Self-catering holidays in County Antrim, Northern Ireland
The mythical giant Fiann McCool, through acts of temper, seems to have been responsible for creating geographical and geological wonders in County Antrim. Lough Neagh was said to have been formed when Fiann scooped a handful of mud out of Ireland and threw it into the Irish Sea where it became the Isle of Mann. It is the largest lake in the British Isles and famous for trout fishing.
The lakeland environment is a natural location for sailing and a variety of other watersports. A series of trails for horse riding, walking and cycling called the Wetlands Way runs to the south of the lake. The other great geological feature said to have been created by Fiann is the Giant's Causeway.
At this World Heritage site, you can wonder at the perfectly hexagonal basalt columns, which appear to form a road stretching out into the Irish Sea. Of course, it is now known that this unique geological feature was formed 55 million years ago by volcanic activity.
There is a visitor centre on site which tells the story of the Causeway's formation. Nearby is the Old Bushmill Distillery. Irish Whisky has been distilled here for 400 years. Come to see the production process and to taste the finished product.
