Discover the North Coast

Your Ultimate Guide to Portrush, Portstewart, and Beyond

Welcome to the heart of Northern Ireland’s stunning coastline, where adventure and relaxation meet in a landscape steeped in history and natural beauty! Whether you’re a local seeking a picturesque escape or a visitor exploring our shores, the North Coast offers a treasure trove of experiences. From the vibrant towns of Portrush and Portstewart to the awe-inspiring natural wonders and historic sites, there’s something for everyone.

Whiterocks Beach

Nestled beneath stunning limestone cliffs, Whiterocks Beach is renowned for its rolling waves and golden sands. Whether you’re a seasoned surfer or a beginner eager to catch your first wave, this Blue Flag beach offers the perfect setting. Don’t miss the chance to explore the coastal caves and arches carved by the sea if you prefer to take a stroll rather than a surf!

Dunluce Castle

Perched dramatically on the cliff edge, the ruins of Dunluce Castle can be easily explored on foot. Enjoy the remnants of this medieval fortress, and let your imagination run wild with stories of the MacQuillan and MacDonnell clans. The castle’s stunning location and its history make it a must-visit.

Portstewart Strand

With two miles of golden sand against a backdrop of rolling dunes, Portstewart Strand is a jewel in the North Coast’s crown. Managed by the National Trust, it’s a haven for walkers, swimmers, and wildlife enthusiasts. The Strand also offers a unique driving experience, as cars are permitted on the beach.

Promenade Walks

Take a leisurely walk along the scenic Portstewart Promenade. With charming cafes, ice cream parlors, and artisan shops, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a local treat while soaking in the panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Giant’s Causeway

No visit to the North Coast is complete without witnessing the Giant’s Causeway. This UNESCO World Heritage site, with its interlocking basalt columns, is a masterpiece of nature. According to legend, the causeway was built by the giant Finn McCool. Whether you come for the mythology or the geology, it’s an awe-inspiring sight.

Mussenden Temple and Downhill Demesne

Perched dramatically on the cliffs, Mussenden Temple offers breathtaking views of the North Atlantic and the surrounding countryside. Explore the ruins of Downhill Demesne, with its striking landscapes and historical significance. This area is a photographer’s dream and a peaceful retreat.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

For the adventurous, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge presents an exhilarating challenge. Suspended almost 100 feet above the rocks, crossing the bridge offers unparalleled views of Rathlin Island and Scotland. It’s a thrilling experience not to be missed.

Bushmills Distillery

Delve into the world of whiskey-making at the Old Bushmills Distillery, the oldest licensed distillery in the world. Take a guided tour to learn about the distillation process and enjoy a tasting of their renowned whiskeys. It’s a warm welcome to Irish culture and craftsmanship.

The Dark Hedges

Famed for its appearance in ‘Game of Thrones’, the Dark Hedges is a stunning avenue of beech trees planted in the 18th century. This atmospheric road is a favourite for photographers and visitors alike, offering a magical walk through history.

Ballintoy Harbour

Discover the quaint charm of Ballintoy Harbour, a small fishing harbour that offers serene views and a peaceful atmosphere. It’s another ‘Game of Thrones’ filming location, but its beauty and tranquillity are the real stars.

Binevenagh

For breathtaking views, head to Binevenagh. This dramatic mountain area, part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers panoramic vistas over Lough Foyle and the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a perfect spot for hiking and paragliding enthusiasts.
