Slieve League – Europe’s Highest Sea Cliffs


An 8 km detour at the village of Carrick will bring you to the eastern end of Slieve League Mountain, whose sea cliffs are the highest in Europe (765 ft).

At a spot known as 'Amharch Mór' (the big view) the full gigantic height can be seen. The Cliff face extending for about 3km has been carved by the Atlanatic to give a variety of shapes and colours. During summer months local boat owners will bring you to the cliffs by sea.

Giant’s Causeway – a World Heritage site


Here the visitor can witness a spectacular sight of about 40,000 six sided basalt columns, estimated to be about 55 million years old, which were formed by cooling lava. The site stretches for 2 miles along the Antrim coast where there are scenic walks that take you past splendid amphitheaters and fine rock formations.

The visitors' centre provides audio-visual shows and interactive exhibitions which explain in detail the formation of the causeway attributed to the giant Finn MacCool (mythology) and also the actual geology involved.
