Antrim & Newtownabbey
Just 20 minutes from Belfast lies Antrim (my home town!) and it is full of history, castle ruins, legends, magnificent castle gardens, & Game of Thrones filming locations. It is on the road between Belfast and Londonderry/Derry, or Belfast and the North Coast, and as well as being a historic hidden gem, there are also lots of restaurants, shops and The Junction outlet shopping centre, not forgetting The Gateway which opened in December 2019 on the shore of Lough Neagh.
Antrim is just one of the many towns within the council borough of Antrim & Newtownabbey which have their own stories, sights & attractions to share with visitors to the area. Follow this link to find out everything there is to discover on your next trip.
