Causeway Coast and Glens

The Causeway Coastal Route is a designated scenic tourist drive around the coast of Northern Ireland between the cities of Belfast and Londonderry. The route follows the coast and takes you to several major tourist attractions along the way including The Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Dunluce Castle, The Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery and the Glens of Antrim. There are also nine scenic loop roads that run off the main Coastal Route. These are: Islandmagee, Slemish Mountain, Glenariff, Glendun, Torr Road, Glenshesk, Bann Valley, Binevenagh Mountain and the Roe Vally.

Titanic Centre

The newly opened Titanic Centre in Belfast is an unmissable visit in any tour of Northern Ireland. It is located in the heart of Belfast, on the slipways where RMS Titanic was built.

The Brothers and Sisters Walks, on either side of the Church, meet at the burial ground or “Gods Acre“, which is still in use today.

Hi folks. Thanks for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us; it is very much appreciated. It was interesting to hear that you thought our beds were the most comfortable of any of the 5 places you stayed in while touring Ireland!! A comfortable bed was one of our primary aims when we decided to open Galgorm Getaway and we invested in quality mattresses to ensure our guests had a good nights sleep. Other criteria high on our list was a homely atmosphere and cleanliness. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and would love for you to return one day. Thank you again and our kind regards.
