So glad we decided to stop here on our way from Belfast to Portrush. Yes, I know we missed coast road, but this was stunningly beautiful! We visited March 8, 2015 and the trees were bare. Lovely place to see.

A fantastic natural site to visit. Planted by the Stuart family in the 1700s, they definately have a mysterious / supernatural feel, especially around sunset. The area is reputedly haunted by a spectral ‘Grey Lady’ who appears at dusk among the trees. She silently glides along the roadside and disappears as she passes the last beech tree. If going to...

30mph wind and rain coming down sideways which was perfect for a mid march viewing. Took a bit to find, but we weren't in a hurry anyway. Beautiful setting, glad we waited for bad weather to make the pictures come out that much better.

What a wonderful sight these old beech trees are, well worth a visit if you haven't been. Just follow the sign for the golf club just outside Armoy village and you will find them. I must say I was amazed when I first seen them, photos do not do them justice and there is a spooky feel even though this... More

This is certainly worth going to see. It is much better in real life than in photos. We went during the day, but it is probably better at dusk - just to get the right effect.

The dark hedges is something everyone needs to see with their own eyes, the photos don't do justice to it! It's absolutely stunning, I couldn't stop looking around me and I really didn't want to leave. Definitely worth the drive!!

Terribly signposted i.e. not at all, and full of tourists even on a March day, but well worth the visit nevertheless. The view is serene and a bit surreal. I would choose to visit early in the morning to catch good light to photograph it, ideally when is just getting light and there has been mist or fog. A local... More

A very nice lady at the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre recommended that we visit the Dark Hedges. It was well worth it, the trees are exceptional.

The Dark Hedges are a lovely stretch of tree lined road. Our trip was in early spring and therefore the tree's were bare; it would be nice to see it in the summer and/or early autumn.
