Jun 12, 2018 - Day 19

Another spectacular drive today. We went from Coleraine to Larne - The Causeway Coast. We started off with an 8km walk from Dunseverick Castle to The Giants Causeway. A cliff top walk with spectacular views. We then drove for a few hours stopping for photos along the way. This area is known for filming in various locations for The Game of Thrones. Not ever having seen an episode (not my thing) it was kind of wasted on us :(

Aug 27, 2013 - Northern Ireland

Yesterday we left Stranraer and went off to Cairnryan to catch the ferry to Northern Ireland. It was a very smooth trip with very calm waters.

It took us through the different districts of Catholics and Protestants and explained the divide. There were British flags everywhere in some places and for some reason we did not see too many irish flags - i think the tour did not enter those districts too often. The murals were...

Aug 13, 2009 - Larne

Had a lovely breakfast which extended by another hour as we chatted with our hosts Dave and Mary Carr- a really nice couple and full of laughs. Eventually got away about 10am and travelled through the picturesque towns of Portrush and Portstown where we purchased a fantastic phot of the lifeboat leaving port through 45 feet waves on a rescue mission- it's a great shot. On around the coast to the Giants' causeway. It costs £6 to park the car then there are three options to take- a 3 km walk which goes along teh clifftop, down the Shepherds...

Sep 27, 2008 - Of Eccentrics and Giants

We went down for breakfast and realized that the house had a beautiful view over a small river and across Limavady to the distant hills. The sun was breaking through and we expected a good day ahead. We set off after discussing our plans with the landlady and headed along the coast where we noticed an odd structure on the cliff top. We stopped and found the remains of a massive Bishop’s Palace built by Frederick Augustus Hervey, Bishop of Bristol and Derry. The building we had seen is the Mussenden Temple, built by him in 1785 to...
