Giants Causeway, Bushmills

The scientists tell us The Giant’s Causeway’s unique six-sided basalt columns and formations are the result of volcanic activity some 60 million years ago. But Platinum NI knows better! We much prefer the legend that it was local giant Finn MacCool who is responsible for the world-famous tourist attraction (a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Northern Ireland’s most visited tourist attraction) so he could cross the sea for his showdown with Scottish rival Benandonner. Our Finn didn’t mess about, creating not to be missed sights such as The Wishing Chair (everyone from royalty to celebrities have plonked their bottoms here), the Giant’s Boot, and a massive hexagonal formation of columns that resembles church organ pipes.

For the record, there’s also a fantastic state-of-the-art Visitor Centre on site.
