Giant's Causeway Clifftop Experience relaunched - hike times and tour information

The National Trust and Northern Ireland tour company Away A Wee Walk have relaunched the Giant's Causeway Clifftop Experience hike, following its success in 2016.

The five mile hike takes visitors across the Causeway Coast’s clifftop path - from the ruin of Dunseverick Castle to Northern Ireland’s first World Heritage Site, the Giant’s Causeway.

Alastair Walker, Giant’s Causeway Site Manager, said: ‘We want to encourage people to make the most out of what this outstanding coastline has to offer.

"The Clifftop Experience is an incredible hike with an amazing view, and visitors will have the opportunity to find out all there is to know about this beautiful place and learn more about the conservation work of the National Trust across the Causeway Coast and Glens.'

Eimear Flanagan from Away a Wee Walk added: "We are thrilled to be working with the National Trust once again on this venture after last year’s success. The cliff top path is simply spectacular and the 944,000 annual visitors to the site can now experience even more of this amazing coast.’

Walking tour information

The Clifftop Experience walk departs daily from the Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre at 10.30am for the Rambler bus to Dunseverick Castle. The walk returns along the cliff tops to the Giant's Causeway and is expected to take around 31/2 hours to complete. Maximum group size is 18. Children must be age 12 years plus.
