NORTHERN IRELAND’S MOST SPECTACULAR COUNTY
(P1) Of the six counties found in Northern Ireland, County Antrim is perhaps the most famous. It’s home to Northern Ireland’s capital, Belfast, as well as one of the country’s greatest coastal attractions: Giant’s Causeway, a MASSIVE surface that resulted from a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago.
(P2) But there’s more to this RUGGED region. With more than 200km of coastline, Northern Ireland’s is a STRIKINGVISTA of blue and green, full of MEDIEVAL castles, RICKETY bridges, and colourful GLENS to explore.
(P3) Located just outside the small village of Portballintrae, Dunluce Castle is one of the oldest RUINS in County Antrim. Records show that the castle was built in 1500 by the McQuillans, a ruling family originally from southwest Scotland. They first arrived in Northern Ireland in the 1200s as hired MERCENARIES.
