Giant's Causeway & the Nine Glens

Legendary rocks and a renowned Irish welcome.
Overview

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.
