Causeway Coasteering Northern Ireland
Published on: 04/11/23
We’re no shrinking violets at Let’s Go Out, but when the clocks changed and the days continue to get shorter and darker, we understand the urge to sit on the sofa and eat biscuits! But why get square-eyed watching when there’s brilliant winter warmers out there, just waiting for you?! When steady outdoor activities- like walking and wildlife watching- can get the extremities a little chilly, the solution is to max up the movement. Indeed, as the sea temperatures dip, getting tucked up in a top-spec wetsuit and taking it wild and wired can create some of the hottest adventures about!
This week, we’re heading for the tip of Northern Ireland. Set in the Binevenagh AONB, attractions include the Giants’ Causeway, the historic town and major Golf capital of Portrush, the oldest whiskey distillery in the world, and numerous Game of Thrones locations. the stunning Causeway Coastal Route is rated one of the best “slow drives” in the world, but it’s the wild and rocky blue-flag beach coastline, that we’re heading for, and a spot of winter-warmer coasteering.
