Help choosing lodging on Antrim coast area

Jump to last reply

We are young senior citizens torn between staying at a B&B in the Ballintoy area or Portrush on the first leg of a 15-day trip. Ballycastle/Ballintoy seems much quieter than Portush and we wonder how long it will take us to get to and from dinner and what the level of driving difficulty might be in the dark (early September trip). We are thinking of staying in the area for two or three nights before moving on to northwestern Ireland. While there we want to see Giant's Causeway, walk the bridge, perhaps picnic in a scenic area area we've read of but can't remember the name just now, do some walking, and do the Bushmill's tour. Can someone who has been there or lives there give us an overview of these two areas? Specific 4-5 star B&B or small hotel recommendations are welcome.
