The Giant’s Causeway was formed some 60 million years ago
after a series of underground eruptions, with a large amount of basalt to emerge to the surface. When cooled, the basalt has shrunk and split into 37 000 columns for the most part, with a hexagonal shape. The columns extend from the cliffs to the sea. It is a strange but wonderful and his creation gave rise to many legends. The best known says that the warrior giant Finn Mac Cool, made a bridge to the island of Staffa in Scotland, where his beloved lived. The Giant’s Causeway is the only World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland and receives many visitors each year.
In this wonder of nature, the Causeway Coast
has other points of interest such as the spectacular caves, some on foot, others by boat. Do not miss the castles and ruins, beautiful sandy bays. Dunluce Castle is on top of a rock that is connected to the mainland by a bridge across the abyss of the sea. Dunseverick Castle is a fortress located east of the Giant’s Causeway and worth a visit. There is a very interesting place right near there, is Rathlin Island and is five miles from the coast in summer days can easily be reached by boat. Don’t forget to visit the Old Bushmill’s whiskey Distillery.
