Magheracross (plain of the cross) looks over the busiest of the ancient Celtic seaways that flow between Ireland (Erin) and Scotland (Alba).  Hundreds of thousands of people have travelled this magnificent marine thoroughfare over many centuries described in the ancient world as a bridge of currachs.

The Giant Causeway

The walk along the giant causeway and taking in the unforgettable sights of Ireland's most spectacular natural phenomenon some cannot help but stand in awe of the incredible immensity of creation.  This amazing display of nature's evolution tells the story of how over 60 million years ago molten lava froze into 38,000 basalt columns, mostly hexagon in shape, forming what looks like a series of giant stepping-stones.  One could stand for hours mesmerized by the wonders of the ocean and the towering cliffs.
