MEI Cultural Spotlight #5 – The Giants Causeway

March 03, 2016

Located in County Antrim in the North of Ireland, the Giants Causeway is a site of natural and cultural beauty. For centuries countless visitors have marvelled at the majesty and mystery of the Giants Causeway. At the heart of one of Europe’s most magnificent coastlines its unique rock formations have, for millions of years, stood as a natural rampart against the unbridled ferocity of Atlantic storms.
