Exploring the enchanting landscapes of Glens of Antrim!
As promised, a little overdue but never too late! 2 months ago, I and a friend visited Northern Ireland and we spent one day in the captivating Glens of Antrim.
Glens of Antrim is a region of County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is known for its beautiful isolated landscapes and areas of natural beauty which are the major tourist attractions in the Norn Iron.
Our day started as we met with the tourist guide and headed aboard a coach. The travel was a bit long but it didn’t really matter as we were amazed by the view.
Our first stop was The Dark Hedges but sadly, we weren’t allowed to get off the bus as they said, there was filming happening in the location.
Next was the iconic ruin of the medieval Dunluce Castle, built on the dramatic coastal cliffs of North Antrim which bears quite a history.
Our third stop was the magnificent Giant’s Causeway. We needed to walk to reach the columns but while walking our way to it, I was already in awe of how beautiful the landscape is. It made me wonder how it was made. Truly, a beauty to treasure and remember!
We spent most of our time there and even had a quick lunch at the Causeway Hotel.
After lunch, the coach arrived to take us to the Carrick-A-Rege Rope Bridge. It is another National Trust that is truly beautiful. I was really scared when we crossed it, considering there was a mild hail rain and the wind was pretty strong, but I successfully braved crossing the bridge! It was one proud moment!
This was the way back to our coach. We had to walk the coast in order to reach the rope bridge and back to where the coach was parked. The view was also amazing.
Our last stop for the day was Cushendun and the Cushendun Cave. The Cushendun Cave was known for being one of the iconic locations of the popular TV hit series, The Game of Thrones.
Cushendun is a small coastal village. This seaside village is really lovely!
This whole day would totally be my favorite from our Northern Ireland trip. At the end of the day, the day felt so productive and I was just amazed by all the places we visited.
Be pretty, be happy, be you! ~H
