The Giant’s Boot
At the end of a small path leading to the sea, lays one of the Giant’s Causeway’s most famous sights – a size 93.5 stone boot!
Legend has it Irish giant, Finn McCool, left his boot behind, as he fled from the raging Scottish giant, Benandonner.
The Wishing Chair
Do you have a wish you would like to magically come true? Many believe that all you have to do is make your wish while sitting on the basalt stone Wishing Chair.
So, care to take a seat?
Rumour has it Finn McCool was so heavy that only one animal could carry him across long distances – his famous pet camel.
According to the legend, one day the camel turned to stone and if you look closely, you can still spot it hidden in the rocks at the bottom of County Antrim’s cliffs.
