Awaken your Giant Spirit

  1. A group from the Toast The Coast food tour being welcomed into Glenarm Castle Estate Tearooms.

    For a short, but perfectly formed break away, there’s no better place than County Antrim. So say goodbye to Belfast city - just for now – and turn towards the open road. And what a road it is. 

  2. Sallagh Braes in the Glens of Antrim

    Antrim is a county with big stories to tell. It’s home to Northern Ireland’s capital city, Belfast, birth place of the Titanic, the world-famous Giant’s Causeway, and it serves as a great launching pad for travels across the rest of Northern Ireland. 
     

  3. Dunluce Castle is located dramatically close to a headland that plunges straight into the sea, along the North County Antrim coast.
    1. On the thrilling Gobbins Experience, nature isn’t content to just sit back and be admired. It completely engulfs you: from the all-enveloping Irish Sea winds and the dolphins dancing off the coastline.
      1. Activities & Attractions
        Antrim’s position in the north-east corner has given it a central role in the history of Northern Ireland and its neighbours. The county is peppered with some of the finest castles and historic heritage sites on the island. As you make your way around, it’s not hard to see why it has been chosen as the location for so many TV shows and movies known for their epic grandeur and scale.
      2. Food & Drink
        Visitors to Antrim are spoilt for choice when it comes to food and drink. While Belfast is a lively city, it’s also surrounded by small market towns and villages that are awash with artisan food makers and top-class restaurants that pride themselves on using fresh local produce.
      3. Accommodation
        There is so much to see and do in County Antrim that by day’s end you’ll need to take your happy but weary bones to a place of comfort, peace and replenishment. Dotted throughout the county, you’ll find top-class resting places to suit every budget. Whether it’s a B&B or five-star hotel, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome.
      4. Waves crashing on to the rocks at the Giant's Causeway with the sun setting on the basalt columns.

        From the mythical to the magical, the historic to the romantic, the cool to the quirky, County Antrim is an adventure playground for travellers wanting an out-of-the-ordinary experience. There are ancient geographical formations and ancient castles, waterfall gardens and surfer beaches, heart-stopping scenery and heart-racing activities. So, if you’ve just got a few days to discover it all, here are some ideas to get you started.
