Giant's Causeway Tours
The Giant’s Causeway has become one of the most iconic landscapes in the world.
As soon as you lay your eyes on the columns rising out of the sea, thoughts of brisk winds arriving over the Malin Sea and stretching over Northern Ireland soon follow.
But there’s a side of the Giant’s Causeway unknown to most, of a tale once thought to be lost to the winds, but now found.
Ready to explore Northern Ireland?
But before you hear this tale, you’ll want to lay your eyes on this fascinating place for yourself.
The Giant’s Causeway Tour, run by the family-run business Ulster Tours, will whisk you away from the streets of Belfast and right to the causeway.
First, however, there are a few stops to be made. The Giant's Causeway Tour lasts a whole day, during which time you’ll get the chance to explore the likes of Carrickfergus Castle and Magheramorne Quarry.
The sense of déjà vu that suddenly sweeps over you when arriving at the quarry is sure to leave you momentarily befuddled.
But then suddenly, images of Jon Snow moodily walking by and an ice dragon sweeping down out of the sky will dawn on you.
The quarry was used as the filming location for The Wall in the Game of Thrones TV series, so be sure to get your camera ready to snap some pics.
There are more stops to be made along the way, but we’ll leave you to discover them for yourself. Just be sure to keep that camera on hand; you’re about to pass by some of Northern Ireland’s most sensational landscapes.
Now, back to that tale. It’s said the Irish giant, Finn McCool had fallen deeply in love with a Scottish maiden. To reach her across the Irish Sea, he began building a causeway.
But each night, in fear of losing Finn, his grandmother would conjure up a mighty storm to destroy all his progress.
Finn got caught in one of these storms only once, perishing under its viciousness.
Myths and legends keep the modern world alive with magic. Seeing the Giant’s Causeway for yourself reminds you of this.
Finding stillness among the waves
When you arrive at the causeway, take a moment to stand amidst the cliff faces and columns rising out of the sea – take a deep breath and let the beauty of the place wash over you.
With the enchanting stories of the causeway filling your mind and good company surrounding you – your adventure with Ulster Tours to the Giant’s Causeway awaits.
