Considered the country’s fourth-greatest natural wonder, World Heritage-listed Giant's Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. Most of the columns are hexagonal, with the tallest rising 12 m (39 ft) into the air. Some of these rock structures, after several million years of weathering, resemble easily recognizable objects. These include the Organ, Giant’s Boot, Giant’s Eyes, and Camel’s Hump. Visit the area to see and photograph a wide variety of native seabirds, such as cormorants, redshanks, and razorbills. The weathered rocks shelter a number of rare and unusual plants, including sea spleenwort, sea fescue, and frog orchid. Stop by the visitor center for more information, souvenirs, and refreshments. A visit to Giant's Causeway represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bushmills trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

A great place, location and view. The visitor centre is great and I loved the audio tour. Nice to have the old lore given. more »
Simply breathtaking. Amazing views wherever you look. Take your time as is an incredible sight. Perfect place to take pictures. Can be a bit crowded by tourist buses at certain days so maybe consult a local guide for best time and day to go.
A site famous in Irish folklore, for the battle between the Giants, a site famous for appearing in a Led Zeppelin album, the Giant's Causeway is a great place to visit. I would recommend the 1km walk down to the causeway to take in the views along the walk, and probably catch the bus back up. Unique and beautiful rock formations, definitely one of its kind in the world.
