County Antrim, named after the town of Antrim, is located in the north-east of Northern Ireland. One of the County Antrim’s most famous attributes is the Giant’s Causeway, a distinctive, rugged coastline formed with basalt columns and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Glens of Antrim is another popular attraction, as is the Old Bushmills Distillery in the village of Bushmills, which claims to be the oldest licensed distillery in the world, and the seaside resort of Portrush. The majority of Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, is also located within the county (the remainder is located in County Down).
In addition to tourist attractions, there are plenty of dining destinations to choose from, from fish and chips to fine dining and beyond; Morton’s Fish & Chip Shop (Ballycastle), the Del Toro steakhouse and urban grill (Portrush) and the Bushmills Inn (Bushmills) are just a small selection. Throughout the year, there are also find some fantastic food and drink events going on – the Irish Game Fare & Fine Food Festival at Shanes Castle and the Dalriada Festival in Ballymena are not to be missed.
