The Gobbins is Northern Ireland's most unique coastal walk - a dramatic, two-mile-long cliff-face path.

The stunning coastal cliff path walk, located in Islandmagee, allows visitors to uncover the once hidden gem of the Antrim coast and indulge in an exhilarating cliff path walk. The Gobbins is a reimagined treasure that has brought what was once a thriving 1900's hotspot into the 21st century.
The dramatic and challenging two-mile-long cliff-face path includes spectacular tubular and suspension bridges, caves, steps, and tunnels that are all carved through the rock. The Gobbins is a fascinating attraction that is soaked in heritage and offers visitors breath-taking views of the rugged North Coast.

Along the trail, you will get up close to a diverse range of wildlife and gain privileged access to Northern Ireland's only mainland colony of puffins, alongside various other bird species.
Please note, the cliff path walk requires a reasonable level of fitness and there is also a height restriction in place. Pre-booking of the tour is essential. Please book by calling the Gobbins Visitor Centre on 028 9337 2318 or via the website
Please be aware of all visitor guidelines around accessing the attraction (available on the website), to avoid disappointment.
