Discover the Iconic Scenes of Northern Ireland

With My Ireland Tour, explore the wild coastlines, the historic settings, the culture and customs. Welcome to Northern Ireland...

Experiencing Northern Ireland...

The Towns, Villages and Wild Rural Landscapes

Beginning in Dublin, you'll head to Belfast in The North, though the Mountains of Mourne and into County Down, where St. Patrick first arrived in Ireland. Belfast, home of the Titanic, and Derry, the unbreached walled city, are soaked in the culture of Irish town life throughout history.

In the village of Bushmills, you will visit the old distillery, which was first permitted to distil whiskey in 1608 by King James I. Afterwards, head for The Giants Causeway, an unusual and beautiful sight formed by a Giant (or ancient volcanic activity).

The Causeway Coast...

Untamed Natural Beauty.

Northern Ireland tours offer winding roads and rolling hills; Small villages with unique character dot the coast, with a shade of green for each.

That is, until you arrive at The Giants Causeway. Thick hexagonal Rock formations up to 39 ft high, these basalt steps sit braced against the waves and disappear down in to the North channel, towards Islay and the Scots.

The Dark Hedges

More commonly known today as The Kings Road, the road from the North to King's Landing in the massively successful television show Game of Thrones. The Dark Hedges is a road of old, curvy beech trees, planted in the 18th Century.

Covering the road from sunlight the trees create an eerie atmosphere, ideal for the sometimes dark plots present in Game of Thrones. The road has become a very popular tourist attraction over the past number of years and are now seen by many as an integral part of their Northern Ireland Tours. It is included as part of the Game of Thrones tours in which guests visit the different sets used on the show spread across Northern Ireland.

  • Your destination today will be Belfast, the only city in Ireland to fully experience the Industrial Revolution. Linen, rope making, tobacco and most famously ship building including the building of the Titanic on the Harland & Wolff shipyard were the main industries. The Troubles took their toll on the economic life of Belfast but the past fifteen years of peace have returned much prosperity while the genuine friendliness of the city never left.
