Giant’s Causeway, Co Antrim
The jewel in the crown of the fabulous coast of Antrim and Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Giant’s Causeway is a definite must-see.
Comprising of around 40,000 mostly hexagonal basalt columns that descend gently into the sea, this dramatic natural landscape was, depending on who you believe, formed either by an underwater volcano’s geological actions or by a legendary giant of the area named Finn McCool.
With its scenic cliffs, stunning views, and otherworldly columns, this magnificent, mysterious formation has captured the imagination of artists for centuries, and it is easy to see why. There are excellent photo opportunities to be had and an innovative and imaginative visitors centre to enjoy afterwards.
