    One of the most incredible places and characteristic of Ireland provides visitors with an enchanted landscape where at each step you seem may seem a storybook character. A must visit

    The trees more than a century old that I hope will survive the constant stream of tourists who for some of them allow themselves to leave a trace of their passage by engraving their name sometimes very deeply in their bark... heartbreaking not to say criminal

    The Dark Hedges is a natural woodland phenomenon, which is worth stopping at on the way to the Giants Causeway if you have the time.  more »

    Even if you're not a game of thrones fan you should check it out if you're in the area. A quick stop. And a nice short walk up and down the road. I really don't see a reason to give it a miss if you're gonna be nearby.

    Very interesting site to visit. It is a quick stop as you really can just walk and take pictures. The parking is better at the top of the hill and there are some informational posters. It is very busy but beautiful!

    DON'T be rude by parking in the middle of this road!!! Park at the end and walk towards the middle. My wife and I waited at least 30 minutes for enough people to leave to get a good picture. Beautiful site, check this place out!!!

    Fabulous place BUT a victim of its own success. The local council are "considering" closing the road. This is absolutely vital alongside the necessary parking facilities.

    Love these trees so much, so cool to see in person. Beautiful intertwined branches. Definitely love being here.
