For our penultimate day in Ireland, we decided to book a Paddywagon coach tour (roughly £55 each) from Dublin city centre to Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland.

First stop, the Dark Hedges. If you're a huge game of thrones fan like myself then you may recognise this road, its the King's Road in Season 2. The hedges are two centuries old and were planted by the Stuart family in the 18th century to impress visitors approaching the entrance of their home. I was certainly impressed, that's for sure!

Next stop, Carrick-a-rede. A famous rope bridge near Ballintoy in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The bridge links the mainland to the tiny island of Carrickarede. The was a long walk from the car park to the actual bridge and due to bad weather conditions, we weren't actually able to go across the bridge but we stood by the edge, close enough.

Giant's Causeway, possibly my favourite stop of the whole tour. I have a list of Geographical landforms that I would like to see during my lifetime and Giant's Causeway was one of them. The Giant's Causeway is an area of roughly 40,000 interlocking basalt columns as a result of a volcanic fissure eruption. The views here are amazing and if like me, you love physical geography then you'll love this landform.

Last but certainly not least, Belfast. Our stop in Belfast was very brief and there wasn't enough time to properly wander around the city. Across the road from where we were parked, there was a Greggs so I took the opportunity to lose my Vegan sausage roll virginity and I was not disappointed.

There is a variety of tours on the Paddywagon site and if you ever find yourself in Ireland looking for something to fill your day, I'd recommend the Giant's Causeway tour!
