The Glens of Antrim is a large area... head for Glenariffe, Waterfoot, Cushendall and Glendun area. Waterfalls, cliffs, oldest natural wood in Ireland, beautiful mountains, sea views and the best pubs and resturaunts in the north of Ireland.

Drove through and along several of the glens as I made my way along the Antrim Coastal route. So many beautiful villages (like Cushendun), towns, sheep, cattle, headlands, ocean views, and of course -- glens! Very picturesque and serene.

We had a difficult time locating this using our GPS but once we got to Waterfoot, we just followed the local signs. The views were all so beautiful. A nice drive on the coast for sure!

The nine Glens of Antrim run backwards from the sea into the Antrim Plateau. Starting at the most southerly glen, Glenarm, which is fronted by the pretty village of Glenarm, you proceed northwards to Glencloy at Carnlough. As you turn into Red Bay and pass...More
