During our stay on the North Coast in April, we saw an advertisement for Damhead Railway. This attraction is only open on certain days throughout the year, and having never been before I thought my two boys would enjoy it.
One day last week, the kids and I rather spontaneously decided to pack up a picnic and head to Belfast Zoo.
Having been before, I knew to be prepared. The location of the site is on very steep ground, so sensible shoes are a must. I knew Aaron would need his buggy, and I knew to take drinks and snacks for the boys. Trust me – you don’t want to be running back to the shop to buy water when you are half way round the attractions.
If you are from Northern Ireland it is highly unlikely that you have not heard of Kelly’s at Portrush. However there is a chance you may not know about their newest Bar and Bistro, The DeerStalker!
Annually, in July, Glenarm Castle hosts the Dalriada Festival. A showcase of sporting events, music and fine foods, with influences from Scotland and Ireland.
This was our first year attending the Dalriada Festival, and with the sun shining we headed off to the coastal location. Regardless of whether you travel via coast or through the Antrim Glens, the views are stunning. As you turn into Glenarm Castle grounds, the sight of the Castle nestling in the valley, with the sea in the near distance, provides the perfect setting for such an event.
