Attractions

In the northernmost reaches of Northern Ireland lies some of the most breathtaking scenery ever known.

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. Here you'll enter a world of lush green forests, sweeping glens, rugged seascapes and sleepy villages; a land of tall tales of battling giants, princesses in peril and tragic, star crossed lovers.
