This is the most complete guided walking tour experience available on this iconic site. It is a very personal account by a guide who is internationally recognised as being the “Causeway Guide “ Mark Rodgers wears his heart on his sleeve when he tours and nowhere more so than on his beloved Giants Causeway.

The Giants Causeway is my home, I am emotionally connected to it, it is the one special place in Ireland where I find peace and feel the presence of my ancestors all around me. I love everything about the Causeway from the huge visual impact it has on you to the way it heightens all your senses. You can feel the cool breeze of the Atlantic, hear the call of the birds and even taste the salt on your lips. It has this gift of making you realise that in the grand scheme of things you are part of something much greater than we can fully understand.
Most of all I love people from the Giants Causeway. I am one of them. Our families have lived across this shoreline for centuries and out of necessity in days gone by we have created the Tourism industry here on this magical site.

With their and community support we created this tour “Dander with Dalriada”. This tour pays homage to their way of life and provides a step back in time to a period full of entrepreneurship and great characters. Time is not an issue stay as long as it takes, when you leave you will never be a stranger here again, you will feel like you belong here with us, as if you have come home.

The Causeway is our canvas, painting pictures with stories is our gift. We will support the outstanding conservation work of the National Trust and provide an ambient hamper from Taste Causeway to give you a delicious memento packed full of local produce that connects you to this area.

This tour is about our history and our heritage it pays homage to our ancestors and continues the legacy of some very special men, William John Purdy his father Alex Purdy and their families, neighbours and friends.
