Need another trip idea? Well, clean the floors because your jaw may just drop when you see this next destination. Travellers, it’s time for you to visit ‘Giant’s Causeway,’ in Northern Ireland.
The Giant’s Causeway is located on the Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland, between Portrush and Ballycastle. It may seem far, but it’s worth coming to Northern Ireland just to visit Giant’s Causeway. It’s that impressive.
The Giant’s Causeway is spectacular. It is so unique in its appearance that it is hard to believe it is real. A stretch of coastline with perfectly formed hexagonal columns, all massed together at the water’s edge…it’s an amazing sight to see.
The local legend tells the story that the causeway was built by the Irish giant Finn MacCool. When challenged by the Scottish giant Benandonner, Finn built the causeway as a bridge to join Ireland and Scotland. After Finn outwitted Benandonner, Benandonner fled back to Scotland, destroying the causeway so Finn could not follow. There are more basalt rock columns in Scotland to support this legend.
In actuality however, the unique look of the causeway was formed by volcanic activity 60 million years ago. It was the oozing up of basalt lava through the chalk beds and then the subsequent cooling that formed these pillars, but the local legend is certainly food for thought.
Today, the Giant’s Causeway is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a nature reserve. If you’re planning a visit, the best times to visit are early in the morning (if you get lucky you will have the causeway to yourself) and at dusk.
