Out & About

Heritage, Myths & Legends

Glenarm is the first of the nine Glens of Antrim and gateway to the Glens of Antrim famous for their music, myths and legends

A 10-minute drive from Water’s Edge you will find Ardclinis Ruined church. Within the sacred grounds a fairy tree stands adorned with keepsakes left by previous visitors. The viewpoint across to Tír na nÓg, where the sky meets the sea, and the ‘Fairy Hill’ on the horizon makes this a magical place. We visited the ruins of Ardclinis Parish Church recently with some friends and saw the fairy tree adorned with keepsakes from past travellers – a Robin jumping from branch to branch watching our every move….but was it a Robin?

Learn about the history of the flight of the Earls, the bloody sieges, visit the castles both ruined and still occupied and see if you can guess where some of the ideas for storylines in HBO’s Game of Thrones may have originated. Is this the real Westeros and Iron-lands?
