Start in Ballycastle.

Ballintoy
After leaving the town of Ballycastle, the Causeway Coast Way takes walkers along a variety of rural roads and forest trails, always following the coastline as closely as possible. Some areas of interest that you will be passing are Kinbane Castle, built in 1547. This two-storey castle was the site or many a siege and battle through the 18th century. You will also see today the world-famous Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge: the bridge spans a 30-metre deep and 20-metre wide chasm and was originally erected by salmon fishermen. The island has been used for salmon fishing for more than 350 years. If you do wish to cross there is a charge of £4-6 depending on group size (not included). From the rope bridge it is only a short walk to you accommodation for the evening.

Giants Causeway

The village of Ballintoy was used for the fictional town of Lordsport in the second season of TV series Game of Thrones, if you are a fan you might spot some familiar landscapes. As you leave Ballintoy walkers will be following the coastline along beaches, grassy cliff top trails and small rural roads. Highlights for the day include St Gobban’s church rumoured to be the smallest church in Ireland and the iconic Giants Causeway. A short detour to the ruins of Dunseverick Castle and following a cliff top path will take you around Benbane Head to the UNESCO World Heritage Site and Nature Reserve of the Giants Causeway. This world-famous landscape consisting of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns is the result of an ancient volcanic eruption (entrance fee not included).

Local legend would argue that it is was constructed by a giant from Ireland Fionn MacCool, when he was challenged to a fight by the Scottish giant Benandonner. Fionn accepted the challenge and built the causeway across the North Channel so that the two giants could meet (depending on whether you are from Ireland or Scotland this is where the two stories differ). In one version of the story, Fionn defeats Benandonner and in another, Fionn hides from Benandonner when he realises that his foe is much bigger than he is. Fionn’s wife, Oonagh, disguises Fionn as a baby and tucks him in a cradle. When Benandonner sees the size of the ‘baby’, he thinks that his father, Fionn, must be a giant among giants. He flees back to Scotland, destroying the causeway behind him so that Fionn could not follow.
The Giants Causeway is the finish of the ‘Short Break’.
