Belfast City – Full Day Coach Tour from Dublin – 11 hours
En route to Belfast we stop at Monasterboice, a 5th century monastic site that contains three of the finest Celtic high crosses in the land, as well as a 10th century round tower. Muiredachs Cross is the finest high cross in Ireland and is widely regarded as one of the best surviving examples of Irish religious art.
After that we continue north and arrive in Belfast City. Your guide will begin your tour of the city in two parts. We first visit west Belfast where we will see the infamous Peace Wall. This 25ft wall divides the Loyalist community from the Republican community. Loyalists are those who are loyal to the Queen of England and wish to keep Northern Ireland as part of the United Kingdom. Republicans are those who ultimately want a united Ireland and the removal of the British claim to the northern part of the island. You will also visit the Republican museum (not open Sunday & Monday) before we head to east Belfast, home of the Harland & Wolff shipyard and of course the birthplace of the famous RMS Titanic.
Here you will have the option to do the Titanic tour (supplement applies) and meet the group after in the city, or continue into the city for plenty of free time before we return to Dublin.
