Just 10 minutes drive from Giants Causeway, this small waterfall is not much to visit and is not easy to find as it is well hidden by the side of Causeway Road. The best way to get there is to follow the instructions on your GPS carefully, get out of the car even if you can’t see the waterfall, and ask a local for the exact coordinates!

Little is known about the Giants Causeway, and the site of the Carrick-a-Rede and its rope bridge attract thousands of visitors every year.

From our previous stop, Dunseveric Falls, the journey to Balintoy Harbor takes only 3 minutes by car. Once you arrive, you can take this suspension bridge and of course you can find soothing scenery if you have any left over after crossing!

The sidewalk is impassable in winter and will be closed in bad weather. But that doesn’t stop the strong attendance that passes through 250,000 tourists a year.
