Day 7:

Giant's Causeway - Bushmills Distillery
Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

Bushmills Distillery Visit the Old Bushmills Distillery, the World's oldest licensed Whiskey Distillery.
King James I granted the original license to distil 'Acqua Vitae' in April 1608, and since then Bushmills has been making the finest Irish Malt Whiskey here for almost four hundred years.

Giant's Causeway
Discover the spectacular rock formation of the Giant's Causeway, Unesco World Heritage. The lunar landscape of the Giant's Causeway is a geological freak, caused by volcanic eruptions, and cooling lava. But the ancients knew differently: clearly this was giants' work and, more particularly, the work of the giant Finn McCool, the Ulster warrior and commander of the king of Ireland's armies.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge
Walk on the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, primarily a 'seasonal' working bridge for the fishermen, it is nowadays more widely used by passing visitor's and marketed as a tourist attraction.
