The Gobbins Cliff Path
A cliff path just outside the village of Islandmagee, The Gobbins Cliff Path first opened to the public in 1902, and its unique tubular bridge was, at the time, a marvel of engineering. Visitors flocked from all over Britain and Ireland to see the distinctive coastal terrain and the bridges themselves. If it was so popular, then why is it on our list of places even locals don’t know about? Well, the cliff paths closed in 1981 and only reopened in August 2015. However, the paths required maintenance in 2016, so they closed again. After this rocky history, though, The Gobbins opened once again on June 30, 2017 – here’s to hoping that they stay open for years to come.
