GIANT'S CAUSEWAY & THE NINE GLENS

Legendary rocks and a renowned Irish welcome.

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.




WALKING GRADES


Full day walks with moderate amounts of ascent and descent. The paths are mostly good, but there may be some steep and rough ground. Walks will last up to 6 hours and could involve as much as 750m of ascent and descent. Some walks will be less demanding but equally rewarding.
