Are you escaping for a holiday, reconnecting with friends or simply passing through? However you find yourself in Mid and East Antrim, remember this: 

You are welcome.

Visitor Guide 2017

We invite you to run your hands over the centuries-old cold stone walls of Carrickfergus Castle, drive the famous Causeway Coastal Route, take in the same spectacular views as St Patrick from the top of Slemish Mountain or feel the seaspray on your face as you traverse the newly-restored walkways of The Gobbins Cliff Path. We are proud to be able to boast some of the best tourist attractions Northern Ireland has to offer. 

Feel free to explore. Learn about our heritage and feed on our rich culture and satisfying food. You will be surprised how much is packed into this corner of the world.
