The Gobbins is a dramatic, two-mile-long cliff-face path which includes spectacular tubular and suspension bridges, a staircase, caves and tunnels carved through the rock. A fully accessible cliff-top path will provide breathtaking views of the rugged North Coast.

Lovely place. The history is very interesting, views spectacular, and just a fab way to spend half a day. Staff are lovely and so friendly. Health and safety a bit OTT, hard hats seem unnecessary but understandable, but walking boots??!!!
