                                               The Folklore of Trees
                                               There has always been a strong association in the Glens of Antrim
                                               between the hawthorn tree and fairies. Small, gnarled hawthorns,
                                               often of great age, survive on slopes and in fields where other
                                               obstructions to the plough have long since been removed. Stories
                                               abound of the misfortunes that have befallen those foolish enough
                                               to cut down a ‘skeoch’, as they are known (someone struck dumb
                                               or even a man’s head turned back-to-front).
                                                    Twigs of hazel are favoured by water diviners and noted for
                                               providing protection against mischievous fairies, (tying a hazel
                                               branch to a horse discourages fairies from taking the animal).
                                               Alder, on the other hand, is feared for harbouring water spirits and

                                                    The survival of beliefs and traditions within the Glens
                                               continues to enrich the cultural heritage of the area, and, although
                                               not everyone will admit to believing in fairies, few would dare to
                                               cut down a hawthorn tree.

 Back to nature
 Nature is what we’re famous
 for and it’s arguably what
 we do best. While farming
 has helped to shape the land
 over generations, giving us
 the traditional patchwork quilt
 scenery, we take huge pride
 in the unspoilt natural beauty
 of our land and seascapes. Our
 rivers, glens, forests, mountains
 and shores are as nature
 intended and shaped them and
 ready for you to enjoy.

 The Glens
 of Antrim
 These nine famous glens, endowed with evocative names and blessed
 with a diversity of landscape are also rich in history, in folklore and
 in the natural beauty that is a world away from the frantic bustle of
 modern life. Famed in legend are the magnificent Glens of Antrim. The
 rich musical sounds of their names and their meanings relate to the
 character of the glens or events of long ago. Characterised by tumbling
 waterfalls, rushing rivers, lush forest parks and spectacular scenery,
 each glen is unique in its beauty and each deserves a visit.

                                                      a few of the many tales that will
                                                      be told throughout your stay.

                                                      Finn McCool
                                                      The legend tells us that the Irish Giant Finn McCool
                                                      had a rival - a Scottish giant named Benandonner.
                                                      Finn McCool decided to build a causeway to Scotland
                                                      so that he could challenge his adversary in battle.
                                                      When the work was completed, the causeway
                                                      stretched from North Antrim to Staffa. Benandonner

                                                      fight for supremacy. As Benandonner appeared over
                                                      the horizon, Finn McCool realised in horror that he
                                                      had taken on a rival much bigger than himself. He
                                                      ran home to his wife, Oonagh. What to do? The quick
                                                      thinking Oonagh disguised Finn as a baby and made
                                                      him curl up in an enormous cradle. Benandonner,
                                                      faced with the sight of this huge ‘child’, took fright at
                                                      the thought of the size of his father and fled back to

 Fairy Stories
 Spirited stories are handed down
 through the ages with, it sometimes
 seems, every house of importance
 boasting its own ghost. Story telling
 isn’t confined to traditional tales,
 for in almost every pub you’ll find
 someone ready to spin a yarn to an
 appreciative audience! Perhaps its
 something in our water... or it could
 be that it’s the local whiskey which
 prompts spirited tales!

The Leap
of the Dog
Limavady derives its name from
the Irish ‘Leim an Mhadaidh’
meaning leap of the dog, arising
from the legendary leap over
the River Roe by a dog owned
by the O’Cahan Clan to warn the
chieftains of an enemy ambush.
The jump took place from the
Dogleap Bridge, in the Roe Valley
Country Park, where the site of the
O’Cahan’s castle once stood.

   Lots for everyone
      in Newtownabbey
   Located on the idyllic shoreline of Belfast Lough, yet just ten minutes from the famous attractions
   of Belfast, you’ll find so much to see and do in Newtownabbey.
   There’s plenty for the outdoors enthusiasts, with fishing at Tildarg Fishery, horse-riding at
   Laurelview Stud & Riding Centre and top class golfing for all abilities at Ballyclare Golf Club,
   Greenacres Golf Centre and Burnside Golf.
   Explore a fascinating history at Patterson’s Spade Mill or journey back to rural Ulster life of
   past centuries at atmospheric Sentry Hill Historic House & Visitor Centre. Or why not explore
   Ballyrobert Cottage Garden & Nursery, beautifully designed by Irish-born William Robinson.
   Shopaholics should visit the Abbeycentre where big brand names sit comfortably with individual
   boutiques. But if you like the more traditional shopping experience, why not visit the former
   market town of Ballyclare, famous for retaining its independent retailers in the heart of the town.
   Enjoy superb local produce, sublimely cooked at restaurants like Barnaby’s and Oregano, which
   has just won a coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand award.
                                            And in the evenings you can relax at the newly opened
                                            Theatre at the Mill with its diverse programme. Or if you
                                            like more action packed evening entertainment, take in a
                                            movie or try your luck at tenpin bowling in Glengormley
                                            before sampling some modern food and music in the
                                            village’s restaurants and bars.
                                            At the end of the day, you’ll find no better place to check
                                            in at welcoming B&B’s like Abbeydene House, great value
                                            modern hotels like Corr’s Corner and Chimney Corner,
                                            or budget beating accommodation at Loughshore
                                            Caravan Park.
