Drive along the beautiful Antrim Coast Road (voted one of the best drives in the world) to visit Northern Ireland’s number one attraction – the Giant’s Causeway. You will want to stop en route in some of the pretty coastal villages such as Cushendun and visit Tor Head and Fair Head which boast some of the most stunning scenery in Ireland. Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge is high on the list of many visitors and you can stop here before reaching the Giant’s Causeway. Have your camera ready for all of these scenic attractions. Cushendun is approximately 40 minutes drive away and the Giant’s Causeway 1.5 hours. You can finish off your day by visiting Bushmills, the world’s oldest ‘legal’ distillery which is about 5 minutes away from the Giant’s Causeway.
Visit Belfast (approximately 30 minute drive, or you can take the bus or train from Larne). Belfast has much to offer: an open top bus tour is a great way of getting acquainted with the city and learning about it’s history and landmarks. The local guides on the buses are amusing and informative. For museum lovers, a trip to the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum (15 minutes from the city centre) is an interesting way of seeing how people used to live and work. Next to the Botanical Gardens near Queen’s University is the newly renovated Ulster Museum. You may also visit the Titanic Quarter and learn about the world’s most famous ship. Belfast is also an excellent place to shop.
Visit The Gobbinbs Cliff Path (thegobbinscliffpath.com). Walking the cliff path at The Gobbins will be an exhilarating adventure that will excite all the senses. If you want a relaxed day, you can spend it in the Glens of Antrim. A walk in Glenariff Forest Park to see its majestic waterfall is truly relaxing. En route you could visit the gardens at Glenarm Castle (a 10 minute drive), walk in Glenarm Forest and have a coffee in the village or the Castle Tea Rooms. Alternatively, you may want to visit Newcastle (one hour away) with its golden beach and the famous Mountains of Mourne which, as the song goes “sweep down to the sea”.
