County Antrim, Northern Ireland // Summer 2018

Scroll down to content

The second part of our trip we stayed in Cushendun, and drove along the Coastal Causeway Route, where we saw the Carrickfergus Castle (built in 1170!), Carnlough Harbor, and hiked the Glenariff trail in the Glens of Antrim/Glenariff to some gorgeous waterfalls!. To our surprise, our airbnb ended up being in the backyard of a Game of Thrones filming location, as the Cushendun caves are right behind our flat where scenes from season 8 are being filmed. Unfortunately due to security, we couldn’t snoop around too much. Wish I was a bigger fan of the show, because it has certainly made Northern Ireland famous. Of course, there were still endless views from the Coastal Causeway drive that stole our hearts!
