Fun day along the east and north coast of Northern Ireland
Aug. 2019
This was our second tour with Railtours and it did not disappoint. John, our tour guide from Railtours, was always making sure everybody was ok from the beginning of the tour until the end, even ensuring people would get back safely to their hotels.
The bus ride along the coast has stunning views and we got to see the Scotland shore. Troy, our bus driver, made the entire trip informative and funny.
Crossing the rope bridge if fun, though not for the faint of heart. The Giant's Causeway if definitely a master piece from nature.
We also got a glimpse of Belfast and the big cranes.
You may feel rushed at times, but considering all the terrain covered and the ample time you get at the attractions, it is worth it.

Stunning Views
Jul. 2018 • Couples
Booked this trip through Irish Rail Day tours. It was well organised but a bit rushed. Met at Connolly Station, Dublin, by a rep, train trip was peaceful, then met by coach (McCombs) in Belfast. Driver Troy was a bit exasperating and if you value your anonymity then beware!! He talks a lot and there is a lot of interaction (and jokes) which may not be to everybody’s liking. The drive along the coast provides some stunning views and there is a quick photo-stop of Dunluce Castle. The trip includes a visit to the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge which is fantastic but not enough time allowed. Lunch is arranged at a pub on route (not included in price), again with limited time. There is a visit to Bushmills Distillery which is superfluos and this time could be better spent at the bridge. The Giant’s causeway is truly amazing and there is ample time here. Overall, a worthwhile trip and an easy way of getting to the two amazing attractions.

Giant's Causeway Rail Tour from Dublin
May 2018 • Family
This was our second Railtour trip during our visit to Ireland. It was fantastic! Beautiful scenery. Our guide Pat was the best!! Also, our driver to Northern Ireland, Sam, was fantastic as well. He was very entertaining and knowledgeable. The stop for food was great - everything was delicious. We would highly recommend the tour!

Extended vacation
We added this trip last minute when our flight was canceled. It was easy to book and get there. I felt too rushed during the tour. Everything was either a quick drive by or we were told to hurry to get a picture and come back due to having to stay on a time schedule. I would have preferred to have more time to enjoy thing and not be told repeatedly that the bus will leave us if we are late getting back and not being given much time to enjoy any of the activities. The last place was less rushed and when. We were done we had to find a place to stay warm while waiting for the bus to return.
