    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.

    yes GO,the "gobbins "is one you will not forget.
    the giants causeway is a remarkable geological wonder and worth seeing,even though i object to the ludicrous fees.
    But the gobbins cliff path is truly astounding!!
    Well worth the journey and somedays it has that magical
    wonderland feel, if they let you go on it, in a north east gale
    it defies the senses.
    pure magic.
