Stretching 4km along the rugged North Antrim coast, like an enormous rock-hewn jigsaw puzzle, the Giant’s Causeway is one of the UK’s most spectacular natural sights and one of Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions. This is Northern Ireland’s only UNESCO World Heritage site, made up of over 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed by volcanic action up to 70 million years ago. Most remarkable is the continuity of the rocks — each one around 12 inches in diameter and almost perfectly hexagonal, although their heights range from diminutive stepping-stones to 12-meter-tall towers.

The flat-topped columns form a dramatic coastal walkway, so extraordinary that it’s inspired centuries of folk stories, most notably the local legend that the path was built by the famous Irish giant, Finn McCool. It’s not only the attraction’s name that is derived from the legend — many of the amphitheatres of columns have equally evocative names, like Giant’s Boot, The Wishing Chair and Giant’s Granny. The jaw-dropping natural wonder might not need fairytales to make it stand out, but the onsite Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre presents a series of fascinating exhibitions on both the facts and the myths of the geological enigma.

Belfast is main springboard for Giant’s Causeway tours and it’s possible to combine a visit with a walking tour of the capital or a drive along the scenic Causeway Coastal Route. With a full day to explore, take in nearby sights like the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Dunluce Castle or the Old Bushmills Whisky Distillery, or pair it with a tour of Northern Ireland’s many Game of Thrones filming locations.
