                  The White Rocks Portrush and the Bush river that feeds the famous Busmills Irish Whisky Distillery. Great resturants and traditional pub fare helps to replace the calories lost on the beautiful coast walks. The National Trust has protected many miles of beautiful walks along beaches that join cliff tops to headlands from where you can watch the flow and ebb of the great tides that sweep in an out of the Irish sea from the North Atlantic. Fishing is rich as is the sea bird life on Rathlin, reached by regular daily ferry crossings or with fast RIBs that offer tours of the area. Some of Ireland's most famous golf clubs such as The Royal Portrush are only a few minutes away from your base in Ballintoy. To the south the majestic 7 Glens of Antrim are only half an hour away.

                  Other Activities: coastal sea trips, nature trails.

                  Golf: Ballintoy is located between the world renowned Royal Portrush and Ballycastle Golf Club. The beautiful Bushfoot Golf Club is a few minutes drive. All three clubs boast North Atlantic beach fronts. There are some 7 Golf Clubs in the area.
