Things to see and do at Islandmagee

Visit Brown's Bay at Islandmagee

A visit to Islandmagee is a trip back to less rushed and stressful times. A peninsula on the East Antrim coast steeped in history with cottages, rolling fields, quiet villages and spectacular coastline, it is a microcosm of the Northern Ireland countryside.

Bring a picnic and enjoy a picnic by the coast; watch out for seabirds like Kittiwakes, Guillemots and Razorbill.


Down the hill from the quiet village of Mullaghboy, you enter an area rich with history, at various times a haven for everything from religion through smuggling, fishing and lime production.

Skernaghan Point

Skernaghan Point is the very northern tip of Islandmagee, with stunning views of the Antrim coast to the north and across the Irish Sea to Scotland.

The Gobbins

The Gobbins is a spectacular series of limestone cliffs, reaching over 200 feet high in places, that stretch 3 to 4 miles along the eastern coast of Islandmagee.
Please note that the Gobbins cliff path is not run by the National Trust, please contact the Gobbins Visitor Centre for any enquiries.
