Where is it? On the north coast.
What is it? A world-famous wonder of basalt columns that are, quite literally, the stuff of legends. Thanks to either the mythical giant Finn McCall or the volcanic actions of lava (take your pick), this expanse of North Atlantic coastline is a natural playground of hexagonal columns.
Why go? For the wow-factor photos. The Causeway looks impressive whatever the weather. And unlike some roped-off heritage sites, here you have free rein to clamber over the rocks and pose for photos till your heart’s content. Leave enough time for the snazzy National Trust Visitors’ centre where you can learn more about the science and myth behind it all.
A densely beautiful region with a checkered past, the best things to do in Northern Ireland will astound you. Although historically less of a travel destination than its southern neighbour, the region is now very much back on the map for travellers. Perhaps it's because we’ve seen the country’s breathtaking coastlines, historic buildings and beautiful pockets of wilderness used as backdrops to some of our favourite TV series, most notably, Game of Thrones. From its rejuvenated cities (check out the best things to do in Belfast) to a layered heritage rich in myth and folklore, exploring Northern Ireland will have you feeling a world away.
