N Ireland's hidden gems are the Nine Glens of Antrim - outstandingly picturesque.
Most are marked with loop drives so that you can drive slowly up the side of one glen and look into the valley below and the other side of the glen dotted with small white farmhouses and the sea in the distance and it's all picture-postcard beautiful. Then you emerge at the top of the ridge onto some moorlands and turn around to come down the other side of another glen.
I wouldn't pick one glen above another, so you should try them all! But take your time because the panoramic vistas are to die for.

Wonderful day out to a little hidden gem in the Glens of Antrim, one of the most spectacular areas to visit when in Northern Ireland. The large Sandy Beaches of Waterfoot Village of the East Antrim Coastline is a great day out with long walks along the sandy beach, and the boardwalk, a nice little cafe next to the beach and plenty of leisure and relaxation. You'll find this beach to be a lot less jam packed and stressful than some of the larger resort beaches up in Ballycastle and further a field in Portstewart and Portrush but that means a lot more space and peace and quiet for yourself to enjoy.

As you drive along the Coast Road from Larne to Ballycastle you will see directions for each of the glens. The roads up into the glens are narrow and twisting and must be driven carefully but you will be rewarded with beautiful unspoiled scenery.
Perhaps the most spectacular glen is Glenariff rising from the little town of Waterfoot up onto the Antrim plateau. This is the 'queen of the glens' and is certainly the most photographed.

A stay in the Glens is quite amazing. Perfectly situated for visiting the Antrim coast or Belfast. Beautiful inland and coastal scenery all within easy reach.. Pretty villages with interesting pubs and superb hospitality from the locals.

The Glens of Antrim, known locally as 'The Glens', is a region of County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It comprises nine glens or valleys, that run from the Antrim Plateau to the coast. The Glens are an area nature has put on full display the beauty of the flora and fauna of Ireland. Even from our tour bus they were awesome.

We live in the glens, so it's home to us. But there's still that thrill on a nice heading through the glens for a drive. follow the Coast Road from Larne right through to Portstewart. Get to Cushendun and head inland through the Glens, beautiful scenery either way. Stop of at any of the beaches, our favourite has always been Cushendun, lovely quiet little beach. Nice little village to wander round, have a bite to eat before heading further along the coast.
If it's something special you're after, carry on towards Ballycastle and take the scenic Torr Head route. Not to betaken lightly for inexperienced driver though. It's a rollercoaster ride with sharp climbs and declines. But the view you get from the top of the Head is spectacular on a clear day.

Drove through on way from the North to Belfast. Beatiful scenery. Narrowish roads but passable with care.

Must visit. Stunning scenery. East half day trip from Belfast on the way to Torr Head and the Giant's Causeway. Stopped in Cushendall and had coffee at the most charming Revive coffee shop on Main Street

Great day out, took the waterfall trail which was very nice, a number of waterfalls to see, I went to the left and started the walk, think this is the best way to do it.

Its quite steep going down and a lot of steps, no steps on the way back and not as steep. Good for taking photos, the walk was only three or four mile but long enough for me, there are longer trails.
