Explore the Giant’s Causeway

Follow in the footsteps of giants! Take in the stunning coastal views as you trek along the Giant’s Causeway. Made up of entirely naturally occurring hexagonal pillars, the causeway is a surreal sight. According to legend, these rocks are the remains of a causeway, or road, stretching across to Scotland. The old story goes, that it was built by an Irish giant named Finn MacCool who was challenged to a fight by a Scottish giant named Benandonner. Of course, the Giant’s Causeway isn’t really the result of warring giants (well, probably…). It is the strange result of cooled lava from a volcanic eruption more than 65 million years ago.

What else is there to discover?

While you're exploring the surreal rocks, see if you can spot the Giant's Boot, the Wishing Chair, The Camel, The Giant's Harp and the Organ!

Discover the full story of the legend of Finn McCool in the amazing visitor’s centre, packed with all kinds of information about this fascinating myth. Plus, if you’re interested in the geological side of this phenomenon, the visitor’s centre is sure to provide you with all the knowledge you’re looking for about the fascinating rock formations. The visitor’s centre is well worth your time, as with the additional knowledge gained from your visit, exploring the rocks will be that much more exciting.

Access to the Causeway itself is entirely free, however the pricing for the fantastic visitor’s centre is as follows.

  • Adult: £13.00
  • Children: £6.50
  • Family: £32.50
  • One Adult Family: £19.50
