Today, we commenced our tour at Larne and travelled down to Carrickfergus to vist the 12th century castle located in the magnificent harbour. We joined in an escorted tour of the castle and availed of photo opps.

Next we drove to view Lough Neagh from the vantage point of Ardbroe which boasts both an ancient stone cross (see image) and ruined abbey.

Then on to the Giant’s Causeway, World Heritage Site which dates back some 60M years and comprised 40,000 pieces of hexagonal, basalt rock. This was peak season and the site was at full capacity.

Finally, we drove to Londonderry in preparation for our tour of the West of Ireland.

A good day with dry weather.
