This morning take some time to tour Belfast City. See some of the landmark sites such as City Hall and Queens University. Depart Belfast and travel north along the coast road through the spectacular “Nine Glens of Antrim”. Continue along the North Antrim coastline arriving at the magnificent Giant’s Causeway. This area of hexagonal columns was formed over 60 million years ago by cooling lava and has given rise to many legends as the basalt resembles giant steps. Overnight: Antrim area.
