It has often been described as the 8th wonder of the world. You will see why once you have visited the place. This is one of the world's greatest natural attractions. According to mythology, Finn built the Causeway as stepping stones to cross the Irish sea in order to battle Benandonner, a Scottish giant.

Finn’s wife disguised him as a baby, and on seeing the child, Benandonner fled home fearing how enormous its father must be.
