A visit to Giant’s Causeway

Giant's Causeway

This summer we created a wish list of things to do. For the kids, a visit to Giant’s Causeway was a pretty high priority!

So when Stendhal asked if we wanted to come and experience The Best Small Festival in Ireland, we didn’t take long to reach a conclusion!

Stendhal – Here we come!
