Furlough bay is one of my favourite locations in Northern ireland. Being local I guess I'm spoilt with being able to go anytime. There are several ways to get there the most direct via Ballycastle ( with a coffee stop at Ursa Minor) then south...More

People say the roads are bad and my god they are crazy! Although I don't think the weather helped as it was raining! As it was raining we didn't walk very far but the views were good, hope to return to do a walk on...More

Worth a stop and the hour hike up and around. Easy to accomplish and the views at the top are stunning

It's a bit of a scary drive to the bay but once there the views are amazing. Definitely worth it. If you're a game of thrones fan, well worth visiting. Would be a great spot for a picnic

Murlough Bay and Fair Head are beautiful sea/landscapes but beware, this is Northern Ireland and monstrous fog lurks in this region. Plan your visit here on a clear day. Driving conditions, in particular, become tenuous traveling anywhere in fog between Fair Head and Torr Head....More

I took the coastal drive near Fair Head and Murlough Bay, which had stupendous views. Sometimes the heights were a little scary, but the views were worth it.

One of the most beautiful places in the world regardless of the weather. A must visit. Drive to murlough wouldn't suit nervous drivers.

I did not expect this at all. I parked up in farmer's yard and felt slightly irritated by the fact he/she was asking £2 to park there. I did not regret my decision in the slightest. There are a number of routes you can take...More

This is one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. It is a hidden gem and unspoiled. Am nearly too scared to review it in case others discover it!!

There's a parking area at the bottom of the circular loop that is the Fair Head loop trail. From there it's a climb up to the plateau top and then across the field. It can be boggy and its full of grazing sheep. The views... More
