Giant's Causeway

Giant's Causeway

The pride of Northern Ireland's tourist attractions, the Giant's Causeway is a must-see sight for visitors to the northern half of the Emerald Isle. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Giant's Causeway is a series of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, a wondrous geological feature caused by ancient volcanic eruptions along the Antrim coastline. The hexagonal columns, the tallest of which are about 39 feet (12m) high, were formed over 60 million years ago, and today, present visitors with a terrain that truly does look like it must've been the handiwork of superhuman beings. As you walk along the one mile (1.6km) causeway, you'll notice a few famous formations among the columns, that have been given names such as The Chimney Stacks, The Harp, The Organ and The Camel's Hump. An on-site Visitors' Centre is open every day of the year, and provides some interesting information about the origins and myths surrounding the incredible columns that make up the Giant's Causeway.


Address: Antrim Coast
Opening Time: The Visitors' Centre is open daily throughout the year, always opening at 9.30am and closing at either 4pm, 5pm or 6pm depending on the season.
