Activities & Places to Visit.

Atlantic Golf Lodge is an ideal base for a range of activities – angling, cycling, golf, surfing, walking and scenic touring of the Causeway Coast and Donegal.

The Causeway Coast and Antrim Glens – an area of unsurpassed beauty, is seen as 'one of the world's great road journeys' featuring the Giant's Causeway. We have listed some of our highlights:

Mussenden TempleBeaches & Surfing - The North Coast has many fantastic beaches – they are all golden sand, and several are good for surfing. We have seven local beaches within a short drive which are designated as EU Blue Flag beaches. Castlerock beach is a Blue Flag beach and is 5 minutes walk.

You can walk to the “bar mouth” of the River Bann (one of very few rivers in the northern hemisphere which runs north) and can then walk back via the sand dunes and the golf course. In the summer the beach is patrolled by Lifeguards. The waves at Castlerock can be suitable for boogie boarding.

Golf Course

Golf - we have four great links courses within a short drive – all of which make it into the top 100 UK & Ireland golf courses. We are on the doorstep of Castlerock Golf Club with whom we have a preferential arrangement – so ask us to introduce you. We have Portstewart and Royal Portrush golf clubs within 20 minutes drive, and Ballyliffin golf club in Donegal within a short drive also.

Dunluce castleDunluce Castle is sited dramatically close to the edge of a headland, along the North Antrim coast. Surrounded by jaw dropping coastal scenery, this medieval castle stands where an early Irish fort was once built and where its history can be traced back to early Christians and Vikings.

Giants CausewayThe Giant’s Causeway is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. More than forty thousand many-sided columns of basalt of varying heights but each slotted neatly together, beehive fashion, stretching along our shore and forming a pavement out to sea . . . small wonder that this astonishing natural phenomenon has been described as the 'eighth wonder of the world'.

Carrick rope bridge

 

The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge boasts an exhilarating rope bridge experience.

Rathin Island

Rathlin Island is very unspoiled –at one end of the island is an RSPB bird sanctuary, where you can see a range of birds, including Puffins and Peregrine Falcon.

Nine Glens

The Nine Glens of Antrim. Famed in poetry, song, myth and magic there are nine Glens of Antrim, each endowed with an evocative name and each weaving its own special magic. Lush, green secret places with the sound of water alternately softly swirling, then falling in dramatic torrents, the nine Glens delight the senses. Entwined with their rich beauties are equally diverse and magical stories, combining the colourful history, myth and the traditions of the communities within the glens.
