The Causeway has created over 60 million years ago. The formation of the Giant’s Causeway was due to intense volcanic activity.
The Giant’s Causeway
It is located in County Antrim on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland, about 3 miles northeast of the town of Bushmills and about 60miles from Belfast.
The Giant’s Causeway is often crowded with tourists so the best time to visit this amazing natural wonder is early in the morning.
Perhaps less well known is the fact that the area is a haven for seabirds such as fulmar, petrel, cormorant, shag, redshank guillemot and razorbill.
The Giants Causeway Legend
As there was no boat which was large enough to carry him across the sea to confront Bennandonner, he built his own pathway of stepping stones from Ireland to Scotland.
The Giant’s Causeway is definitely an amazing place to visit and worth a trip if you’re in Northern Ireland.
