We will be in Belfast in mid- to late-April and my daughter wants to see puffins. We will not have a car, so we'll be relying on buses and trains. We also hope to see Dunluce and the Causeway, but have found a daytour from Belfast that would take us there. I can't seem to find any tours to see puffins, though.
We've looked at Rathlin Island, but it doesn't seem that we'd be able to work a public-transportation trip to Rathlin in enough time to actually get to see the birds for more than a few minutes. We're still trying to decide/find out if staying on the island for two nights and a day would be the way to go or not.
Is there anywhere else that we could go to see puffins (excepting a zoo?) that can be gotten to by public transportation? I'm wondering if we had better plan on trying to see the puffins while we are in Scotland instead, and free up more time for just sight-seeing in NI?
Advice would be welcome. - Nan
