The County Antrim region

This is a region steeped in history and legend. Dunluce Castle is over a 1000 years old and was the ancestral home of Sorley Boy MacDonnell who defended the North Coast against attack by the English army. Subsequently a number of Armada ships were wrecked nearby and their cannons salvaged for the castle.

The giant Finn McCool is reputed to have built the Giant Causeway as a stepping stone to Scotland which is just 12 miles away from this coast line. Nearby the Carick-a-rede rope bridge sways 25 metres above the treacherous rocks and is still used by salmon fisherman

Bushmills holds the distillery which has been producing whiskey for over 500 years.

The Antrim coast road was built to allow access to the Glens of Antrim which suffered badly in the Great potato famine of the 1840s.The road between Carnlough and Cushendall hugs the coast closer than any other in Europe.

Rathlin Island lies just off the coast and can be accessed by speedboat or ferry from Ballycastle. With just 100 inhabitants on the island there is a huge bird sanctuary on the western side of the island with puffins, gannets and peregrine falcons to be viewed from the lighthouse. Robert the Bruce sheltered here in a cave in 1306 and wrote his famous spider poem. A number of ships were wrecked here during the second world war and the war graves can be seen in the chapel and in Ballycastle.

The coast between Ballycastle and Cushendun by the scenic coastal route takes in the breathtakingly beautiful Murlough Bay where Roger Casement a famous Irish patriot and local of Ballycastle who was executed in 1916, requested to be buried.


The Antrim Coast has become renowned for attractions such as the golf courses of Ballycastle and the championship golf links at Royal Portrush, its golden beaches, surfing, jet skiing, superb bars and restaurants and of course its welcoming atmosphere.

Glenariff Forest park has a well planned walk way around a vast number of waterfalls. The longest walk is a three hour mountain trail.

There are festivals in Cushendun, Cushendall and Ballycastle throughout the summer.

"Beautiful but remote."

I can not fault the Bay Apartments one bit, we arrived to be welcomed by Nancy (the caretaker) who had just finished getting the apartment ready for us. I travelled with my husband, 3 children (1 teenager, 1 toddler & a 4 month old) my sister & her 2 teenage children. We all had plenty of room and everything in the kitchen was spot on. We had breakfast & dinner in each evening & lunch out each day as we were travelled around. On our final day we decided to stay local & start into our packing. We had a tasty & well priced lunch in the local tea-room. The shop was only a short walk from the apartment & they shocked a wide choice. My only downside was poor phone reception & NO Internet access, but as the week went on I realised that that was a good thing, no interruptions from the outside world. For anyone travelling to Cushendun it is a great base point to go see all that Antrim has to offer, Giants Causeway. Carrick-a-rede robe bridge, Torr Head, Portrush, Ballymoney, Bushmills & Ballycastle. And Belfast is just an hours drive away. I would recommend the Bay Apartments & Co Antrim highly.
