Temporary closure of Gobbins attraction due to rock fall

Posted by Tourism NI

Published June 20, 2016

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council closed The Gobbins cliff path on Monday 20 June, due to an increase in recorded levels of natural rockfall.


As a coastal visitor experience exposed to the elements, The Gobbins will require ongoing routine maintenance involving scaling of the cliff face to mitigate the effects of coastal erosion on the path. A process of scaling has now been commenced and while this is ongoing, it would be unsafe for visitors to use the path.

We expect this work to take two to three weeks to complete and this will reduce significantly any natural rockfall thereafter.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
