GIANT'S CAUSEWAY & THE NINE GLENS




Walking amongst Northern Ireland’s magnificent coastal countryside with a chance to see one of nature’s most bizarre
rock formations.

The Coast and Glens of Antrim is a beautiful area; a tranquil land of open moorland rolling down to sea cliffs and beaches. The villages along the coast have a relaxed way of life and the natural barrier of the Antrim mountains has meant this north east corner of the country has traditionally been better connected to Scotland (only 10 miles away) than the rest of Ireland.

The beauty of Northern Ireland’s countryside is impressive and there’s lots to explore. We’re within easy reach of the iconic hexagonal rocks 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.




WALKING GRADES


Grade D walks are either half or full days, with walks of approximately 3 or 5 hours at a moderate pace over hilly terrain. Expect ascents and descents of up to 600m. Grade D+ walks will be full days, of up to 6 hours, and could involve as much as 750m of ascent and descent, paths are mostly good, but there may be some steep and rough ground. Some walks will be less demanding but equally rewarding.

This was my first time in Ireland and I will return because I enjoyed the scenery the walking, because the guide was excellent, the weather, the accommodation and food. We were met at the airport, the transport was good, the B&B and food there was very good and the evening meals in Harry's restaurant very good. I met very friendly people and had a good time.
