Giant’s Causeway

One of the UK’s greatest attractions and Northern Ireland's only UNESCO World Heritage Site, this strange geological formation attracts visitors from all over the globe. The site’s mythical landscape of hexagonal tubes, pieced together like a puzzle, has spurred an array of tales throughout history.

Scientists have concluded that the 40,000 basalt stone columns were left behind after intense volcanic activity around 60 million years ago.

However, its name comes from the legend that Ireland’s giant Finn McCool created the causeway in order to reach Scotland and battle his enemy, the Scottish giant Benandonner.

Regardless of whether you choose to believe the science or folklore, Giant’s Causeway is an astonishing site.

Local knowledge

Historic sites

Titanic Belfast – has become the most popular tourist attraction in Northern Ireland. The architecturally triumphant building houses a collection of artifacts, passenger stories and replicas of original architecture from the ship. The museum is in the Titanic quarter of Belfast, beside the historic docks where the famous ship’s construction took place.

Peace Walls – There are still around 100 “peace walls” spread throughout Belfast, echoing the city’s past troubles. The first walls were built in 1969, as a temporary solution to separating Republicans and Loyalists. Despite their still continued presence, gates now give way between neighbourhoods. They have become a large part of the city’s tourism industry and you will find the majority of Belfast’s street art and murals coating the walls.

Belfast Castle – is located in the southern slopes of Cave Hill Country Park. The original castle was built by the Normans in the 12th century. After burning down in 1708, it was relocated and rebuilt in Belfast’s suburbs.

Brewery tour

Hercules Brewing Company – the original Hercules Brewing Company was established in 1845 and remained in operation until 1855. It was the first craft brewery to open in Belfast after a 160 year dry spell and has since helped revive the local craft beer movement in the city.

Hilden Brewery – the oldest microbrewery in Belfast. With a collection of 11 draught beers and five bottled beers, there’s no shortage of choice. Discover the family-run brewhouse at the historic Hilden House alongside its award-winning Tap Room Restaurant.
