Northern Ireland's Causeway Coast is a truly magical place to visit, and there's no better time to experience its natural beauty than in the spring. With the weather starting to warm up and before the crowds start to build, it's the perfect time to explore everything this stunning coastline has to offer. In this blog post, we'll be taking a look at five fantastic things to do on the Causeway Coast this spring.
Beyond the Bridge
The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge is one of Northern Ireland's most iconic landmarks, but there's so much more to this area than just the bridge itself. Take an exclusive tour which not only lets you cross the bridge but also visit the fisherman's cottage and learn about the bygone salmon fishing industry of the Causeway Coast. This is a truly unique experience that will give you a deeper understanding of the history and culture of this fascinating area.
Adventure in Portrush
If you're an outdoors enthusiast, you won't want to miss the chance to explore the coast on a different level – on electric bikes, in a kayak, or on a surfboard. There are plenty of adventure sports companies in Portrush that offer a range of experiences for those who love the great outdoors. Whether you're an adrenaline junkie or just looking for a fun day out, you're sure to find something to suit you.
The Spirit of the Bann
One of the great joys of visiting Northern Ireland is sampling the local food and drink, and what better way to do that than with a unique river whiskey tasting experience? Cruise along on a river boat and learn (and taste!) about Bushmills whiskey, which is famous the world over for its smooth taste and unique character. This is a great way to relax and unwind while taking in the stunning scenery of the Causeway Coast.
The Library built on a cliff edge
The Downhill Demesne is a beautiful estate on the Causeway Coast that is home to the stunning Mussenden Temple. This library was built on a cliff edge and offers some of the most spectacular views you'll ever see. Take some time to wander around the estate and marvel at the breathtaking views, which are particularly stunning in the spring when the flowers are in bloom.
Explore tranquil Rathlin Island
For a truly unique experience, take the short boat ride from coastal Ballycastle and explore the myths and legends of Rathlin Island. This six-mile-long, one-mile-wide rugged island is also renowned for its diverse array of seabirds and wildlife, making it a perfect spot for nature lovers. Take a walk along the coastline, breathe in the fresh sea air, and soak up the tranquility of this stunning location.
