WHAT WILL I SEE ON THE BLACK TAXI CAB GIANTS CAUSEWAY TOUR?
Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge
Suspended almost 100 ft (30m) above sea level, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge was first erected by salmon fishermen in 1755. Connected to the cliffs by a rope bridge across the Atlantic Ocean, Carrick-a-Rede Island (home to a single building – a fisherman’s cottage) is the final destination.
Ballintoy Harbour is a small fishing harbour at the end of a very small, steep road, which passes the entrance to Larrybane and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. The harbour was used as the scene of The Iron Islands in HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Follow in the footsteps of giants and hear the marvellous tale of Finn McCool. Declared a UNESCO Heritage Site, the causeway was formed 60 million years ago by volcanic eruptions. The iconic, basalt columns, along with the coastal views, will mesmerise and inspire.
Game of Thrones fans will recognise this 16th century castle as the House of Greyjoy. The castle has its own ‘real life’ drama, including the legend of a banshee and how the kitchen (including the kitchen staff) fell into the sea on a dark and stormy evening.
Old Bushmills Distillery
This is Ireland’s oldest working distillery and home, of course, of the famous Bushmills Irish Whiskey. Their original permission to distil whiskey was signed by King James I in 1609. They have been distilling on this site ever since.
The Dark Hedges
The Dark Hedges is one of the most iconic scenes in Game of Thrones. You will instantly recognise it as ‘The Kings Road’. This unique avenue of Beech trees was originally planted to serve as an impressive entrance to Georgian Mansion, Gracehill House.
