Places of Interest

The cottages are perfectly located for exploring all the attractions around the North Coast. Giants Causeway World Heritage SiteThe Giant's Causeway (Clochán na bhFómharach) is situated near Bushmills, County Antrim, on the north antrim coast. The Giant's Causeway is a series of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns formed from the cooling lava flow of an ancient volcanic eruption. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986 and is today owned by the UK's National Trust charity. Generally considered as one of the Worlds greatest natural wonders.

In addition to the impressive array of basalt columns, the Causeway Coast offers 12 miles of walking, along cliff faces with Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridgesome of the world's rarest flora and fauna residing close by, and finishing near the famous Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge. Walk across the breath taking rope bridge to Carrick-a-rede island and enjoy a truly cliff top experience. Traditionally a rope bridge was erected by local salmon fishermen to cross chasm to access their fishing nets in the waters below.

A private railway exists between the Giant's Causeway and the Bushmills Distillery (the world's oldest legal whisky distillery) and provides a link to warm your cockles after being buffeted by the Atlantic breeze down on the shoreline.

Admission to the Giant's Causeway coastal path and site is free, but donations are accepted and will help maintain this distinct landscape and natural beauty.
