Ireland’s Causeway Coast

In last week’s post I shared with you some photos from my trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland, the highlight of which was the Causeway Coast. Here are some more photos from this stunning, mystical region.

Home base was the lovely seaside town of Portrush.

For the golf fans in the crowd, Portrush is home to the Royal Portrush Golf Club. My visit to the area that year overlapped with the British Senior’s Open tournament.

The first major attraction along the coastal route is Dunluce Castle.

Next is the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. I’m scared of heights, so it was a challenge for me to cross this short distance. Although safe, it does not evoke a great deal of confidence with small wood planks through which you can see the rocks and ocean below! However, those who brave the crossing are rewarded. The small island the bridge leads to is the perfect place to curl up with a book, meditate, or enjoy a picnic lunch. It is extremely serene and peaceful. Oh, and did I mention the views?!!

The mysterious part of this region is largely thanks to the often-changing weather. In a single day, you may experience sun, rain, and fog several times over – and not necessarily in that order!

And then there are quiet areas along the coast that do not boast any other attraction but the stunning views. And that’s enough!

I’ve been very fortunate to have done a bit of traveling. To this day, the Causeway Coast is still one of my favourite spots I have ever had the pleasure of seeing.
