In BIG Pictures: Causeway Coast and Glens, Northern Ireland

NI4

We’ve just returned from a three day driving trip along the Causeway and the Glens, Northern Ireland with Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council. It’s easily the most iconic scenic stretch in Northern Ireland which encompasses the world famous Giants Causeway and several filming locations for the hit TV series Game of Thrones.

Flying into Belfast and staying at the Roe Park Resort we explored the Causeway Coastal Route (a 120-mile Causeway Coastal Route driving route from Belfast to Derry-Londonderry), tasted a warming whiskey at Bushmill’s Distillery, tackled the hair-raising Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge, strolled around the tranquil Roe Valley Country Park, saw the key filming locations for Game of Thrones and of course, scaled the epic Giants Causeway. A place carved and formed around 60 million years ago this is where myth, legends, a rich varied history and natural scenery – which literally took our breath away – rule. Here’s our Causeway and the Glens experience in BIG pictures….

With roots in Bavaria, a home in England and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 35 countries on trips and living in both Dublin and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations away from the crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not travelling, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, wandering the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting around for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world - Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
