The Coastal region of County Antrim is truly beautiful as evidenced by the Causeway Coastal Route which is rightly regarded as one of the most scenic drives in the world. From Belfast, hugging the rugged and spectacular coastline, the road meanders through picturesque villages and towns past Carrickfergus and the nine glens of Antrim to Ballycastle, then on to Ballintoy, recently made famous by the filming of the beautiful harbour for 'Game Of Thrones', Bushmills with the world famous Giant's Causeway and the ' World's oldest commercial Distillery .It continues to Portrush and Portstewart with their wonderful beaches and Golf courses (Royal Portrush -Irish Open 2012), through Limavady and finishes up in historic Londonderry(Derry). The route is strewn with ancient sites and landmarks which trace the turbulent and significant history of this region from medieval times to the modern day.
Heading inland the region is fertile farming land with prosperous market towns such as Ballymena, Ballymoney and Coleraine and for those fans of 'Game Of Thrones', the Dark Hedges' outside Ballymoney is a must visit.
Visitors are always impressed by the lush green of the landscape and this is mainly due to our fairly high rainfall although most of it is 'soft' and our temperatures are 'moderate' seldom falling below freezing or rising above 75F.
