From the spectacular nine Glens of Antrim to the Giants Causeway World heritage site and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge; from the rugged coastline of Torr Head and Murlough Bay to the unsurpassed beauty of Rathlin Island; from the quiet charm of sleepy villages such as Bushmills, Ballintoy and Cushendun to the bustle of Ballycastle, a friendly market town - this region of Northern Ireland is famous the world over for its history, its legends and the genuine warmth of its hospitality.
