Northern Ireland

Everything is “wee” here!

We woke in the wee morning hours to visit The Dark Hedges, located close to our B&B. It was worth it, as we had the place to ourselves. The iconic trees of the Dark Hedge gained its popularity as a filming location in Game of Thrones. We visited the site for the photographic beauty. Then it was back to the B&B for a shower and a hearty Irish breakfast.

Fully fueled we set off on our drive to the Giant’s Causeway. The Giant's Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic fissure eruption 60 million years ago. We enjoyed great scenery and views on our 6k hike above and through the causeway. The rocks themselves are wonderful and a natural wonder,

From there we headed to the wee craggy Irish ruins of Dunluce Castle. It was enjoyable wandering through this piece of Irish history.

We had a wee bit of lunch in the town of Bushmills which is famous for its Irish Whiskey. We then enjoyed the Bushmills Distillery tour which ended with a wee dram of whiskey. Then we did a drive along the coast before returning to our B&B for the night.
