Giant's Causeway

Planning a visit to the Giant's Causeway soon? Why not book online in advance to save time (and money). Flanked between the wild North Atlantic Ocean and a landscape of dramatic cliffs, for centuries the Giant's Causeway has inspired artists, stirred scientific debate and captured the imagination of all who see it. Made up of an undulating network of approximately 40,000 basalt columns projecting into the ocean, the Giant's Causeway forms several miles of Northern Ireland's Causeway Coastal route. Cracked perfectly like ice on a frozen lake, inquiring minds have marvelled at the regularity of the stones' shape and the vastness of their number. Science, of course, holds the answers to most of these questions but in the days before scientists there were storytellers.

Limavady Castle

Limavady Castle (Léim an Mhadaidh), also known as O'Cahans Castle, is a ruined castle in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. It was once a stronghold of the O'Cahans. In 1542, the MacQuillans, accompanied by James Butler, 9th Earl of Ormond, the Lord High Treasurer of Ireland and a large body of English, besieged and took the castle, slaughtering the whole garrison.

Dungiven Castle

Dungiven Castle was the ancestral home of the O'Cahan clan who ruled the area between the 12th and 17th Century. Danny Boy, one of the most recorded melodies ever composed was originally called O'Cahan's Lament. The original version begins with an O'Cahan bard Rory Dall O'Cahan lamenting the passing of his great Chief, Cooey na Gall O'Cahan whose death brought to an end the line of O'Cahan chiefs of Ulster. He is buried in the Old Priory just a few minutes walk from Dungiven Castle.

Bushmills Distillery

The Bushmills distillery has had its fair share of visitors these past few hundred years, now over 120,000 each year (and that's not counting our resident ghost, The Grey Lady). And of all the living souls I have encountered, every one of them leaves with a smile on their face and a spring in their step, mind you, that might just be from the fumes as we hand craft our Bushmills.
