Good hike today. Started at the harbour and walked along coast over the Stiles. Had to lift my dog though as he is a little fat. So able bodied dogs is a must. 😋 Ended up along the beach and made way past the small...More

There is a reason why location scouts pick destinations like Ballintoy Harbour. It is wild, beautiful and isolated - especially when winter keeps the tourist numbers low. We had enjoyed a long but breathtaking coastal drive from Dungaloe and were ready to take a break...More

We stopped to view a filming location for GOT and was treated to a lovely little harbor and clean public restrooms.

Beautiful harbour and well worth doing instead of paying for the nearby ripoff rope bridge . Our family had such fun playing on the rocks

We originally weren't going to stop here as we were coming into the area to see Giant's Causeway and thought it might be too crowded or difficult to get to. We also thought, since only a couple small scenes from GoT's had been filmed here,...More

No tour taken - not needed if you do any research. Spend as long - or as little - a time as you want. Walking and looking and relaxing are difficult to quantify. I can imagine some spending 5 minutes, taking photo and... More
