Shore Excursions for Cruise Ship Visitors

Belfast Cruise Ship Excursions

We are delighted to offer shore excursions for cruise ship passengers direct from Belfast Port for visitors arriving in 2017. These shore excursions are brought to you by Belfast City Sightseeing in conjunction with our partners Irish Tour Tickets.

Realising time is limited and the importance of arriving back to Belfast Port on time for departure we use smaller coaches making the tour more personal and easily managed.

We have years of experience in showing you some of the most beautiful parts of planet Earth in our modern, luxury coaches. Every tour is guided by a fully qualified and passionate guide who will ensure that you are enriched and engaged by your visit.

We adjust our times to suit the ships arrival and your bus will be waiting at the port. It is important you leave the ship as soon as it docks.
