Giant's Causeway & Derry

Monday


Today, we head north along the Antrim Coast for a visit to the famous Giant’s Causeway. Enroute we make a stop in the Glenariff Forest Park at the Glenariff Teahouse for some coffee or tea, with beautiful views of the park, the shop also has freshly baked scones available that are delectable. When finished we continue along the Antrim Coast until we reach the legendary Giant’s Causeway. The story goes that the Irish giant Fionn mac Cumhaill built the causeway to fight the Scottish giant Benandonner, while others claim it was the result of volcanic activity millions of years ago. Whichever story you believe, what remains true is that the Giant’s Causeway is definitely a sight to behold and one that will leave you in awe when you do.  After our lunch stop, we have a guided tour of the amazing Dunluce Castle, followed by a scenic drive to the historic walled city of Derry.  Derry was the last walled city to be built in Ireland and the only city whose walls remain completely intact in the country.
