It is a must! But, the trees were less plentiful than I thought. One side is better than the other. You should arrive by the north, Ballinlea Road and turn south on Bregagh Road were the trees that form the Dark Hedges are located. We...More

Arrived on a cold, late afternoon, very lucky that for a while there was not another soul (not a live one anyhow). Just me, the crows, and wind murmuring through the trees. Haunting atmospheric place under those conditions. Wouldn’t have been the same with a...More
