With views as impressive as its namesake, a visit to Northern Ireland would not be complete without stopping off at Giants Causeway. It’s unique and dramatic appearance is thanks to an ancient volcanic eruption that left behind 40,000 basalt columns that make for great Instagram shots.  You can also climb to the clifftop trail for an energising hike and a birds eye view photo of the coast.
