I've read a few comments on line about how difficult it is to get to Ballintoy Harbour. Not sure what the big deal is. Yes, the road curves around here and there, and you have to be careful if you meet an oncoming car, but, other that that, it's a piece of cake. In fact, it just adds to the... More

This harbour is beautiful. A windy road with a few hairy moments to get down sets the scene for breathtaking scenery. Toilets are available and it was so relaxing to take in all of the scenery. A must see for all. Ann episode of Game of thrones was filmed at this location.

Nestled down a short road from the coastal causeway follow the signs for harbour. Upon arrival your jawbone is sure to drop with the scenary, engulfed in history as far back into the Neolithic times.

We took the windy road to Ballintoy Harbour to see explore a former Game of Thrones filming location. We had a great time "Lordsport" walking around snapping photos & videos, climbing on the grass cover rocks to watch the waves crash in.

Another of the places on the " Game of Thrones " tour but even for non - viewers like ourselves it's well worth visiting. It's a very picturesque little harbour with beautiful views out to sea. Reminiscent of the Giant's Causeway in places with similar rock formations. Busy and well visited.

An amazing hidden jewel off the track! Such an amazing bay and if you are lucky you will see a seal or two! Toilets and a coffee shop.

Absolutely Beautiful Place. This Village has to be one off my favorite places and so close to other places to visit.

This place is awesome. It is hidden and no one really know about it... maybe those who know Game of Thrones... but anyway... It is worthy to drive up here... lovely place

Ballintoy harbour in one of my favourite places it's so beautiful and we always have fun clambering over the rocks. If you've never been then it should be on your bucket list.
