The building itself is modern and very impressive (see picture below).

 

2- Stroll around the Giant’s Causeway

4- Cross the Carrick-a-Rede rope Bridge

Carrick-a-Rede is a tiny island where the rope bridge links the island to the mainland. It was initially erected by salmon fishermen 350 years ago. It is 20 meters long and stands over 30 meters over the sea. Very impressive, even for people not afraid of heights! The Republic of Ireland is also surrounded by small islands such as the Aran Islands.

 

5- Enter the Dark Hedges

The Dark Hedges is a road surrounded by beech trees which form an atmospheric tunnel. According to the legend, the hedges are visited by a ghost called Grey Lady, she could be the ghost of a maid from a nearby house who died in mysterious circumstances but this is not certain. The road now is mainly famous for having been a filming location for the Games of Thrones TV series.
