Enjoy a visit to the Giant's Causeway when staying at the Everglades Hotel
Often described as the Eighth Wonder of the World, the Giant's Causeway is located along the scenic Causeway Costal Route, approximately 40 miles from the Everglades Hotel, in Derry-Londonderry.
Flanked by the wild North Atlantic Ocean and a landscape of dramatic cliffs, for centuries the Giant’s Causeway has inspired artists, stirred scientific debate and captured the imagination of all who see it.
The Giant's Causeway is renowned for its polygonal columns of layered basalt and is steeped in myth and legend that intrigues both adults and children a like. According to legend, the columns are the remains of a causeway built by the Irish giant Fionn mac Cumhaill (Finn MacCool) who 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!!
Unlock the mystery and stories of the landscape in the exhibition area of our award-winning Visitor Centre, which comprises a café serving seasonal, regional fayre, and retail zone where you can pick up locally-sourced memories of your causeway trip in the form of beautiful souvenirs and handicrafts.
