Staying Here

What's Nearby?

Flesk Water Camping is an ideal location from which to base yourself for exploring the Glens of Antrim and the Causeway Coast

Locally, there’s a very popular pub-restaurant called the Scenic Inn just a few hundred metres along the quiet country road – we enjoy eating there and think you will too.

If you’re after a hearty cooked breakfast, the Woven Mill coffee shop & garden centre, is within a few minutes’ walking distance and serves food throughout the daytime.

The Golden Plough, our local shop & filling station, stays open until 9.30pm each evening and can provide any essentials you need.

The Dark Hedges is just a couple of miles away—a short cycle ride or a moderate walk!  Planted nearly 250 years ago, this used to be a place that mainly drew artists and photographers wishing to capture the brooding beauty of the beech trees that line a stretch of the Bregagh Road.  That all changed after it was used as the filming location for Game of Thrones, making it a hugely popular draw for visitors wishing to see what they know as the King’s Road.

Other local attractions/activities within a few miles include Turnagrove Fishery, Gracehill Golf Club, Lissanoure Castle, Armoy Round Tower and Shean’s Horse Farm.  We are also close to the Moyle Way walking route, and Slieveanorra National Nature Reserve.  The Armoy Road Races take place at the end of July each year – less than three miles away, this is a must for fans of motorbike road racing!

Many key tourist destinations are within a very short drive, including:

  • the world-famous Giant’s Causeway – no further description needed!
  • the world-famous Bushmills Distillery.  Bushmills whiskey is made using water from the river Bush, and our wee river, the Flesk Water, flows into the Bush – so a dram of Bushmills really is a taste of home!
  • Ballycastle, a place with a strong food culture and a stronghold of traditional music in its many pubs and other venues.  Home of the Auld Lammas Fair and the departure point for visitors to Rathlin Island, as well as the island of Islay and Campbelltown on the Mull of Kintyre
  • the imposing sea cliffs of Fair Head, one of the best outdoor rock-climbing locations in Ireland and now a key filming location for popular tv series Game of Thrones®.  See also …
  • Murlough Bay – one of the hidden gems of this part of the world, the descent to the beach is one of the most dramatic and hair-raising on the entire island.
  • Torr Head, site of an early Christian settlement, the closest point to Scotland and filming location for viking epic The Northman
  • The picturesque village of Ballintoy, known for its harbour (another GoT filming location) and for …

  • Loughareema, the Vanishing Lake – a geological oddity which can be there in the morning and empty in the afternoon
