Ulster folk Museum 

Get your tickets booked and talk a walk along the cute cobbled streets, order some old fashioned sweets and stroll along the old time roads. I can’t think of anywhere with more character and lots of cute doors!

Ballintoy Harbour Walk & Beach

I love this place as it is full of nature, you can feel the sea breeze and get amazing sunset images through the cave hole in the rock. There is so much scope if you want to be adventurous and explore the landscape or get more of those cute harbour images walking alongside the boats and on the sandy beach. It’s quiet on weekday evenings which is the winning ticket if you love privacy, and let’s face it we all do.

This little gem with soft sand, white rocks and amazing views is the most romantic spot ever! Kick your shoes off or stroll along the stunning coastline at sunrise or sunset.

Dunluce Castle

The field opposite Dunluce is one of the top locations for vow renewals in the Uk & Europe, and why is that? Well you have the whole place to yourself, an awesome view of the coastline, which really is breathtakingly stunning, the ancient castle ruins in the background and blue ocean on the other side against the white cliffs. Plus the sunsets are pretty amazing!
