The Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a dramatic landscape of about 40,000 basalt columns emerging from the sea off the North Coast of Ireland. The columns formed millions of years ago after a volcanic eruption. The area is so impressive that it inspired the legend of giant Fionn Mac Cumhaill who built the stepping stones to reach Scotland. The area is a must-see on any visit to Ireland – whether you’re interested in the mythology and folklore, or simply want to take in the beauty of the rugged North.
Our Northern Ireland Day Tour from Dublin is the ideal way to explore the Giants' Causeway and this fantastic region! Take advantage of your time in Belfast and opt to take either a Black Taxi Tour to learn about the political conflict in the North, or join the Titanic Visitor Experience to witness interactive displays and reconstructions of the fateful ship.
Of course, a trip to the North is incomplete without a visit to the gem in the crown – the Giant’s Causeway. Here you can walk along the basalt columns which disappear under the sea and take in stunning views of the wild ocean. The spectacular rock formation is named after an Irish myth your driver will be happy to share with you on the way. Created more than 60 million years ago after a series of volcanic eruptions it is best known for its distinctive rock formations that span nearly 18 miles (29kms) of coastline.
