We highly recommend this cute little Harbour to all North Coast Causeway visitors - the little cafe will serve hot chocolate and coffee on a cold rainy day, which occasionally occurs!

Ballintoy is a lovely little boat harbour. Plenty of car parking space and a nice little cafe to stop and have refreshments. I would think they have no less than 20 different cakes to choose from.

Part of our own Game of Thrones trip around this coast line. The day we visited was sunny with high winds which made for some pretty impressve waves crashing into this bay. The kids loved the little caves and running over the beach finding unusual stones, lots of seaweed and even a beached fish! Worth the stop and would definitely... More

The staff at the Atlantic Portrush recommended a visit and arranged a taxi to take us down and return for us. The area is 'The Iron Islands' in the game of thrones so attracts a lot of visitors. Unlikely as it seems the little pier side cafe/shack does great food despite its size manages to sort you quickly, with waitress... More

This harbour is a beautiful place to enjoy after a nice lunch nearby, it's quite busy as there is some game of thrones scenes have been filmed here, you can even see game of thrones door no6 in the Fullerton Arms restaurant nearby which is pretty cool.

Was out for Sunday drive (as you do!) And stopped for a while here. Very tranquil listening to the sound of waves. Have American friends visiting this summer and will definitely be taking them to visit here. They have never seen the sea/ocean (took me a moment to get my head around that!) Makes me thankful that we have something... More

One can imagine film directors favouring this location as both the small harbour and the waves hitting the rocks create great photographic opportunities.

Amazing views from the winding road down to the harbour which was undergoing dredging when we visited. It's a beautiful spot for walking or just admiring the views & watching the waves crashing onto the rocks

This place has become increasingly popular since it featured on Game of Thrones but even before the hype this was a lovely little harbour with a boat house and a stunning view across the waters.
