The Giant’s Causeway is a very mythical place indeed. :) These oddly-shaped basalt blocks look quite surreal, no wonder they have inspired so many stories throughout the years. According to local legend, the Causeway was built by the Irish giant Finn MacCool. He wanted to go to Scotland to fight his enemy Benandonner, who threatened him. Upon arrival, Finn realizes that Benandonner is twice his size and flees back to Ireland. Knowing the local legend makes visit to the Giant’s Causeway even more special. :) http://www.ireland.com/en-gb/what-is-available/natural-landscapes-and-sights/articles/giants-causeway-myth/

The Giant's Causeway is one of Ireland's three World Heritage Sites so you know it's well worth a visit, nothing like a breezy day down there with the sea spray on your face!

Hi Saoirse,

The Giant's Causeway is a very popular tourist destination. It is renowned for its polygonal columns of layered basalt and is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland. Resulting from a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago, this is the focal point of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has attracted visitors for centuries.

There are a number of different tour companies which offer day tours from Belfast and Dublin to the Giants Causeway

Alternatively if you are thinking of taking a car a popular driving route to the Giants Causeway is along the Causeway Coast which is rated as one of the top five road trips worldwide.  Start your journey in Belfast, and follow the coast road through the nine Glens of Antrim, winding between various picturesque villages and unforgettable scenic locations. The route peaks at the Giant's Causeway on the North Antrim coast, before continuing west toward the walled city of Londonderry.

Hi there,

If you're visiting Northern Ireland, the Giant's Causeway is a great place to see indeed. It's pretty impressive ;)
You might also want to see the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge (http://www.ireland.com/what-is-available/attractions-built-heritage/articles/carrick-a-rede-rope-bridge/). Really scenic place and not very far from the Causeway :)

Safe travels,

Iris

If you like to experience a real Irish market fair, do make it over to Ballycastle on the last Monday and Tuesday of August for the Auld Lammas Fair. It returns every year since the 17th century and marks the end of summer and the beginning of harvest. You can even try the local delicacies like Dulse (a red seaweed) and Yellowman (a sweet honeycomb candy) while browsing through the various craft stalls and enjoy the music.

I think you might also like the Gobbins Cliffpath in Islandmagee along the Antrim coast. You follow the path, which is a combination of the original hand carved steps and tunnel from 1902, and new bridges and galleries, with a tour guide that knows everything there is to know about the area. It’s so spectacular to be so close to the cliffs, the waves and the coastline, and in May you can even see puffins breeding at the end of the path! Access is only possible with a guide, so make sure to book your place on time. :)

Hi Saoirse

If you are coming over in a motorhome or caravan you can stay at Ballyness Caravan Park.  We are located just 2 miles from the Giant's Causeway and 7 miles from Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge.  We also have the Causeway Rambler bus calling frequently at the park between May and September, on route to the Giant's Causeway and Rope Bridge as well as numerous other stops.  It is a perfect day out and your can hop on and hop off as much as you want.  You can contact us on www.ballynesscaravanpark.com

We are also just 1 hours drive from Belfast, The Gobbins and Derry, easy distance for a day trip as well.
