Continuing on you'll make a brief photo stop at Dunluce Castle before arriving the tour's second major location - Bushmills Whiskey Distillery.

Food is not included in the tour price, but you are welcome to bring your own lunch or buy from the on-site restaurant.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge is the next stop on this 9-hour adventure. If you're not afraid of heights why not make the famous crossing (small fee payable on site), which spans a 20m-wide, 23m-deep chasm!
