Holiday Highlights

  • Explore the impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site of Giants Causeway, a unique geological marvel set along the coast
  • Follow a dramatic Irish coastal route between the picturesque towns of Portstewart and Portrush
  • Discover tranquil walks along the unspoilt coast of the idyllic Rathlin Island
  • Enjoy a tour and tasting at Bushmills Distillery
  • Explore the incredible grounds of the Glenveagh house and gardens
  • Walk within the unique and truly beautiful Ards Forest Park

The trail passes over rolling hills, through emerald woodland and between open meadows filled with sheep, to the rugged dramatic coastal cliffs. Our steps will be accompanied by bird song, the calling of the sheep and Atlantic waves lapping the white sandy shore below. One of the only places where you’ll find complete tranquillity and seclusion. Ireland is a land of history, mystery, and peace.

We stay in two centres’ during our holiday to explore as much as possible without long daily transfers. Our first centre is the small traditional fishing village of Portballintrae located close to Bushmillls and just south of Giants Causeway. You’ll step back in time and enjoy a retreat in the little sea side resort with its half moon beaches and less than 1000 residents. We stay in the modern four-star Bayview Hotel with incredible panoramic ocean views.

Our second centre is the beautiful golden beach village of Marble Hill, close to Dunfanaghy. This haven is popular with lovers of bird watching, water sports and nature. We stay at the four-star elegant Shandon Hotel and Spa with unspoilt scenic coastal views.

Our holiday has a perfect blend of sites, history and coastal walking. We’ll explore the impressive Giants Causeway and follow a route along the dramatic coast between the 'red sails in the sunset' town of Portstewart and the bustling seaside resort of Portrush. We’ll take a boat across to the unspoilt Rathlin Island and walk within the unique and truly beautiful Ards Forest Park. We’ll slow the pace with an enjoyable tour and tasting at the 400 year old Bushmills Distillery. Come and explore the romantic landscapes of Ireland with us.
