The Myths of the Giants Causeway

The Giant’s Causeway is steeped in myth and legend. Carved from the coast by the mighty giant, Finn McCool, who left behind an ancient home full of folklore.

Local people here believe that between the hexagons, the mythical features carved out in the rocks and the tumbling sea, there’s real magic. You may not always see it straight away, but come to this place, stand on the stones, uncover the legends, use your imagination and just wait. It won’t be long until you feel it.

Geology of the Giants Causeway

It’s no surprise this place is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A geological wonder with over 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the Giant’s Causeway is the result of intense volcanic and geological activity. The Causeway provides a glimpse into the Earth’s most ancient past. An epic 60 million-year-old legacy to the cooling and shrinking of successive lava flows.
