).

At the Titanic Experience Museum, you can explore the symbolism of Titanic Belfast’s iconic structure with our tour.
Enjoy this great opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the men who built RMS Titanic, the world’s most famous ship, in Belfast's historic shipyard. During this tour, you will be able to see over nine interactive galleries, where Titanic Belfast experience will excite visitors with state of the art exhibitions, making use of special effects, rides and some amazing full-scale reconstructions. The is truly a museum not to be missed!

In alternative to the Titanic Experience, from the 11th of April until the 1st of September, you can opt to visit the GAME OF THRONES™ TOURING EXHIBITION. Featuring a unique mix of immersive environments, interactives, and multimedia content, this all-new exhibition drops fans into the centre of the Seven Kingdoms with an up-close and personal look at authentic props, costumes and set decorations from the hit HBO® series Game of Thrones®.
The second stop is photo stop at Carrickfergus castle. Built by the Anglo-Norman John de Courcy over 800 years ago, Carrickfergus Castle has long been the centre of a power struggle for those wanting to control the important port. The castle now houses historical displays as well as cannons from the 17th to the 19th centuries, there are ramparts, dungeons and even winding staircases with trip steps to deter any invaders.
After that you will see the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, photo and overview
(no crossing). This famous bridge near Ballintoy in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, links the mainland to the tiny island of Carrick-a-rede. It spans 20 metres and is 30 metres above the rocks below.
The next attraction on our list will be at Giant's Causeway for around 90 minutes. Legend says that Irish giant Finn McCool created the causeway to travel to Scotland and fight his rival Benandonner, but came back smartish when he saw how big he was. Aside from Irish mythical legends, the Giant’s Causeway consists of 40,000 interlocking hexagonal basalt columns along 6 kilometers (4 miles) of the northern coast of Northern Ireland, that was created by volcanic activity during the Tertiary, between 50 and 60 million years ago. In 1986 The Giant’s Causeway was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, and till this day it is one of the most famous attractions among tourist's in Nothern Ireland.
Last attraction will be a photo stop at the iconic ruin of Dunluce Castle which bears witness to a long and tumultuous history. First built on the dramatic coastal cliffs of north County Antrim by the MacQuillan family around 1500, the earliest written record of the castle was in 1513. The castle has been used as the setting for the villains lair in the film The Medallion with Jackie Chan in 2001, aswell as appeared in the artwork of the inner gatefold of the 1973 Led Zeppelin album Houses of the Holy.

Lastly a drive through Belfast on the way back to ship, if time allows depending on ship times, etc.
*As every cruise ship arrives at different times, there is no set departure time. In most cases, Belfast Harbour and the ship can only confirm the correct docking time a few days before the ship arrives. We will contact you via email to let you know the departure time of the tour. But in general, our coach will be there when the ship docks and you will be picked up just outside the clearance tent as you depart the ship.
