I continued on the Causeway Coastal Route towards a little detour on the peninsula Islandmagee, but first a little stop at Whitehead beach.
The route around the little peninsula is supposed to be very scenic and beautiful but I didn´t see that much. Shortly into the drive, it started raining cats and dogs – it was pouring until I reached the top at Larne when the sun came back.
While I was heading back on the other side of the peninsula towards the Gobbins, a spectacular cliff path, that the Victorian travellers loved to visit and was used in “Game of Thrones”, the pouring cats and dogs already waited for me… So no Gobbins for me (later I read that they are temporarily closed anyway and will be reopened in Spring 2018.
Instead, I decided it was about time for some tea and made my way towards Glenarm Castle, where I kind of ignored the famous walled garden and just enjoyed an afternoon tea on the terrace (of the Glenarm Castle coffee shop – not the castle itself).
