The Gobbins Cliff Path

On the famous Antrim Coast you will discover the Gobbins Cliff pathway.

'The Gobbins' has its origins in the Gaelic 'An Gobain' and translates to 'the points of rock'. The Gobbins path was opened in 1902 and cut into the rock and comprised of suspended walkways and bridges a feat of engineering once more popular than the Giant's Causeway! The walk way had to sadly be closed in 1954 because so many of the spectacular metal bridges had collapsed. 

2014 saw the redevelopment of this once popular path with a new visitor centre which will include a cafe, interpretation/exhibition space, pre-tour rooms, outlet for branded memorabilia and local crafts as well as a tourist Info point. The Gobbins Cliff path will open 14th August 2015. The cliff path will veer away from the original path in some sections and will feature around 15 bridges, including a 5.4-tonne tubular bridge and a suspended bridge.

This amazing journey will take the form of a two hour fully guided tour which must be booked in advance.  You will start your walk at the visitor centre which is two miles from the cliffs themselves. You will be welcomed by an expert guide and will have a full safety briefing before being transported by bus to The Gobbins.  

The Gobbins tour is not suitable for very young children. Without exception, The Gobbins guides will not accept anyone under the height of 1.2 metres or approximately 4 feet on the tour. A good level of fitness is required to enjoy the experience.  People with cardiac, respiratory, asthmatic or joint conditions should not undertake the tour. 

The Gobbins Cliff Path attraction is located only 27 miles from Maldron Hotel Belfast at International Airport.
