    Where: Glenariff is one of the nine Glens of Antrim – forged by giant glaciers during the Ice Age and each with a unique beauty and character.

    What’s nearby: Glenariff Forest Park is a leafy oasis full of surging waterfalls and riverside rambles. Perched on the headland north of Glenariff sits the crumbling 13th century Red Bay Castle – perfect for exploring and scenic ocean views.

    Glencar Lake, County Leitrim

    Where: Steep cliffs drop dramatically to the shores of Glencar Lake, which straddles the border between counties Leitrim and Sligo. The only sound you're likely to hear in this tranquil oasis is the water cascading over nearby waterfalls, the most famous of which was immortalised in words by the great WB Yeats in his mystical poem, The Stolen Child.

    What’s nearby: After taking in the peaceful lake, wander over to Glencar Waterfall, found on the hills above. Explore the unique crafts of the area at Leitrim Design House in the town of Carrick-on-Shannon.
