Take a trip along the Causeway Coast to discover where Northern Ireland gets its giant reputation. Named after the famous basalt steps of the Giant’s Causeway, this epic stretch of coastline is studded with cosy seaside villages, exhilarating cliff walks and fabulous food experiences.

I’ve always maintained that Northern Ireland is the world’s best kept secret, both in the character of its people and its scenery.

But there's so much more to Northern Ireland than its coastline. Fermanagh’s lakes and underground caves are brimming with myths and mysteries. The dark skies above the Sperrin Mountains are a stargazer's delight. And the panoramic views from the peaks of the Mournes – Northern Ireland’s highest mountain range – will make you feel like you’re on top of the world.
