MON, 01 AUG 2022 – “Day 2: Fionn MacCool Giants Causeway and the walled city of Derry - The Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge is not for the faint hearted. Swaying 30 meters above the churning Atlantic, we’ll walk the creaking wooden slats to tiny Carrick Island. Then it’s off to the Giant’s Causeway, a natural world heritage site, formed by a volcanic eruption, 60 million years ago. Learn about the legend that was the burly giant, Fionn MacCool. It’s on to Derry, the last walled city to be built in Europe and home to some very famous walls such as the Bogside Murals and Free Derry Corner. Explore the city by night as the lights shimmer on the River Foyle, before heading for a cocktail in Granny Annie’s or some toe-tapping jazz, in Bennigans. Estimated driving time: 3 hours Excluding stops” – Overnight Londonderry, Northern Ireland, UK

Uncle Larry’s note: According to our tour guide/driver, Jimmie, the rope bridge has been closed for three years and was not on the itinerary he received from Overland Ireland.
