Sep 1, 2015 - Giant Causeway, Bushmills, Dunlace Castle

September 1-Giant’s Causeway, Bushmills, and Carrick-a-Rede We don’t go far today because we are touring the sights in this area and spending the night in Portrush again. We have many interesting sights to see, mostly involving natural structures with some manmade stuff thrown in. We started at the Giant’s Causeway. This is a strange set of rocks that legend says was laid down by Finn McCool the Irish Giant. It is said that Finn wanted to go over to Scotland, so he threw rocks into the ocean until he created a causeway that he could use to...

Sep 6, 2014 - Causeway Coast, Northern Ireland

Our destination after Belfast was Londonderry located in northwestern Northern Ireland. Rather than drive directly there, we took the scenic northern Causeway Coast, another “must” when visiting Northern Ireland. Photo 1 GIANT’S CAUSEWAY The uniqueness of this geological formation of more than 37,000 basalt columns with a nearly consistent regularity of five to six sides has made this the most popular tourist attraction in Northern Ireland. Photos 2-4 There is a visitor’s center with shuttles and a walking path to the site. Next to the...

Ireland 2014

Oct 25, 2012 - Bushmills, Northern Ireland

Yesterday we drove through Enniskillen to Omagh, and then through some very scenic country with the Sperrin Mountains in the distance and following a river much of the way to Strabane.

We then followed the coast road to Limavady and on to Coleraine, then back around the coast to Bushmills where we found the Ballyness Caravan Park (BT57 8TN) by mid-afternoon. We had a relaxing afternoon and...

Jul 29, 2012 - Day 4 & 5 - Ballycastle to The Giant's Causeway

I'm sitting in a beautiful little veranda overlooking the ocean as I write my blog today. We just arrived at our B&B for the evening. It's so peaceful and calm here in Bushmills, Northern Ireland. Yesterday we walked through our last forest (!) from Ballycastle to Ballintoy which was 15.7km. Helen and I both fell in love with the town of Ballycastle. It's right on the sea with some great little shops. I think the owner of a local jewelery store fell in love with us as between the 2 of us we bought 8 pieces of jewelery. What can I say? It...

Apr 23, 2012 - Northern Ireland - Causeway Costal Route

17th April 2012 (Bed No 18) Today we had planned a long trip along the Causeway coastal route, which is considered one of the world’s great road journeys. We travelled for two hours to Londonderry where our journey began. To see everything along the Causeway coastal route would take days, as time did not permit, we chose 5 points of interest. Our first stop was the small town of Castlerock, where in the distance we could see the Mussenden Temple. It looked like a great photo opportunity, so we parked the car, walked a few meters and took...
