Who is Finn MacCool?

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.

Flanked by the wild North Atlantic Ocean and a landscape of dramatic cliffs, for centuries the Giant’s Causeway has inspired artists, stirred scientific debate and captured the imagination of all who see it. Is it the handiwork of legendary giant Finn McCool or the result of volcanic fury millions of years ago? The Giant’s Causeway is steeped in myth and legend. Carved from the coast by the mighty giant, Finn McCool, who left behind an ancient home full of folklore. Local people here believe that between the hexagons, the mythical features carved out in the rocks and the tumbling sea, there’s real magic. You may not always see it straightaway, but come to this place, stand on the stones, uncover the legends, use your imagination and just wait. It won’t be long until you feel it!
