The coast was magnificent

Going to the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland is not the easiest thing in the world if you don’t have a car. Hence, we joined a tour group, for the first time. The public transport system wasn’t as extensive and convenient out of Belfast, and we had a tight schedule.

The scenery along the coastline and also the glens of Antrim which we passed by was magnificent.

One of our stops was the Bushmills Distillery. Alex didn’t miss his chance to buy a bottle of special edition Bushmills Irish Whisky. He paid 45GBP for that bottle, and another 20GBP for the check-in luggage, because it would be not possible to bring it back via hand luggage. What a deal!

The Giant’s Causeway has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Needless to say, it was quite a sight. We walked on the cliffs overlooking the coast, and then walked down to the coast. It seemed to be a bit unsafe to walk along the paths exposed to a long drop.

We visited a few more attractions, but all briefly.

In conclusion, if we have the chance to visit again, it would be much more fun to get a car and drive….
