It's a bit of a scary drive to the bay but once there the views are amazing. Definitely worth it. If you're a game of thrones fan, well worth visiting. Would be a great spot for a picnic

Murlough Bay and Fair Head are beautiful sea/landscapes but beware, this is Northern Ireland and monstrous fog lurks in this region. Plan your visit here on a clear day. Driving conditions, in particular, become tenuous traveling anywhere in fog between Fair Head and Torr Head....More

I took the coastal drive near Fair Head and Murlough Bay, which had stupendous views. Sometimes the heights were a little scary, but the views were worth it.

One of the most beautiful places in the world regardless of the weather. A must visit. Drive to murlough wouldn't suit nervous drivers.

I did not expect this at all. I parked up in farmer's yard and felt slightly irritated by the fact he/she was asking £2 to park there. I did not regret my decision in the slightest. There are a number of routes you can take...More

This is one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. It is a hidden gem and unspoiled. Am nearly too scared to review it in case others discover it!!

Fabulous views, peaceful and atmospheric. A very twisty, narrow and steep road down to the bay which is not for the faint hearted. I really don't want lots of people to visit because, as a local, I want to keep it to ourselves!

New walk listed in Walkni.com. Well worth the effort. We did the blue walk around the cliff tops. Stunning views of coastline , Rathlin and Scotland. So beautiful . The walk is over rough ground ( not footpaths ) but well signed. Waterproof boots or...More

I take all our visitors here. The scenery is breathtaking. GOT has filmed here as well. When you reach the bottom of the hill, it's very steep, park and walk. On reaching the shore turn right and follow the track past the cottages and keep...More

This is a beautiful scenic bay with stunning views, not for the faint hearted as the steep narrow drive down & back can be quite scary if you meet someone coming in the opposite direction.But well worth it for the views out to Fair Head...More

Hi, if your vehicle is really big park there's space where you could park on the left right at the top, it's just a rough patch of ground not an official car park. There's also a small car park a bit further down and I've... More
