Revisiting the #CausewayCoastalRoute and the #MourneCoastalRoute

Yesterday I traveled up to Ballycastle in County Antrim on my bike to revisit some parts of both the Causeway Coastal and Mourne Coastal Routes. My book is almost finished, but there were some sections where I was missing some photos or where I wanted to retake existing ones. The first port of call was at The Dark Hedges (of Game of Thrones Fame) near Armoy. Due to motorcycle races, the streets around Armoy were closed, so I had to take a detour. The Hedges are as magical and mystical as they are portrayed in Game of Thrones. I went to Fair Head and on a fine day there were great views from the top of the head out to Rathlin Island and even to Scotland. I also visited Torr Head and rode down the A2 around the Antrim coast. I also wanted a photo of St Patrick's Grave in Downpatrick, and of the Town Hall & Bagenal's Castle in Newry. Below are some photos from the trip
