Attractions

Every destination has its ‘must see and do’ visitor attractions and the Causeway Coast is no different. Within easy reach of The Inn on the Coast at Portrush there are a host of attractions that fall into the category.

It’s most unlikely that any visitor would manage to get around them all on a single first trip, but it does give you a great excuse for coming back again and again

Amongst those attractions you’ll find some of Ireland's most iconic and most photographed spots, drawing visitors from across the world. 

The most famous amongst them is the amazing Giant’s Causeway.

The Giant's Causeway

Just a few miles east of Portrush is the world renowned Giant's Causeway. The Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. Visitor facilities for The Giant's Causeway include a shop providing refreshments and souvenirs. Guided tours of the Causeway can be arranged for groups of more than 15 people, and there is access for visitors with disabilities. The area is suitable for picnics, cliff and country walks. Dogs are welcome on leads. 

Bushmills  Distillery

Even closer to the Inn than the Giant's Causeway is Bushmills Distillery, where Bushmills Irish Whiskey is made at Ireland’s oldest working distillery. Watch whiskey making take place, and enjoy a wee taster too, as the secrets of 400 years of distilling at the home of Irish whiskey is unlocked.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

Situtated at the village of Ballintoy near Ballycastle, the Carrick-a-Rede boasts unrivalled coastal scenery and an exhilarating rope bridge experience accessed by a short coastal footpath, consisting of wonderful vantage points to stop and take in the natural beauty.

Dunluce Castle

Dunluce Castle is located dramatically close to a headland that plunges straight into the sea, along the North Antrim coast near the town of Bushmills. There is archaeological evidence of a village that surrounded the castle which was destroyed by fire in 1641. The site was also witness to the sinking of a colony ship that broke up on the rocks off Islay in 1857 with the loss of 240 lives.

Whatever you are looking for from your trip to the Causeway Coast and glens, The Inn on the Coast offers a perfect base from which to explore all of the attractions on offer.
