The Glens of Antrim, as the name suggests is a series of valleys in country Antrim in Northern Ireland. There are nine Glens or valleys which radiate out from the Antrim plateau to the coast and provide a region of stunning scenery, dotted with a number of quaint rural and coastal settlements.
The area covered by the Glens is a major tourism attraction in Northern Ireland. The lush quiet valleys lie within the old Celtic kingdom of Dal Riada and the history, myths and traditional culture are still enjoyed by visitors today. Traditional music, festivals and the friendly locals are a trademark of the area which combined with the outstanding natural beauty of the area make this a place not to be missed.
Famed in poetry, song, myth and magic there are nine Glens of Antrim, each endowed with an evocative name and each weaving its own special magic.
Glenarm - The glen of the army, with Glenarm village, eleven miles north of Larne, on the famous Causeway Coastal Route.
Glencloy - The glen of the hedges, two miles north of Glenarm, with the village of Carnlough at its foot.
Glenariff - The arable or fertile glen, the best-known of the nine as the 'Queen of the Glens', sweeps majestically towards the village of Waterfoot.
Glenballyemon - Edwardstown glen, at the foot of which is Cushendall - more of less at the centre of the nine glens.
Glenaan - The glen of the colt's foot or rush lights, a rugged glen - having the site of the legendary Ossian's grave, with the Cushendall-Ballymoney mountain road.
Glencorp - The glen of the slaughtered, close by Glenaan and roughly parallel to the main road from Cushendall to Cushendun.
Glendun - The glen of the brown river, adjacent to Cushendun village; spanned by a viaduct on the main Cushendall-Ballycastle road.
Glenshesk - The sedgy glen, east of the town of Ballycastle, and sweeping towards the ruins of historical Bonamargy friary.
Glentaisie - Named after 'Taisie', princess of Rathlin Island, roughly west of Ballycastle and, like Glenshesk, close to the town.
