Explore the Land of Fionn mac Cumhaill
On the Causeway Coast outside of Bushmills sits the Giant's Causeway in County Antrim. It's a curious geological formation and a UNESCO World Heritage site, the only one in Northern Ireland. Legend has it that the volcanic coast was chosen by Fionn, a semimythical Irish warrior, as a spot to meet Scottish giant Benandonner. Finn couldn’t swim, so to get over the sea to Scotland, he collected the long, hexagonal columns of rock and tossed them into the sea to make a path—a causeway—over to Scotland. Beautiful views of the Scottish coast can be seen on a clear day. An excellent hiking trail along the upper rim brings you down to the water's edge. A charming spot to see in the North! Get yourself lost in the beauty!
