THE CAUSEWAY COAST WHISKEY TRAIL

Experience one of the most breathtakingly beautiful driving routes in the world and enjoy some fine whiskeys along the way. This is a fully escorted one day tour - departs from and returns to Belfast (or drop off Derry).

irish coffee at a former home of a british legend

We meet outside the famous Europa Hotel in the centre of Belfast and not long after we’re travelling north out of the city to the Antrim coast road. Just a quick hour later we’ll make our first stop at the picturesque village of Ballymena where we invite you to appreciate the art of Irish Coffee at The Londonderry Arms Hotel, a former home of former British Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. We enjoy an Irish Coffee here in the hotel’s cosy Arkle Whiskey Bar.

VISIT A UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE

We continue on the Causeway Coastal route enjoying stunning views all the way to the UNESCO world heritage site – The Giant’s Causeway, one of the most unique places in Europe. It’s an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns. The scientists will tell you the rock formations are the result of a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago. The locals believe differently however, they’ll tell you the columns are the remains of a causeway built by a giant – the Irish legend, Finn MacCool. We’ll let you take it all in and decide for yourself!

TO THE HOME of bushmills IRISH WHISKEY

Today’s highlight is next… Dating all the way back to 1608 AD, the Bushmills Distillery is the oldest licensed distillery in the world. We’ll give you time to purchase some lunch in the restaurant on arrival then we take a tour of the historical distillery. Famed for its range of single malt Irish whiskeys, you will have the chance to try them during a premium tasting in the very impressive Master Distiller’s tasting rooms. Time for shopping in the Gift Store, then sit back relax and we’ll have you back in Belfast (or in Derry) in good time to enjoy the evening ahead.
