Rainy Days in Antrim

Indoor Adventures

While Antrim and its surroundings are renowned for their breathtaking landscapes and outdoor attractions, the weather can sometimes send you searching for shelter. But don’t let a bit of rain dampen your spirits! Within a 20-mile radius of Antrim city there are plenty of indoor activities promising fun, education, and relaxation, ensuring your adventure continues uninterrupted. Here’s a guide to the best rainy day activities in and around Antrim, perfect for those days when the weather outside is less than inviting.

Antrim Castle Gardens and Clotworthy House

While the gardens are beautiful in any weather, Clotworthy House, located within the Antrim Castle Gardens, offers a fascinating indoor retreat. Explore the art exhibitions, learn about the history of the gardens and the area, and enjoy a cup of tea at the on-site café. It’s a peaceful way to spend a rainy afternoon, surrounded by the beauty of nature and history.

The Junction Shopping and Leisure Park

If you fancy a bit of retail therapy, The Junction, located just outside Antrim, is Northern Ireland’s largest shopping and leisure complex.

World of Owls, Randalstown

A short drive from Antrim, the World of Owls offers a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with one of nature’s most fascinating predators.
