Walking and Cycling



Walking and cycling in Antrim and Newtownabbey means enjoying some of the most picturesque trails in Northern Ireland. Stepping out and pedalling down are great ways for the whole family to get active, have fun, and experience some of the most stunning sights and scenery anywhere in the country. Furthermore, it can all be done safely, along secure way-marked pathways and cycle routes.

Take the Antrim Town Loop; four and a half leisurely miles (about 7 km) that guide you along the Six Mile Water River, into the beautiful 400-year old gardens of Antrim Castle Gardens and Clotworthy House. If you’re feeling more energetic, stride to the top of Carnmoney Hill. The climb through its ancient woodland may leave you breathless, but the wonderful views over Belfast Lough will make it all worthwhile.
