Walk The Giant's Causeway

The Giant’s causeway is located along the Antrim coast in Northern Ireland and its basalt columns are famous around the world.

This UNESCO World Heritage site and nature reserve is well looked after, despite the million people that walk it every year. There are lots to do with 3 hiking trails along the cliffs, a visitors’ centre and guided tours.

Whether you choose to believe the science or the myths, how the causeway came about detracts nothing from how it looks today. Free to walk on, it’s often filled with families enjoying the fresh air together or artists seeking inspiration alone.

Other popular things to do nearby are Dunluce Castle, the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and many Game of Thrones filming locations.

As always, midday in the summertime is crowded. But sunrise and dusk are popular with photographers because of the eerie mist that often appears.

Whilst it’s free to visit the causeway, the car park there charges a fee to park your car and get into the visitors’ centre.
