Set in the mouth of the River Dun at the foot of Glendun, this small coastal village is packed with architectural heritage including the neo-Georgian Glenmona House and ruins of a 14th-century castle. With a sheltered harbour and beautiful beach, its traditional stone walls lead to quaint shops and cosy pubs including Mary McBride's, once one of the smallest pubs in Ireland.
The red squirrel is one of the most popular and well loved mammals and Cushendun is one of the best places in Northern Ireland to spot them.
The Great Glens Grassland Trail is a fantastic example of an innovative project, which has created new ways for people to get closer to nature.
Wander through the historic coastal village and see if you can spot a red squirrel, soak up the views from the harbour and take a stroll along the beach at Cushendun.
