the pub is the best thing in Cushendun, fantastic atmosphere in the front bar in particular, a genuine Irish pub, with great Guiness.

Some areas roped off as "Fillums" were being made,,,, loved the Goat statue and the live white goat tethered next to it, didn't it love all the fuss being made? Watched the heather on the far hills being burned off ( at least we hope that was what w as happening...) A beautiful bay, nicely kept and nurtured...

Cushendun village is a National Trust property and has lovely cottages designed for the former Lord Cushendun by the architect Clough Williams Ellis who also designed Port Merrion in Wales. The houses in the village were made in the style of Cornish fishing cottages because Lady Cushendun was from there. The Maud Cottages along the sea frint were also named after her.
The currently vacant Glenmona House was originally Lord Cushendun's residence.
The village has a small restaurant/tea room and a grocery shop. It also boasts the "smallest pub in Ireland", Mary McBride's which has recently been refurbished to provide a small upstairs restaurant. They also do pub grub downstairs. You may be able to sample some of the locally caught wild salmon!

It has a lovely safe and clean beach backed by a grassy warren, in a scenic bay. A children's playground sits next to the beach car park. There is a council-run caravan and camping site with all amenities and a sports field where you can watch the Irish game of hurling.
On the South side of the village, the Dun river has a free harbour and there is another bar and a new development of riverside apartments. Behind these, the Cushendun coastal caves are spectacularly cut out of the conglomerate sandstone and a road runs through one of them to the secluded Cave House.
We stayed in a self-catering rented house beside the beach and had a great holiday! Peace, quiet, beautiful scenery and somewhere for the children to play - what more could you want?
