Northern Ireland Suggestions???

I'll be returning to the Belfast Nashville Music Festival in Belfast (late Feb/early March). I've been there many times. I typically arrive at least five days prior to the festival, and stay at a cottage I adore near Armoy and Ballycastle, and have fallen in love with the Antrim Coast. I spend my days at Ballintoy Harbour, the Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-rede, the Glens of Antrim, Dunluce Castle, etc.

But ... I'm wondering if there's another area -- not too far away -- that might offer some new sights that I might enjoy just as much. FYI, I've enjoyed being based in Wicklow, but not as much as the Antrim Coast. It doesn't have to be in the North--but I'd rather not drive more than a couple of hours from Belfast.

Our interests are primarily nature walks, beautiful mountain and/or coastal views, quaint, charming villages, castles, old churches, historical sights...

FYI, on previous trips I've explored many other areas in the Republic: the Dingle Peninsula, Kilkenny, Killarney, Dublin, Cashel, Donegal, Co. Mayo, Galway, Powerscourt, Newgrange, and more. Loved them all--and especially, the amazing Ashford Castle in Cong. I'm mentioning this because I don't need suggestions to see those places.

Any suggestions of a great place to base for 5 or so days??? Any thoughts about the areas around Newcastle, the Ards Peninsula, or Larne???

Thanks!
