The County Antrim region
Northern Ireland's Causeway Coast & Glens is an area whose breathtaking and rugged coastline merges into the romantic landscape of its deep silent glens and lush forest parks. The wonders don't stop there as the region has been made famous by the Causeway Coastal Route which is seen as 'One of the World's Great Road Journeys' and one of the most outstanding scenic touring drives in the world.
The route is an odyssey of astonishing natural landscapes, from patchwork hills, mountain streams and waterfalls to a dazzling coastal road with majestic cliffs, golden sands and the unique glory that is the Giant's Causeway where 40,000 mainly six-sided basalt columns creat an eerie landscape jutting into the ocean.
This is the place to indulge your taste for adventure. If it's an adrenalin-rush you're after, what about scuba-diving onto the wrecks that litter our coastline; reaching the dizzy heights by gliding in the rolling thermal currents over Magilligan; riding the rolling waves as they come off the Atlantic . . . or stepping out onto the infamous rope bridge at Carrick-a-Rede for a death-defying (and wobbling!) walk between the safety of the shoreline cliff and a nearby island?
The choice is yours - and there are hundreds of choices to make.
You don't have to be 'Action Man' to get active in the Causeway Coast and Glens. Activity options encompass everything from art to hovercrafting . . . and a whole lot in between. Whether you plan to polish your perfomance or try your hand at something new, there's bound to be an activity here that's perfect for you.
The local Bushmills area is the very central point for all the north coast has to offer.
In addition Bushmills Irish Whiskey is made at Ireland's oldest working distillery, situated on the Causeway Coast. Watch whiskey making take place, and enjoy a wee taster too, as the secrets of 400 years of distilling at the home of Irish whiskey is unlocked.
Take a truly heritage experience travelling on a steam locomotive along a magnificent coastal stretch of line between Bushmills and the World Heritage Site at the Giant's Causeway.
A 15 minutes drive provides access to 6 beautiful beaches as well as many of the major activity and heritage attractions the coast has to offer.

"A real find"
Having spent week here in June 2013, we thought the Place Above was a bit of a find. It's in a beautiful, quiet, rural location with lovely views but in easy reach of The Causeway Coast.
The apartment was light and airy, with everything we needed. Lovely décor and soft furnishings, lots of room, free WiFi, decent TV(s) and a very friendly welcome from Geoff. Highly recommended.

"Fabulous rental, excellent location, wonderful host"
The loft apartment is very spacious and lovely. The kitchen is well appointed and has everything you need including a washer dryer. The bedrooms were very comfortable. The bathroom had both a tub and a shower with little extras like a candle and bubble bath. Wifi was available including a computer. The owner, Geoff, checked in with us every day to make sure we had everything we needed and offered suggestions on things to do and restaurants to try. We have stayed in many rental apartments while traveling and this is one of the best. We would highly recommend this rental.
