            On the thrilling Gobbins Experience, nature isn’t content to just sit back and be admired. It completely engulfs you: from the all-enveloping Irish Sea winds and the dolphins dancing off the coastline. Pull on your walking boots and enjoy this 2.5-hour walking tour through tunnels and bridges with the waves crashing at your feet.
            1. Glenarm & Carnlough
              Step back in time to a fairy-tale castle and walled garden that is a haven for botanists, foodies and Instagrammers. Meander through the ancient canopy of Glenarm Forest – breathe in the aroma of wild garlic in spring or go red-squirrel spotting. Or try out your sea legs in Carnlough. Set sail from the harbour in an original fishing vessel or experience life beneath the surf on an underwater snorkelling adventure.
            2. Whitehead & Islandmagee
              Whitehead is a postcard-perfect town, a relic from a bygone era. The late Victorians and early Edwardians flocked to this charming seaside resort and more than a century later it still retains all its quirk, colour, and charm. Islandmagee is just a short drive away from Whitehead offering rural tranquillity and plenty of Vitamin Sea
