Amanda Gillanders

we spent one night at Carntogher, Bronagh was absolutely fab and cabin was immaculate, we wished we had booked longer and definitely will be back. The fenced in garden was brilliant for our 4 children to play especially the 2 little ones we could watch them from inside or out knowing they were safe. They spent that much time running around the slept soundly all night. Great place to explore the country and use as a base. Great for families loved our short trip.

Carntogher History Trail

The beautiful landscape of the Carntogher area west of Maghera in County Derry contains a wealth of sites of archaeological and environmental importance. The best of these have been presented in this trail, tracing man’s impact on the local environment from the neolithic period to the present day.

The Giants Causeway

The Giant’s Causeway Cliff-top Experience is a fantastic 5-mile hike from the ruin of Dunseverick Castle to Northern Ireland’s first World Heritage Site, the Giant’s Causeway.

Seamus Heaney HomePlace

Seamus Heaney HomePlace is located in the village of Bellaghy, situated just 45 minutes from both Belfast and Derry City and is just off the main road which links the two cities. Seamus Heaney himself was born and raised within the area and choose Bellaghy as his final resting place.

Drumnaph Community Nature Reserve

Drumnaph Community Nature Reserve is an exciting collaboration between The Woodland Trust and Carntogher Community Association.  The use of the site is closely monitored and managed by both organisations

Dunluce Castle

The iconic ruin of Dunluce Castle bears witness to a long and tumultuous history. First built on the dramatic coastal cliffs of north County Antrim by the MacQuillan family around 1500, the earliest written record of the castle was in 1513.

An Carn Cultural Centre

An Carn Cultural Centre approximately 1 mile away. The widely respected gift shop specialises in traditional crafts and gifts such as pottery, jewellery, books and cards. Recently opening An Croi coffee shop on site.

The Dark Hedges

It was intended as a compelling landscape feature to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House. Two centuries later, the trees remain a magnificent sight and have become one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland. In fact, the iconic trees have been used as a filming location in HBO’s epic series Game of Thrones®, representing the King’s Road.

Friels Bar and Restaurant

Friels Bar and Restaurant is currently run by the fifth generation of the Friel family. The bar has been in the family name for over one hundred years. In the public bar, you will get a real feel of the old world, with pictures and memorabilia of bygone times. Their roaring log fire in winter makes Friels a cosy place to spend an evening.
