In addition to exploring on your own, when you intern with Panrimo, four excursions for every program are included. If you intern in Dublin, one excursion will be a trip to Northern Ireland. On this fantastic day trip, you will visit:
The famous Belfast Black Cab tours, Dunluce Castle, the gorgeous Antrim Coast – which includes a stop at Giant’s Causeway – and the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge.
Game of Thrones fans will recognize Dunluce castle as the House of Greyjoy, ruler of the Iron Islands.
In the 16th Century when Sorley Boy McDonnell came over from Scotland to consolidate McDonnell territories in both Ireland and Scotland, his main base became Dunluce Castle.
By Rick Steves and Pat O’Connor While it’s Northern Ireland’s cities that grab headlines, the country has its share of rural beauty as well. The craggy 20-mile stretch of the Antrim Coast extending eastward from Portrush to Ballycastle rates second only to the tip of the Dingle Peninsula as the prettiest chunk of coastal Ireland.
After a bracing coastal walk – and braving the rope bridge – you’ll have worked up an appetite for a delicious treat in our Weighbridge Café. Don’t forget to browse the gift section for a souvenir – the majority of our gifts and souvenirs are crafted by artists or producers from the UK or Ireland.
For centuries countless visitors have marvelled at the majesty and mystery of the Giants Causeway. At the heart of one of Europe’s most magnificent coastlines its unique rock formations have, for millions of years, stood as a natural rampart against the unbridled ferocity of Atlantic storms. The rugged symmetry of the columns never fails to intrigue and inspire our visitors.
