Friday was designated “Antrim Coast”, the day we did the Giant’s Causeway, the Game of Thrones sites (no idea why) and (by luck) my last Northern Ireland tick.
180 miles, and all of them on far better roads than we have in England, an absolute joy. Shame about the drizzle.
A notable absence of coffee shops and pubs, so I parked up here,
and made my own coffees..
The sign said Glenarm was one of the most beautiful villages in Ireland, and perhaps it is , but I only had eyes for the Coast Road Inn.
It’s so good that someone has made a model of it.
Sadly, the Bass sign is a lie.
But you’re used to that.
I don’t believe Game of Thrones is a true story, either, but I’ve never seen it so I can’t be sure. Ballintoy Harbour is where two of the main protagonists in GOT (as the kids call it) had a fight over short measure and crown mark on a pint glass in Series 3.
And if you look closely you can see the micropub where Denys (check sp) is introduced to the joys of Key Keg in Series 17.
Or at least that’s what I told the Japanese tourists.
