Ballintoy, County Antrim, Northern Ireland – Taken September 19, 2015
We took a beautiful scenic walk from Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge to Ballintoy Harbour! On our way up from Ballintoy Harbour – about halfway up Harbour Road, I took this photograph and it is one of my favourites. This is the Ballintoy Parish Church, which has a long and rich history in the area. I like the single white building – blending into the sky but at the same time in contrast with the ground. It even looks like it is steeped in history!
Ballintoy was one of our favourite stops in Ireland – quaint, quiet, friendly and beautiful. You almost feel like you are in another decade, in a simpler time. And I really liked that! The gorgeous scenery just adds to the draw of this village. Ballintoy is also a good location for a home base while exploring the Antrim Coast. Besides being close to Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and Ballintoy Harbour, Ballintoy is also close to the Dark Hedges, Giant’s Causeway, Bushmills, Portrush, Rathlin Island and Ballycastle. So it makes sense to situate yourself here and make day trips out to the surrounding area. We would definitely return to Ballintoy!
