Hidden Gems & Secret Places

on the Causeway Coast and Glens

Unearth our Secrets

You’ve heard of the Giant’s Causeway, right? But have you heard that the beautiful little village of Bushmills, just 2 miles North of the world famous rock formation, is home to a flurry of superb art galleries, craft stores, unique retailers and high end independent restaurants? And that you can stay in a wide range of beautiful properties, from The Bushmills Inn, to the Bushmills Hostel? There is so much more to this quaint village than you know, you just have to dive right in and explore.

This is just one example of there being so many more things to do and see, places to stay, secrets to discover and tastes to savour than first meets the eye with the Causeway Coast and Glens.

Hidden rock pools where you can indulge in a spot of private, wild swimming? Secret venues in which to hold the most beautiful and quirky of weddings? Artisan chocolate makers crafting the most mouth-melting  milk, gold and ruby chocolate? Cosy places to enjoy a quiet winter hot toddy by a turf fire after clambering rocks to secret coves? Yes please! We have all of these and so much more.
