Northern Irelands only UNESCO World Heritage Site Giants Causeway is on the northern Antrim Coast, steeped in mystery & legend and most definitely a must see. There are approximately 40,000 basalt interlocking columns created by volcanic fissure eruption 60 million years ago. Legend has it that an Irish giant named Finn McCool created a causeway across the sea to face his rival the Scottish giant Bennandoner. Following their meeting Bennadoner is reputed to have torn up the causeway & fled back to Scotland leaving behind what is visible today.
The average temperature is around 10 °C and a little cooler on the coast. Just like in the rest of the UK, be prepared for every type of weather. Comfortable walking shoes are also advisable to explore cities, coast, and countryside

Agriculture is a vital part of the Northern Ireland economy. Meat, dairy & eggs is the largest sector. 75 percent of Northern Ireland's countryside is farmed in some way.
We will visit dairy, beef and sheep enterprises and hear about the impact now that the UK has left the EU. We also visit a local apple grower who produces cider and of course the Bushmills whiskey distillery.
We stay at the 4* Dunadry Hotel and Gardens Hotel, 25 minutes' drive from Belfast. This historic hotel was formally a fort, a paper mill and latterly a linen mill. The hotel and gardens have recently been refurbished.
We are staying here for the duration of the tour, the perfect place to unpack, relax and enjoy the facilities our hotel has to offer. Maybe a stroll round the garden to the millrace and Secret Garden. Alternatively go for a dip in the pool or enjoy a ‘thermal journey’ in the sauna & steam room. Beauty treatments & massages are also available.
