Imagine the view from the cliffs overlooking the sea to the Mull of
Kintyre. The gentle sea breeze and coconut scent of gorse hangs in
the air. Yellow flowers dot the land, picked out by the warm rays of
the sun. This is a remote and wonderful place. The hills of Antrim
reach from the sea to the skyline. Traditions have remained strong in
this land, and the hospitality, food and perhaps a pint of stout or tot
of whiskey are all here to be savoured.
The beauty of Northern Ireland’s countryside is impressive
and there is lots to explore. We’re within easy reach of the iconic
hexagonal basalt pillars of the Giant’s Causeway; Dunluce Castle,
perched on rocks above the sea and the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge,
originally built hundreds of years ago by salmon fishermen.
Cushendall, where we’re based for our week, is a short, but
spectacular and increasingly mountainous journey from the airport.
Situated at the head of Glen Ballyemon, it’s an ideal centre for a
walking holiday, extending a warm welcome to all who visit.
