Giant’s Causeway Grandeur

Known as  Clochán an Aifir in Irish with 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, Giant’s Causeway is a touristy, picture-perfect place. The seabreeze, the wind, the nature, the lush waves, make this place a must-see destination in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is in fact one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


The columns are stunningly shaped in polygons: hexagon, heptagon, octagon. It was perfectly shaped by nature as a result of an ancient volcanic eruption.
