    Easy parking ( very :) ) and worth a visit if you are 'in to' Whisky
    However.. Do not buy the product there..
    We bought a bottle of the 'normal' stuff and a one of the Black.
    Day later we was in Asda and found it was more than 10% cheaper !!!

    You are in a beautiful part of the country..
    Spent a few days touring the Antrim coast a month or so ago but didn't visit the distillery this time..
    Do they still ask for volunteers for whisky tasting sessions..
    I have a certificate somewhere to say I contributed...but I wasn't driving that day :)

    Did the distillery on a motorbike trip. We volunteered as tasters, needless to say there was no more riding that day.

    Giants Causeway worth a visit. Park in the hotel carpark, not he actual "Causeway" one, as its a rip off.
