Activities in Carnlough, Northern Ireland


The village of Cushendun is approximately 25 minutes away by car along the Coast Road. Attractions here include:

  • Cushendun Caves—a famous Game of Thrones filming location, this pebbled cove is where Melisandre gave birth to her deadly shadow creature.
  • The Corner House—this cosy café serves as the perfect stop for tea, coffee, something sweet, or a bite of lunch. (Closed in winter.)
  • Mary McBride’s—the original bar, a 5×9 foot room that now serves as an Irish Whiskey Bar, is one of Ireland’s smallest pubs. Mary McBride’s is a traditional pub with live music and bar eats downstairs. It also features a seafood bistro called The Little Black Door. As in Ballygally Castle Hotel, they have a Game of Thrones door carved with wood from the Dark Hedges.
  • Cushendun Beach
  • Cregagh Wood—this small woodland area is a hidden gem, but if you can find it, you’ll be treated to a magical walk. Keep your eyes out for red squirrels!
  • The Old Church Centre—built in 1840 for the Church of Ireland, this beautiful old church has been restored as a small arts and cultural centre. They now host temporary exhibitions and special events.
