Top travel vloggers have an ‘awesome’ day on the Causeway Coast

Vagabrothers latest film showcases the Giant’s Causeway legend, the art of hurling and spectacular footage at Carrick-a-Rede

Popular travel vloggers (or video bloggers) the Vagabrothers have unveiled their latest online film, called Giant’s Causeway | Northern Ireland – the latest in a series of videos (or vlogs) all about Northern Ireland, which they are publishing this month. In September, Tourism Ireland commissioned the Vagabrothers to produce these vlogs, to showcase some of our top visitor experiences to prospective holidaymakers around the world.

This latest film includes spectacular aerial footage of the Giant’s Causeway and sees the brothers down on the stones bringing the Finn McCool legend to life and chatting about “one of the most beautiful natural formations on the planet”. They cross Carrick-a Rede rope bridge, taking time out to appreciate its spectacular views. They also pay a visit to Scullion Hurls at Loughuile, where they find out about (and try their hand at!) the ancient sport of hurling. 



The Vagabrothers are brothers Marko and Alex Ayling from California, vloggers (or video bloggers) who describe themselves as “backpackers and video bloggers on a mission to explore the world through its people”.
