What you will visit:

Giant's Causeway
Renowned for its polygonal columns of layered basalt, the causeway is considered the Eighth Wonder of the World and is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland. According to myth, the giant Finn McCool used the basalt columns to form the causeway into stepping stones so he could travel from Ireland to Scotland to visit his lover, a Scottish giantess. Scientists, however, believe the mainly hexagonal columns resulted from cooling lava flows. Visit the Giant's Causeway Visitor Center before walking the approximately three-quarter-mile path down to the cliff bottom to view the causeway..

What you will see along the way:
Drive along one of the loveliest coastlines in Northern Europe, the North Antrim Coast. Gaze out the window at the shore, with its tiny fishing villages and small resorts, and the countryside, with sweeping views of farmland, villages and rolling moors.

Photo Opportunities:
If time permits, you'll pause to snap some photos at Dunluce Castle, one of Ireland's most romantic and breathtaking castles, perched on the rocky North Antrim coast and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, which links the mainland to the tiny Carrick Island.
