“Ballintoy harbour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

well worth a stop on the coastal causeway this pretty little bay is stunning with a well appointed cafe right at the harbour. the views are great with a lovely walk easy accessible from the car park. the coast here is almost as good as the causeway itself in my apinion

“Beautiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Tiny harbour - still in use - great views on a brilliantly sunny day. Terrific café on the quay, with tables on the sunny side. interesting church on the hill, and quirky house to spot as you come down into the harbour.

“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This little harbour with it's lovely little cafe and surroundings is just divine. Unspoilt, natural and beautiful. There is a real tranquility about the place and it is a joy to visit. Best of all it is free....ssshhhh!!!....yes free.....don't let some large organisations know about it or it will have a visitor centre and an extortionate price to see it slapped on it!!!

“Picturesque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Recommended to visit here by a gallery owner in Ballycastle. Wonderfully quiet and peaceful place, unspoilt like much of this coastline

“Well worth a short detour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Lovely little harbour with a cafe & toilets. Good place to stop for lunch or afternoon tea. Filming was done here for TV series Game of Thrones.
