Antrim Coast and Belfast? -- weekend trip

Jump to last reply

As we start our final year here in the UK, I'm taking a look at my bucket list, so to speak, and would really like to see the Giant's Causeway. The best time for us to fit that in is going to be over the August bank holiday weekend and would entail a Friday-Monday roundtrip into Belfast City. We are a family of 4 (kids 14 & 11) and will hire a car.

So, heading north is a given. Thought we would target Bushmills for that portion of the trip: Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Dunluce castle, and perhaps Rathlin Island.

Question is, should be plan for a day in Belfast as well? Normally we like to take in some history in addition to the great outdoors. Belfast history is largely of a more recent variety and one that we are only notionally aware.

One night in Belfast then or stay north and perhaps walk around the Antrim Mountains and Glens? or something else that I've not yet considered?

Ultimately, that's a choice that only we can make but I'm interested in hearing your feedback.
