Visit Antrim in Ireland

One of the countries that I have always found the most beautiful is Ireland , which I have not visited yet but from a distance I see it very attractive, especially thanks to the large number and variety of natural landscapes that you can find there. A country in which there is a lot of Nature , medieval environments and cities with a lot of charm that I am sure that anyone who visits them will fall in love with.

One of the cities that attracts me the most is Antrim , a coastal city that is in the northwest of the country and only 35 kilometers from Belfast, so it is worth taking a little jump to visit it. There you will discover, mainly, a great coastal landscape that mixes, and contrasts, with the valleys and mountains that preside over the city. In Antrim you will find the most famous attraction in Northern Ireland, the so-called Giant’s Causeway , a spectacular geological phenomenon that was created thanks to a volcanic eruption millions of years ago.

Another place of interest in Antrim is the White Park Bay , an impressive park in which there is a beach, cliffs, dunes and a nature trail to walk while enjoying a unique landscape. If you are not afraid of heights you should visit the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Suspension Bridge, which is along the Larrybane cliffs and is 80 meters long and 60 meters high.

Dunseverick Castle also stands out, one of the first castles to be built in the country, which through a path joins the Giant’s Causeway. The castle has a museum in which there are various exhibits, such as marine artifacts, the Spanish navy and several of fossils and minerals.

Also worth visiting is Ballycastle , which is at the foot of Knocklayd Mountain and has a sandy beach that is popular with locals and tourists alike. Finally, in Antrim many festivals are held mainly during the month of July, the most famous being those of Irish dance and music.
