The Giant's Causeway

Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
7 Kudos
Flag
The Giant's Causeway is a very scenic destination of the course of Northern Ireland. There are naturally made tiny cliff like things that look like a giant came by and stomped the ground flat. There are tall a beautiful mountains as far as the eyes can see. The cliff-like entities overlook the ocean. It's a far walk from the entry point, probably about a mile to a mile and a half. For a couple Euros, there is a shuttle service that will take you up and down the giant hill .If traveling to Northern Ireland, this is a must see.
