Ballycastle,

Downpatrick Head is located 3 miles north of Ballycastle village standing 126ft above the sea with fantastic views of the Atlantic, the Staggs of Broadhaven and high cliffs along the shore.

Jutting out into the ocean and rising almost 40m above the waves, Downpatrick Head provides unparalleled views of the Atlantic and the unique collection of islands known as the Staggs of Broadhaven. This majestic heritage site lies close to Dun Briste sea stack, with its myriad-coloured layers of rock and flocks of nesting sea birds.
