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 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.

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.
