The Gobbins Cliff Path
On the very edge of the Irish Sea lie the Gobbins Cliffs, opening on the 19th August , 2015 as a spectacular cliff path walk. Not for the feint hearted the walk is being described as a white knuckle experience but what an experience!! The Gobbins was first opened in 1902 by the Edwardians and was as big an attraction as the Giants Causeway. The path with its iconic metal bridges, erie caves and extraordinary scenery became derelict and a scheme to restore this feat of engineering started several years ago running into major logistical problems as it progressed. Hovever it is now finished and is set again to become one of Northern Ireland's major attractions. the visitor center on Islandmagee (accessable by a causeway) will have a virtual walking experience for those less able amongst us with the guided walk bookable online to ensure a place. There is a 4' height restriction with no exceptions so it is not suitable for young children. Do visit the website as the history , geology, wildlife and attractions along the walk are fully explained. Have fun!
