Come to Carnlough

The high plateaus of this region are broken by steep glens and plunging coastal cliffs with dramatic views. The village of Carnlough, ‘place of cairns’ is beautifully situated on the famous Antrim coast road in Northern Ireland. The picturesque harbour below in the town is steeped in history and boasts a magnificent backdrop – Glencoy, the second of the nine Glens of Antrim.

The harbour steps below in Carnlough were used for a scene in season 6 of Game of Thrones. Arya resurfaces from these steps.

Carnlough beach in the photo below is continually monitored to provide a high standard of cleanliness for bathing and swimming. I’ll swim there soon. I need someone to monitor my swimming and I might have other company too. Dolphins and porpoises can be seen along this part of the Northern Irish coast at all times of the year.

I'm a life long learner. I've been on a voyage of discovery since childhood so ask why a lot. I'm Irish and a bit American. I write because its freeing and healing. I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!
