One of Northern Ireland’s most exhilarating tourist attractions has re-opened to the public and is getting ready for another busy summer season.
The Gobbins is a spectacular coastal walk on the Causeway Coastal Route, which was voted Lonely Planet’s number one region in the world to visit in 2018.
This year’s visitor experience is expected to be better than ever with full access to all areas of the attraction, with the coastal path, cliff path and viewing platform all open to the public.
Visitors to The Gobbins will make their way along the base of the dramatic cliffs, crossing bridges, access tunnels and narrow walkways.
With an abundance of wildlife in the area, the incredible suspension bridge provides an expansive viewing point over a nesting place for seabirds.
The 1.2 mile-long cliff walk is one of the most ambitious engineering projects ever seen in Northern Ireland and was originally built in the early 20th century. Guided tours along the path will allow visitors to enjoy the coast of the Irish Sea in a way they have not been able to in over 50 years.
The Gobbins will excite all the senses, and be the closest visitors will get to walking on water. There’s also a visitor centre with interactive exhibits located a short distance away from The Gobbins.
Online booking is now open for public tours of The Gobbins, with tour slots available every half hour.
