Giant’s Causeway – Northern Ireland



What is it The Giant’s Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns created by ancient volcanic eruption. It has been declared the fourth national wonder of the UK, and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Main attractions Spend the day walking along the columns, watching the flora and fauna, and enjoy the unique quality of the Giant’s Causeway.
Psychedelic Merit Irish mythology tells us that the columns which comprise Giant’s Causeway were created by a giant named Fion Mac Cumhaill who was challenged by the Scottish giant Benandonner. Today the giants are nowhere to be seen, yet the sense of order out of chaos created by the basalt rocks emerging from the ocean is awe inspiring.
