What is Giant’s Causeway? 

Giant’s Causeway is an area on the northern Irish coast that is made up of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns which were the result of volcanic fissure eruptions and the subsequent cooling and weathering of the rocks. 

It also has a place where you can take the Game of Thrones Tours and enjoy the best view. There the stones formed hexagonal shapes and didn’t appear to be natural. 

There is also another explanation of the rocks and that is the story of Finn McCool who is a giant who lived in Northern Ireland and built the causeway to cross over to Scotland so he could fight a Scottish giant. However, when he arrived in Scotland he realized that the Scottish. 

Giant was far bigger and fiercer than he could imagine and he ran back across the causeway to his house. The Scottish giant saw him running and gave chase. Then Finn’s wife has the idea to dress him up as a baby to hide him from the scary giant.
