The Causeway Coast is the location of the Giants Causeway World Heritage site.
Northern Ireland's Causeway Coast & Glens – 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.
Fish and tackle supplies in Main Street. Fishing permits available here also. River Bush runs through Bushmills and fishing permits are needed to fish for a variety of fish and in particular the salmon which appear at the bridge or salmon leap. Fishing rods for children (approximate cost £ 10 ) have successfully caught fish from the sea off the rocks at Dunseverick and Balintoy Harbours.
The Giant's Causeway visitor's centre is just 4 miles away by road although the Causeway cliff top path runs between the Causeway and Dunseverick Castle. The coastal path runs west from Whitepark Beach (10min Walk from the lodge) to Portbradden Harbour, Dunseverick Castle and on to the Causeway or east to Ballintoy harbour (with a welcoming coffee shop) and on to the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge (National trust coffee shop). The coastal path runs for approximately 18 miles in total. with spectacular views of the coast, Rathlin Island, the Mull of Kintyre and the Scottish islands of Islay and Jura.
The Causeway Rambler bus runs hourly along a circular route from Bushmills to Carrick-a-rede throughout the summer permitting visitors with a hop-on, hop-off opportunity. The bus stops at the bottom of Moycraig Road.
The harbour provides the opportunity to while away a few hours watching small fishing boats bringing home the catch of the day or children dangling crab lines over the harbour wall. A small museum provides visitors with a chance to see interesting artefacts of by-gone days. If you are feeling a bit more active you could take a swim in the rock pool near the harbour or walk further along the coastal path which will lead you the 1.5 miles to Portbradden harbour - a small row of brightly coloured cottages and where the smallest Church in Ireland can be visited.
There are a number of excellent golf courses within easy travelling distance of the Lodge including the Royal Portrush Golf Course which is one of the best and most challenging links golf courses in the world. Also nearby is Portstewart Golf Club which has 45 holes over 3 courses, CastleRock G.C , Ballycastle G.C. and closer still is Bushfoot Golf Club or Grace Hill an American styled parklands course.
Horse riding is available at a number of venues nearby including the Island Equestrian Centre near Coleraine and MaddyBenny Stud.
Cycle along the local coastline and you will be rewarded by magnificent views of Rathlin Island, making short detours to explore quaint harbours and beautiful beaches and enjoy ancient ruins and dramatic cliff scenery.
