The Bushmills / Portballintrae area
What better way to get right into the heart of the Irish countryside than by walking or cycling. They are ideal ways to discover the true beauty and charm of Ireland and it's people, and you can do it at your own pace.
Enjoy a leisurely walk or cycle down un-crowded roads and explore the beautiful, often spectacular, scenery along the way.
At the foot of the basaltic cliffs along the sea coast at the edge of the Antrim Plateau in Northern Ireland, the Giant's Causeway is made up of some 40,000 massive black columns sticking out of the sea. The dramatic sight has inspired legends of giants striding over the sea to Scotland. The study of these formations by geologists for 300 years has greatly contributed to the development of the earth sciences, and shown that this striking landscape was caused by volcanic activities during the Tertiary Period some 50-60 million years ago.
Royal Portrush Golf Club
One of three 'Royal' courses in Northern Ireland, Portrush is steeped in history both golfing and otherwise, being overlooked by the ruins of Dunluce Castle. The only course in Ireland to have hosted the Open Championship (1951, when Max Faulkner won) it is on everybody's short-list of top Irish courses, a great test of any golfer's shot-making and nerve.
The Old Bushmills Distillery is the World's oldest licensed Whiskey Distillery. King James I granted the original License to distil 'Aqua Vitae' in April 1608 and since then Bushmills has been making the finest Irish Malt Whiskey here for almost four hundred years.
Situated just a mile from the spectacular Giant's Causeway, the distillery lies in an area of outstanding natural beauty and rich in history and folklore.
Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge
Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge is situated between Ballycastle and Ballintoy. One of the most famous things to do in Northern Ireland is to walk across this narrow, scary, swinging rope bridge hovering 80 feet above the sea.
Constructed of rope and wooden planks this bridge is connected to a very small offshore island from the mainland and can only be accessed during the summer months as it is removed before winter comes. Only the brave will cross this bridge as it sways to and fro in the wind!
Erected in early May and taken down in mid-September where its main purpose was for the access to the salmon fishery on the small steep island sixty feet away.
Dunluce Castle was built by Richard de Burgh, the Earl of Ulster. In 1584 it fell to the famous battle hardy MacDonnell clan who ruled this north eastern corner of Ireland in the 16th century. In 1588 the MacDonnells used their helping of the treasures from the Spanish Armada ship the Girona, wrecked off the Giant's Causeway, to refurbish the castle. However, in 1639, during a violent storm, part of the castle fell into the sea after which it was abandoned by the MacDonnells. It has a breathtaking location perched on a cliff top along the spectacular Antrim coast.
There are many many more attractions.
