Find the perfect County Antrim holiday accommodation to suit you
Containing rugged coastal landscapes, local whiskey produced in Bushmills and the seaside resort of Portrush, you won't run out of things to do while in the area. Experience the world-famous natural wonder of the Giants Causeway and drive along the coastal route to discover why County Antrim is so popular – this route passes by each of the nine famous “glens” (valleys). To stay along the renowned route, search for holiday cottages in Cushendall or Bushmills. The coastal journey also offers man-made wonders. For example, the historic monuments within County Antrim include mounts, castles and forts – it could be worth a visit to Carrickfergus Castle, less than a half an hours drive north of Belfast and one of the most well-preserved medieval constructions in Ireland. In addition, the medieval Dunlance castle lies just outside Portrush, a small seaside town located on a mile-long peninsula offering ocean views and opportunities to brave the Atlantic on a surf board or windsurf. There are plenty of places along the coast and amongst the surrounding towns to hike and cycle through the mountainous landscape. County Antrim also offers shopping and cinema complexes, restaurants and bars to ensure everyone is entertained.
