You can venture far and wide, but you’ll have trouble finding a place so steeped in natural wonder as County Antrim. It’s not just one of the most beautiful parts of Northern Ireland, but quite possibly on Earth. From Ballycastle to Portrush, the isolated and rugged landscape of the Antrim coastline is widely regarded as an amazingly scenic drive. The Giant's Causeway, a 60 million-year-old rock formation consisting of 40,000 basalt columns, is a geological phenomenon and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Steeped in magic and mystery, the iconic Dark Hedges of County Antrim is an old avenue of beech trees that line the Bregagh Road near the village of Armoy have been used as a filming location in HBO’s epic series Game of Thrones.
