Hi, we have just booked to come to Belfast for 3 nights at the end of October. Have hired a car for duration and are staying in Carrickfergus.
On one day we want to do the Giants Causeway via coastal road (looks good) and anything else we see on the way up. I have read you can get to the Causeway free of charge is that still the case? or is it just through the visitor centre.
Want to go to Belfast, see the city and murals (sorry I know its not what some Belfast people want people to do , but feel its a massive part of the cities recent history).
Would you recommend driving into Belfast and getting on a tour bus or driving ourselves around? Is it safe in some mural areas (Crumlin rd etc) walking or in the hire car? If the tour bus option is best option is there decent parking near where the tours start (castle place)?
Also is the Allens Belfast bus tour any good? (can get a tour for 2 for £9 on groupon at mo)
Any other info to help us on our first trip to Ireland gratefully received, really can't wait to come!
