The Giant’s Causeway is a unique world heritage site that is also known as the Jewel in the Crown of the fabulous Antrim north coast. Transported by luxury tour to this wondrous World Heritage site you can marvel in the breath-taking environment which has been named in the Lonely Planet Guide as having: “Ireland’s most impressive and atmospheric landscape features.” Be awe-inspired with its unique features of hexagonal stone columns flowing from and into the sea. The spectacle itself has been ranked in world-wide importance alongside the famous Mount Everest and the Giant Redwoods of California. Walk in the footprints of the legendary Celtic hero, Finn MacCool, who along with volcanic movement, helped to fashion (it has been alleged) the now world famous basalt columns of granite and the stepping stones that enabled him to walk across the sea to Scotland to fight a neighbouring giant, Benandonner. The area is also a world-famous haven for many types of sea-birds.

Taking in the unspoilt beauty of beaches and rolling hills along the Antrim coast, we transport you to the top of Ireland with a coffee break and photo opportunities along the way. Walk among the polygonal and hexagonal columns of layered basalt at the Giant’s Causeway. The tallest being 12 metres, 39 feet high. Shroud yourself in the myth and legend. Walk among the 40,000 hexagonal columns jutting out of the sea forming part of the tale involving the mythical Celtic warrior and hero Finn McCool. There may be some ‘truth’ in the stepping stones to Scotland as the same shapes reappear in the Scottish island of Staffa across the water.
The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge at Ballintoy, Ballycastle is an exhilarating rope bridge that was erected by fishermen years ago to forge a link over a 23m deep and 20m wide chasm to check their salmon nets. You can take a short coastal walk from the Giant’s Causeway to this site. Gaze out at the stunning views of the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland and Rathlin Island. The area has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Ask your driver guide about visiting this site as an alternative to visiting Belfast City.
