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.
