The Giant’s Causeway is known to the Irish as the 8th wonder of the world. Much of the Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast World Heritage Site is today owned and managed by the National Trust and it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Northern Ireland. There are a few tea shops and gift shops in the general area, and you will have to pay for parking if you visit during operating hours. From this ‘central’ location, the hike to the Causeway is around one kilometer. Scattered around the coast, you can also see old fisherman’s cottages, nestled into small, wind-sheltered harbors, surrounded by incredible rock formations.
The Giant’s Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic fissure eruption. It is located in County Antrim on the north coast of Northern Ireland, about three miles northeast of the town of Bushmills.
It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986, and a national nature reserve in 1987 by the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland.
