It is a 20 minute walk from the Drop Off point to the amazing Causeway site, but there is a shuttle bus that operates for a small charge, ideal for those not comfortable walking up and down the steep gradient (hill) to the Causeway. The hexagonal basalt rocks really look like they were man made and this leads the people in Ireland to believe they were carved by Ireland's most famous Giant Warrior: the great Finn MacCoole. There is also a suggestion they may have been formed by Volcanic activity 60 million years ago. There is a charge of £8 payable at the site to visit the new Causeway visitor Center which has shops, a multimedia show and restaurants.Stoppage times are dependent on your cruise liners schedule**Duration: 2 hoursPass By: Antrim Coast Road, County Antrim, Northern IrelandWe enjoy amazing sights as we take a panoramic drive along the North Coast of Antrim, - also known as the Causeway Coast.
