Out and about in Portrush

Portrush is a peninsula, stretching out into the Atlantic and ending at Ramore Head. This headland has a scenic walk along the cliff edge from where a panoramic view of the coast is afforded.

To the Northeast, Scotland with the Isles of Islay and Jura, is clearly visible on a good day. To the west, beyond Portstewart, the Inishowen peninsula with Malin head can be seen most days. To the east, Portrush is sheltered by the Skerrie Islands, beyond which Rathlin Island and sometimes the Mull of Kintyre are visible. Also to the east of Portrush, the East Strand which starts at the base of the peninsula stretches to the White Rocks, an amazing collection of cliffs and caves formed from limestone. A short distance beyond the White Rocks is Dunluce Castle, precariously perched right on a basalt clifftop. In 1639 the majority of the kitchen fell into the sea along with the kitchen staff during a banquet on a stormy night.

The next town is Bushmills, home to the oldest licensed distillery in the world. Tours are run every day. www.bushmills.com

Also from Bushmills is a genuine narrow guage steam train offering return trips to the Giants Causeway.

The Giants Causeway is Irelands most popular visitor attraction! It is recognised as a World Heritage Site. With over 40000 Basalt colums and unique rock formations, it is well worth a visit.

Beyond the Causeway, better reached by road, is the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. This bridge is suspended between the mainland and a small island, with 100' drop visible as you cross!
