Walk in the footsteps of giants...

Situated on the North coast of Ireland in County Antrim (about two miles north of Bushmills, 11 miles from Coleraine and 13 miles from Balllycastle), the Giant’s Causeway is an area of approximately 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption; however the legend is more convincing for those who prefer a more colourful story. 
 
The Giant’s Causeway plays a major part of Ireland’s heritage, attracting visitors from around the world each year since it was first documented in 1693 and realistic sketches were published in 1740. The Giant’s Causeway has often been described as the Eighth Wonder of the World and was declared as Ireland’s first World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1986. Once you have visited, you will quickly see why it has become Ireland’s top tourist attraction.  

Welcome to Northern Ireland's Causeway Coast & Glens – an area whose breathtaking and rugged coastline merges into the romantic landscape of its deep silent glens and lush forest parks. The wonders don’t stop there as the region has been made famous by the Causeway Coastal Route which is seen as ‘One of the World’s Great Road Journeys’ and one of the most outstanding scenic touring drives in the world.
