- Discover The Causeway Coast
Basalt columns rise 40ft into the air from the sea at the Giants Causeway. Molten volcanic lava came up through the earth and cooled in the Atlantic. The legend goes that Finn McCool (McCumhail) built it by throwing rocks into the sea in an effort to reach Scotland.
East of the Giants Causeway lies the old dwelling of Sorley Boy McDonnel dating from the 16th and 17th Century. The Castle is very impressive, although in ruins you can imagine it as it once was. There is a sea cave right under the ruins, which a boat can pull into.
Traditionally an area famous for salmon fishing it is now best known for the 80ft high rope bridge which connects the mainland to Carrick-a Rede island. A tiny cottage can be seen on the island where fishermen took shelter when fishing in the area. You'll have to brave the shaky rope bridge first though.
The home of the old Bushmills distillery, the worlds' oldest licensed distillery, over 400 years old. You can tour the distillery and see the process of how they make one of the worlds' finest whiskies.
