The Giant's Causeway is a mysterious collection of probably millions of narrow, cylindrical stone structures that span across the Irish Sea between Ireland and Scotland.
The causeway was created when the Irish giant, Finn McCool, threw the rocks into the sea to create a bridge to Scotland because he wanted to fight a Scottish giant, Benandonner.
Geologists, however, who are an unimaginative lot, insist that the basalt structures are from the remains of volcano.
Personally I'm sticking to the Finn McCool story. I don't see how the rocks could look so man (or giant) made but be naturally constructed.

These cylindrical rocks continue into the water and reach all the way to the shore of Scotland.
