United Kingdom / Ireland: Northern Ireland

Walking the Antrim Way

  • UNESCO world heritage site of Giants Causeway, hexagonal interlocking basalt columns formed by volcanic eruptions millions of years ago
  • Spectacular scenery with castles and beautiful beaches
  • Stay in Bushmills, the home of the famous Bushmills whiskey distillery

A 4 night walk along the wonderful Antrim Way which explores one of the most beautiful sections of Ireland's northern coast. Boasting the fabulous Glens of Antrim, fantastic castles & beautiful beaches - to say nothing of the wonderful Bushmills distillery - it's a pleasure to discover. On your final day, visit the famous Carrick-a-Rede bridge used as a location in the popular Game of Thrones TV series and walk across the magnificent UNESCO listed Giant's Causeway where there are more than 40,000 hexagonal interlocking, basalt columns, formed over 60 million years ago by volcanic eruptions or maybe, as local legend suggests, built by the giant Fionn as a path to Scotland to challenge his rival there.

These way-marked trails pass through a truly wonderful region to discover, with rugged and windswept cliffs, spectacular scenery and fabulous unspoiled beaches,
