Cushendun Walking Tour & Food Tastings
(Walking Time 1 hour 15mins)
In one of most endearing villages on the Causeway Coastal Route join your local guide Kevin to appreciate Cushendun, it’s rolling glens, winding river, its unique village architecture and views just 12 miles to Scotland.
Approaching Cushendun you may think you have discovered the stunning location of a hidden village of unusual architecture, friendly people and space to explore. Make no mistake, as you take the brown river walk and hear the hidden, often turbulent history of the surrounding hills and glens you really will fall in love with the village you have unearthed. Get a sense of where you are with strong and authentic heritage and local seasonal food prepared by local chefs in the location of one of Irelands smallest pubs. A welcome smile awaits you, even on the riverbank (approach the local nannie with caution!). Discover local legends, hidden stories in the village, spend time with the locals, stunning scenery and the delicious seasonal local food.
