Day 2:  Carrick a Rede /  Giant’s Causeway   

Spanning a chasm eighty feet deep is the famous Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, its construction once consisted of a single rope hand rail and widely spaced slats which the fishermen would traverse across with boxes of salmon caught off the island. This was one of several  seasonal salmon netting locations around the coast, others were at Kenbane, Portmoon and Black Rock. On the main road above Carrick a Rede you will see the old Ice House on the right hand side of the road as you climb up the hill, this is where ice gathered in winter would be stred to pack with the fish before it was shipped to Belfast.

Flanked by the wild North Atlantic Ocean on one side and a landscape of dramatic cliffs on the other, for centuries the Giant’s Causeway has inspired artists, stirred scientific debate and captured the imagination of all who see it.

Experience the Giant’s Causeway for yourself. Visit the world-famous basalt columns with one of our knowledgeable tour guides or pick up an audio guide and go at your own pace. Climb the Shepherd’s Steps and take a hike along the cliff-top trail for bird’s eye views of the causeway coastline – famed world-wide for its beauty.BELF6

Bushmills the village is best known as the location of the Old Bushmills Distillery, founded in 1608, which is the oldest licensed distillery in the world. The distillery’s range includes the Bushmills Original and Black Bush blends and the 10, 12, 16, and 21 year old Bushmills Single Malts. To celebrate the 400th anniversary, the Distillery released a unique whiskey called the “1608” which included crystal malt. The Distillery draws its water, not from the River Bush itself but from a tributary known as Saint Columbs Rill.

Boyne Valley, an area rich in heritage and history. Places to visit include Brú na Bóinne (Newgrange & Knowth), Hill of Slane, Hill of Tara, Monasterboice, Old Mellifont Abbey, Bective Abbey, Trim Castle, Loughcrew, Fourknocks, Kells, St Ciarán’s Holy Well and much more.

While reknowned at the seat of the high kings of Ireland, the importance of the Hill of Tara stretches back to the late Stone Age when a passage-tomb was constructed there. Significant site containing ancient monuments and the reputed seat of the High Kings of Ireland. The Hill was once the seat of power in Ireland with over 140 kings said to have reigned over the country until the 6th century and to a lesser extent until the 12th century.

Monasterboice (Mainistir Bhuithe) is an interesting monastic site near Drogheda in County Louth. The impressive ruins include a large cemetery, two churches, one of the tallest round towers in Ireland and two of the tallest and best high crosses.
