The Giant’s CausewayPosted by admin on Apr 22, 2013 in Blog, Day Trips, Schools, Tours | Comments Off on The Giant’s Causeway
The Giant’s Causeway is one of the most well known and widely recognised landmarks in Ireland and each year thousands of visitors come here to marvel at this wonder of nature. The Giant’s Causeway is a truly remarkable natural rock formation created millions of years ago by the combination of bubbling red-hot lava and the cooling action of the sea. When you arrive at the Causeway you will be able to go into the exhibition about the stones which is interactive and gives you much more information on what you are about to see. For even more facts take one of the audio tours of the stones which allow you to view them at your own pace.
Also on site is a tourist information centre, a coffee shop for those all important refreshments, a bureau de change and a gift shop that has local items in addition to Giant’s Causeway items. Parking for cars and coaches is spread over three car parks which means there will be no difficulty in getting there.
The Giant’s Causeway itself is located a short walk from the main centre, and for anyone who cannot walk this distance there is a shuttle bus for £1 which will take you to the stones and back. The coastal path and the stones themselves are open to visit from dawn to dusk each day which means that opening times vary depending on the time of year you visit. The Visitor Centre is open from 9.00am to 7.00pm and the last admission each day is from one hour before closing.
This is one of the Irish attractions that you will not want to miss out on as it is a sight to behold.
