High cliffs, hidden ledges and rich fishing make The Gobbins a magnet for many kinds of birds, one reason it is An Area of Special Scientific Interest.

Northern Ireland's only mainland colony of colourful Puffins dig burrows here to lay their eggs. Guillemots and Razorbills crowd the cliffs during breeding season. Cormorants are a striking sight as they dive deep for fish. Kittiwakes and Shags can also be seen here.

Great care has been taken to ensure the reimagined path at The Gobbins does not impact on the local birdlife.

Thanks to the very different habitats created by the sea, rocks and cliffs, a great variety of plants, ferns and grasses can be found amongst the caves, ledges and rocks of The Gobbins. The path allows visitors rare access to treasures such as the bell- like sea campion, kidney vetch and spleenwort.
