Feast your eyes
If you have time for a tipple after a long day spent on the course, you won't regret making your way to Bushmills, the island's oldest working distillery. Whiskey has been distilled right here since 1608, when King James I first gave the go ahead – and in the last 400 years, it's safe to say they've perfected the craft. From here, Ballintoy, the picturesque harbour of Game of Thrones® fame, is just a short distance away, perfect for a quick photo op. But the one place not to miss is Harry's Shack, the humble restaurant sitting quite literally on Portstewart Strand: you won't find better, fresher fish anywhere in the world. Dig in.
You simply can't make your way to this part of the island without visiting Dunluce Castle, the enchanting, ruined castle with a dramatic history, which has been clinging to the North Antrim cliffs since the 16th century.
