Sightseeing

Located just over 20 minutes away by car, the Giant’s Causeway is the very definition of beauty! Made up of 40,000 black basalt stone columns, the Giant’s Causeway attracts almost a million visitors every year who come to see this natural wonder. We are so lucky to be near one of the greatest sights the world has to offer, and we even have some of the Causeway stones within Limepark’s gardens! Our Top Tip: Start you walk around the Causeway from the archway just off the carpark and further along the path take the steps down to the stones. You get the same breathtaking views but the walk is much easier.

Only 5 minutes away from Limepark. While the eagle-eyed among you may have noticed this as a location in Game of Thrones, make no mistake, there’s no doors to be held here! An atmospheric avenue of trees between Armoy and Stranocum, the Dark Hedges was created after James Stuart built a house around 1775, where over 150 beech trees were planted along the entrance road. Our Top Tip: Go as early as you can in the morning. There is limited parking and it gets very busy with tour buses from 10am onwards.

A short 20-minute drive away, this bridge links to the island of Carrick A Rede and is one of the big tourist attractions in the local area. It was believed that fishermen have been building bridges to the island for over 300 years. While fishermen do not use it as much these days, this rope bridge is the perfect opportunity to marvel at the northern coast of Ireland. Not only can you see nearby Rathlin Island, but on a clear day, you can see as far as Scotland! But if you look closer, underneath the bridge are large caves that were home for boat builders and used as shelter during adverse weather conditions.
