OVERVIEW BELFAST DAY TRIP FROM DUBLIN
Drive just two hours north of Dublin, you end up in another vibrant city. Belfast – a city that sits in what is politically another country. Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, and so in two hours you can enter a different jurisdiction so Pounds Sterling are needed for spending money. This Belfast day trip from Dublin will allow you to see the great sights of Belfast and other significant gems of the north. Historical and natural treasures await you!
Our guides are knowledgeable and full of stories about Northern Ireland and her history. Therefore you will learn about the history of rebellion, violence and the journey towards peace in the region. Also there are many more stories to tell about St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, great mountains and historical sites. If you’re lucky, they might even sing you a song.
First of all Visit East Belfast where we find the birthplace of the ill fated, RMS Titanic. Explore one of Ireland’s most visited attractions “The Titanic Belfast” . Titanic Belfast extends over nine interactive galleries, with multiple dimensions to the exhibition, drawing together special effects, dark rides, full-scale reconstructions and innovative interactive features.
Lunch then a quick visit to the Republican museum before being brought on an interesting political taxi tour of the Falls road and Shankhill road. This was one of the most affected areas of Belfast during the troubles which led to the construction of the Peace wall to keep republican and unionist factions apart.
Take some free time to explore Belfast city centre and visit some of Belfast’s famous sites before returning to Dublin
All adventures have to come to an end but take a look at our other day tours to continue your Irish adventures! Finally listen to some traditional Irish music as you relax on the coach after a full and exciting day and reminisce on your Belfast tour as we return to Dublin.

Belfast Day Tour is a must!
Anyone who goes to Dublin with a little time to spare should take the Belfast day trip. It's a quick 2,5 hours bus travel, with stops at the museum of the conflicts between British and Irish, at the HMS Caroline (a war ship built in the same fabric as the Titanic), at Belfast dowtown and at the Titanic Museum. It was worth every penny! Extra kudos to our guides, Barry and Jerome, who knew everything about everything we wanted to know (and more!)!
Belfast day tour from Dublin.
Excellent tour. Our driver was fun and was a treasure trove of Irish history. The visit to West Belfast and the Irish Republican Museum is an experience we will never forget.
Belfast with Garreth - Incredible!
We traveled from New York this past week to Dublin with the Long Island Children’s Choir for their performance at Christ Church Cathedral. We were so incredibly lucky to have Garreth as our driver for a tour of Belfaston Tuesday, July 10th. He was INCREDIBLY knowledgeable and kind and we were so grateful to him for sharing his experiences with us. We hope he enjoyed the impromtu concert on the bus - it was the girls way of saying thank you. Truly an experience none of us will forget.
Belfast Titanic museum/ HMS Caroline
Our driver Alec was brilliant. Very knowledgeable and informative as we toured along. We went to the Irish Republican History Museum, HMS Caroline, wrote on the Peace Wall, had a fantastic pint of Guinness at The Crown - a beautiful Victorian pub with gorgeous interior and little snugs, travelled the roads where the troubles were and went to the Titanic museum. I would love to have spent more time at the museums but you are limited on a day trip so that’s something I will do differently next time but, Irish Day Tours are highly recommended for their customer service and the value for money of this day out.
Rocky was great - he told us the history behind the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland seperation and The Troubles in Belfast. He took us to West Belfast where the mural wall and Peace wall are - interesting but I wouldn't want to be there as a solo traveller! We also walked the Titanic Dock, learnt about St Patrick and visited his final resting place and more. Overall a really infornative and interesting tour. Lots of restroom and food stops as well which was much appreciated by all on board. An enjoyable way to get a good overview of Northern Ireland.
