Northern Ireland Roadtrip

One thing I love about Ireland is the beautiful landscape and scenery no matter what direction you drive.  This time I pointed my car towards the North to take in the wonders of the Six Counties.

First stop was Carnlough, Co. Antrim.  The birthplace of Brendan Rodgers, current Liverpool FC manager.

Ballycastle, Co. Antrim was next port of call (pardon the pun). The eye catching sculpture of Children of Lir catching the sun beautifully.

Next stop is the miniature little harbour of Ballintoy.  This picturesque harbour has been used in the filming of Game of Thrones.  Its well hidden and off the beaten track and definitely worth a peek.   I’m not sure what the story is with the little metal tags on the wooden posts but they caught the attention of the romantic in me!

Of course I was really looking forward to going to the Giants Causeway and had great hopes of getting some nice pics but I it was so crowded it was impossible.    However here are a few more pictures from various locations around the North of our fantastic little country!



Thanks for stopping by, hope you visit again soon!
