Black Taxi Tours

There’s no better way to explore the Troubles and how they affected Belfast than on a black taxi tour of the city, which we’ll be more than happy to arrange. These fascinating excursions to the Peace Wall and the famous Belfast murals will introduce you to what life was like for people on both sides of the community in recent decades.

We’ve been approved by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board, and you can rest assured that all tours we arrange on your behalf will be of the highest standard.

The Giant’s Causeway Day Tour

Every day of the year except Christmas, we run tours from Belfast along the stunning Antrim coast where our guests can see the beautiful sandy beaches and rugged sea cliffs of Northern Ireland where they meet the rolling green pastures of the countryside during guided tours designed to entertain and inform in equal measure.

The tour takes you to what many consider to be the eighth Wonder of the Natural World and Northern Ireland’s biggest attraction, the Giant’s Causeway. During this tour you’ll not only learn the science of the Causeway (it was formed by volcanoes 60 million years ago), but the legend as well. Irish myth says the great warrior Finn McCool built the Causeway as a bridge to Scotland so he could challenge a giant. Some of the tales even say he was dressed as a baby when he overcame his foe!

The tour leaves from the bus stop in front of the the Europa Hotel at 10am and make its way to the Causeway Coast, returning to Belfast around 5pm.

Tour price starts at £22 for students and £25 for adults.


Paddy’s Palace Hostel in Belfast is ideally suited for visitors looking to explore this diverse and fascinating city. Located in the city’s University Quarter, a peaceful and safe neighbourhood of the city, which is politically stable, and warmly welcoming to everyone who visits. Nearby Queen’s University means there’s also a lively student nightlight scene nearby and the Ulster Museum and Belfast Botanic Gardens are just around the corner.

Belfast City Hall and the main shopping district is just a 15 minute walk away.

Some of the city’s finest cafes, bars, and restaurants are located within easy walking distance. These eateries and bars are popular with visitors, students, and locals making it a fantastic place to socialise and meet new people. There’s a large supermarket in the area and a Starbucks is located just 500 metres away (there are plenty of other great coffee shops nearby too).

Excellent Facilities

Dormitories featuring two to 12 beds and private rooms are available for our guests. There’s a large kitchen and spacious dining area, as well as a walled garden which includes an authentic Second World War bunker.

The standout part of the hostel is unquestionably the Georgian era drawing room, a great place for singsongs, movie nights, and hearty conversation and laughter.

And of course, our friendly staff give you expert advice on the city of Belfast and Northern Ireland which you can rely on.
