Giant’s Causeway, also known as “the eighth wonder of the world”, is truly a unique site to see. As Ireland’s first World Heritage site, the unusual rock formations are the direct result of a volcanic eruption which took place 60 million years ago. The attraction, along with the views of one of Europe’s most spectacular coastlines, makes Giant’s Causeway a UK focal point with countless visitors every year.
Awarded UK’s Best Heritage Attraction at the British Travel Awards in 2015, Giant’s Causeway is rich in local and natural history. Some believe a mighty giant, Finn McCool, carved the structure from the coast in hopes of crossing the sea to fight his foe, Benandonner. It’s been said that one can find remnants of the giant’s ancient home including his boot and wishing chair.
Giant’s Causeway is a family-friendly attraction with four scenic trails to explore. Whether you prefer a relaxing stroll to take in the natural beauty or a challenging hike around the coast, the trails are suited to every level. With an accessible cliff top walk for families and people with disabilities, it’s the perfect setting for a picnic and/or country walk. You will also be happy to know that dogs are welcome as long as they are on a leash.
You will also find a number of different sea birds off the coast around the Causeway, including fulmur, petrel and razorbill, making it a great location for bird watching or birding. Those interested in the study of organisms will find Giant’s Causeway to be an extraordinary site, with a number of rare plant species on and around the rock formations.
