Ballintoy

(4.8/5 based on 4,000+ reviews for 5 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, nature
Ballintoy is a small village, townland (of 274 acres) and civil parish in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is located alongside the B15 coast road, 28km north-east of Coleraine, 8km west of Ballycastle and between it and Bushmills. It is in the historic barony of Cary. The village is located about one kilometre from Ballintoy Harbour, a small fishing harbour located at the end of a very small, narrow, steep road down Knocksaughey hill which passes by the entrance to Larrybane and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. The harbour is host to a dawn Service on Easter Sunday each year.There has been no significant development within the village in the past and, as a result, Ballintoy's population has slowly declined and was only 165 people in the 2001 Census. The village has modest commercial and social facilities including tourist accommodation, restaurants, several small shops, and two churches. The best known church is the distinctive white Ballintoy Parish Church on the hill above the harbour. The village was originally built around a single street separating the inland pastures from the strip fields running towards the sea. Two of the village’s oldest hotels and pubs, the Carrick-A-Rede Hotel and the Fullerton Arms, still stand on this street. The village is in the area covered by Moyle District Council.
