A stone’s throw from your holiday cottage in Aghadowey, the Causeway Coast is a breathtaking stretch of craggy clifftops and sweeping, sandy bays. Following the winding coast road with Atlantic storms battering the rocks below has to be one of the best drives in the world. Complete the whole of the Causeway Coastal Route and you will see the very best of the region, from the vibrant city of Belfast to ancient Derry. Exploring this spectacular environment, it’s easy to see why it has become popular among filmmakers, with 26 locations in the Game of Thrones.

These hexagonal basalt columns date back to the volcanic age and are a must-see on self-catering holidays in Aghadowey. The imposing medieval structure of Carrickfergus Castle and Glenarm Castle and Gardens are among Northern Ireland’s most iconic landmarks, while the country’s scenery doesn’t get much more impressive than the Glens of Antrim or Torr Head.

Thanks to the town’s idyllic location near the banks of the River Bann and Agivey River, holiday cottages in Aghadowey are popular among anglers. The town’s stadium hosts regular motorbike racing and rallying on a disused World War II airfield – a spectacle which is well worth seeing if you get the chance. On the outskirts of the town, the Brown Trout Inn is the place to go for an evening drink or a bite to eat. The menu celebrates the best of the area’s local produce, with a variety of freshly cooked dishes including grilled trout and slow-roasted lamb shanks. There is also an outstanding nine-hole golf course which crosses water no less than seven times.
