& East Antrim
Spellbinding adventures that
leave you ravenous for more
Many pass through to get to where they’re going. But true
pathfinders know there’s much to be had from rambling slowly,
savouring each step of the journey. You follow the call of your
curiosity down winding tracks and it’s led you here. To drinking
champagne in the home of an earl, tottering on the edge of
wild, weather-beaten cliff paths, and gathering around the fire
as a storyteller tells their tales.
To help plan your next adventure, we’ve hand-picked
some of the best places to discover across Mid & East Antrim.
Whitehead & Islandmagee
Whitehead is a postcard-perfect town, a relic from a bygone era. The late Victorians and early Edwardians flocked to this charming seaside resort and more than a century later it still retains all its quirk, colour, and charm. Islandmagee is just a short drive away from Whitehead offering rural tranquillity and plenty of Vitamin Sea.
With so much to see and do, it’s the perfect destination for day-trippers and long weekenders. Embrace your wild side as you take on the wildest cliff-walk in Europe at The Gobbins. Follow the Blackhead Coastal Path up to the iconic lighthouse. Or explore Whitehead’s railway heritage as you come face to face with the giants of steam at Whitehead Railway Museum.
Glenarm & Carnlough
Venture into a region steeped in legend & lore, a landscape shrouded in story and song. With weaving miles of rugged coastline and glens rolling down to the sea, adventure awaits you at every turn.
Step back in time to a fairy-tale castle and walled garden that is a haven for botanists, foodies and Instagrammers. Meander through the ancient canopy of Glenarm Forest – breathe in the aroma of wild garlic in spring or go red-squirrel spotting. Or try out your sea legs in Carnlough. Set sail from the harbour in an original fishing vessel or experience life beneath the surf on an underwater snorkelling adventure.
