An mp3 pubcrawl is available for download from MyTourTalk. It kicks off in the Cathedral Quarter and meanders with tipsy purpose towards the Crown Bar, offering a full crawl of ten famous Belfast pubs.
Join us for a customised tour to what is commonly referred to as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ – the Giant’s Causeway.
Fifty million years ago the Giant's Causeway's hexagonal rocks and columns were created by huge lakes of molten lava cooling slowly and evenly. Three hundred years ago scientists, arguing over whether they were man-made or natural, began the modern science of geology. The myth that the causeway was built by the giant Finn MacCool was invented by locals to attract visitors in the 18th century. Today the Giant's Causeway remains Northern Ireland's most important tourist attraction, with over 750,000 visitors each year. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

On the journey, you will be able to enjoy the dramatic and breathtaking scenery of the Antrim coast, visit Carrickfergus and Dunluce castles (the latter’s kitchens – together with the cooks – collapsed into the sea in 1639), cross the notorious Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (weather permitting), and sample the produce of the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery at Bushmills.
