Northern Ireland

Hike the Gobbins Path

Nestled on the rugged coast of Northern Ireland lies a walkway like no other. The Gobbins Path, a spectacular coastal trail snaking along the County Antrim shoreline, has long been considered a hidden gem of Northern Ireland. With its stunning views of the Irish Sea and unique blend of natural beauty and man-made engineering, it’s no wonder that this path has become one of Northern Ireland’s must-see attractions.

The Gobbins Path is not for those who shy away from adventure; it takes visitors through narrow cliff tunnels, over suspension bridges and into caves with names such as “The Eye of the Needle” and “The Grand Entrance Hall”. It’s a spectacularly unique experience for those who love to explore the great outdoors.

Originally opened in 1902, this iconic attraction has undergone significant renovations over recent years to ensure it remains accessible for future generations. Now spanning approximately 1.2 miles, with bridges and tunnels carved into the cliffs, the Gobbins Path is an awe-inspiring feat of engineering that must be seen to be believed.

The cliffs are not only renowned for their dramatic scenery but also recognised for their rich birdlife. Visitors can spot a variety of seabirds such as puffins, guillemots and kittiwakes nesting on the cliff faces. With its unique combination of natural beauty and wildlife diversity, The Gobbins Path offers an unforgettable experience for all who visit.
