I remember learning about this amazing place many years ago when I studied geology at secondary school, never thinking that I would ever get to see it. It's quite a gentle walk down a surfaced roadway and fortunately the fine weather enabled good photographs. Be...More

Very well done visitor's center; our tour guide was great. The weather was very windy and rainy but that is Ireland. Well worth a visit to see the prehistoric rock formations.

First of all, we walked in for free. The only thing you actually need to pay for is the Visitor's Center, but you can easily skip it by just walking through the tunnel from the parking area. It is a nice walk downhill and I...More
