The seaside town of Portstewart is the epitome of wild coastal charm. With its long stretch of stunning Blue Flag beach and epic waves that roll in from the Atlantic Ocean, it’s no surprise this place was the inspiration for the Bing Crosby hit, ‘Red Sails in the Sunset’. Follow the Port Path, a gently undulating stretch of scenic coastline offering panoramic sea views towards Donegal, or enjoy a down-to-earth food culture at Harry’s Shack, where you can enjoy sea views and fresh seafood in a beach shack right on the golden sands. Pure bliss.
Why not take the chance to explore the earliest known human settlement on the island of Ireland at Mountsandel Fort along the nearby River Bann in Coleraine, or the dramatic Mussenden Temple perched above the cliff tops of Castlerock? Journey a little further and you’ll be rewarded with a rich history in the plantation village of Eglinton, founded in 1619 by the Grocers' Company of London.
