Arrive in the lovely village of Ballycastle on the Northern Coast.

Access to Ballycastle is via a bus service from either Ballymena or Coleraine.

This hike takes you around the magnificent coastal route of Murlough and Fair Head. The path hugs the coast with dramatic cliff drops. If it is a misty day with poor visibility there are several looped walks from the car park at Fair Head Farm that can be enjoyed instead. Transfer back to Ballycastle for your overnight.

Walk Details: Distance: 8kms. Gravel tracks, with some road walking, with some sections that can be rocky & uneven. Can be wet underfoot – boots essential.

“Before you lies one of the finest walks that an ordinary pedestrian can experience anywhere in the wide world” – Ulster Rambles by Peter Wright
The best coastal walk in Ireland. Varied geology, views across to Scotland, cliff and beach walks, the Giant’s Causeway and Ireland’s smallest church are all to be found on today’s route.
Beginning at Larrybane visitor centre and the world-famous Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. The bridge spans an 80-foot-deep chasm that renders Carrick-a-Rede island, a must do for every visitor and gives a fitting beginning to an exhilarating day’s walk. From here it is only a short distance by the coastal path to the little village of Ballintoy. The little harbour at the foot of the cliffs is well worth a visit.
From Ballintoy harbour you very soon come to the beautiful strand of White Park Bay, then on to Portbraddan, with Ireland’s tiniest church measuring only 12ft by 6.5ft. Continuing on you come to the ruins of Dunseverick Castle and then along the cliff-top path round Benbane Head and on to the Giant’s Causeway. From here you will be transferred back to Ballycastle to collect your luggage and depart.
Walk Details: Distance: 18 kms. Max. Height: 120m. Grass tracks, beaches and road walking. Boots recommended

You can visit Rathlin Island instead of either of the above hikes instead (weather dependent) It is Northern Ireland’s only inhabited offshore island and home to a spectacular array of wildlife located five miles north of Ballycastle on the North Antrim Coast. With the re-opening of the RSPB Seabird Centre and first time access to the Rathlin West Lighthouse, it’s a unique visitor experience not to be missed.
