What you see
Depart Belfast at 8.30 am, and head north along Belfast Lough passing Carrickfergus Castle, an 800 year old Norman Castle.
Travelling on along the Antrim coastal road, one the world's most spectacular drives, you will pass through Glenarm , Carlough, Cushendall and Ballycastle famous for its unique 400 year old 'Auld Lammas Fair'.
We could then stop at Ballintoy harbour and village before we reach The Carrick -a - Rede Rope Bridge, which is almost 100 feet above the sea and has linked Carrick Island to the mainland for over 350 years.
It is well worth crossing for the amazing views, and also the thrill!
You will need to book tickets and a time slot for this, especially in busy periods. We can help you with this.
We then travel northward to The Giants Causeway, arguably Northern Ireland's most popular tourist site. Myth & legend tells that it is the result of a fight between two giants, Finn Mac Cumhaill (Finn Mc Cool) and Scottish giant Benandonner.
Visit the impressive Giants Causeway Visitor Centre, and discover the amazing facts about this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Entrance to the site if free but there is an entrance fee to the interactive exibition centre.
A short drive along the coast we reach the spectacular Dunluce Castle. Built by the Mac Donnell clan in the 1500's, it has a long and chequered history. Situated precariously on the craggy Antrim Coast, it was only abandoned in 1639, when on one stormy night the kitchen and its staff fell into the sea.
Explore the remaining cobbled streets and merchant houses, alongside the findings of archaeological digs.
Just a few miles away is the picturesque small town of Bushmills, home of the world famous Whiskey Distillery where Bushmills Whiskey has been distilled since 1608 (Ireland's oldest working distillery).
