Contents

Understand

The Glens of Antrim offer isolated rugged landscapes, the Giant's Causeway is one of the most striking landscapes on Earth and is a UNESCO World Heritage site, Bushmillls produces legendary whiskey, and Portrush is where Northern Ireland goes to party. It is one of Ireland's most fascinating counties.

Cities

Other destinations

Get in

Belfast International Airport is situated near the town of Antrim, and is convenient for exploring the region. Ferries from Scotland land at Larne.

Get around

Translink operates the public transport system in Antrim.

Eat

Standard Northern Irish fare, but if you're lucky enough to catch the Oul Lammas Fair in Ballycastle, be sure to try Yellow Man, a rock hard yellow sweet that is eaten with the aid of a hammer. Make sure your dental insurance is up to date first.

Drink

Bushmills Distillery, of course. You can take distillery tours, and you'll likely be more merry going out than when you went in. It's worth noting that at the end of each tour four people from the tour group (two women and two men) are asked to volunteer for a special whiskey tasting, where participants get to try nine different types of whiskey.

Stay safe

Stay sensible, don't wander around urban areas at night or make political statements in strange company, and you'll be just fine.
