The Gobbins is a spectacular coastal walk situated along the Causeway Coastal Route, voted number one region in the world to visit in 2018 by Lonely Planet. Australia’s Daily Telegraph also named The Gobbins as one of the world’s best tourist destinations.
Online booking is now open for summer bookings from 28 April, with tour slots available every half hour. This year there will be access to all areas of the attraction, with the full cliff path, upper path and viewing platform now open to the public.
The Gobbins Experience
The Gobbins path is a 2.5 hour fully guided walking tour offering visitors the opportunity to experience the abundance of nature, which exists along this dramatic coastline.
Originally opened in 1902, the path has been restored and is now enjoyed by visitors from across the world due to its dramatic location.
Weaving its way along the basalt cliffs of the famous Causeway Coast, you will go across suspension bridges, through tunnels and along pathways in an up close and personal experience of the spectacular coastline. As they travel along the path, visitors will hear about the geology and biodiversity of the area, well as the history attached to the location.
Looking down to the sheltered waters, an abundance of wildlife is often visible and the suspension bridge provides an expansive viewing point over a nesting place for seabirds.
Visitors to The Gobbins cliff path should be aware that it requires a reasonable level of fitness and there is a height restriction (minimum 1.2m/4ft).
The Visitor Centre is open to the public and contains an interpretive area, shop and café.
To access attraction, bookings are essential.
Redevelopment of this attraction was possible thanks to £7.5M of funding from the EU’s INTERREG IVA Programme, managed by the SEUPB and administered by the North East Partnership; Mid and East Antrim Borough Council and the Ulster Garden Villages organisation.
