Daytrip to giants causeway

Is it possible to do a daytrip to causeway and catch a train that evening back to Dublin? Looking at schedules and it appears all trains leave by 1800 and tours don't return in tim

Yes you can catch the 20.00 back to Dublin, McCombs work with Railtours Ireland and drop at central to meet the train

As Bobby says it's absolutely possible. All of the tours from the various companies drop back in Belfast between 6pm-7pm so it's easy to make the train that departs Central at 8.05pm, which gets you in to Dublin at 10.15pm.

Just don't do it on a summer Sunday as the last train departs at 19.00 and its often after seven when the coaches return to Belfast.

You could also just do the trip yourself without being tied to a planned tour. Just get the train to Coleraine from Belfast (they run every hour mon-sat and every 2hrs on sundays) and hop on the 172 bus at Coleraine station (the bus and train are beside each other) to the causeway (takes 35mins). Going early will leave you plenty of time to get back, and obviously you can get off at Central station on the way back for your train to Dublin.
