Local Services in County Antrim
County Antrim, Northern Ireland, is situated in the northeast coast of Ireland. It is bordered by a 13-mile-wide channel which separates the Torr Head from the Scottish coast. From the famous glens to the Giant’s Causeway, Antrim has an abundance of natural attractions. The Glens of Antrim are nine valleys (glens) that sweep across the county. The Giant's Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a unique landscape of basalt columns and cliffs.
The Bushmills distillery produces legendary whiskey, and of course there is also the capital city of Northern Ireland, Belfast, which offers a rich and textured history, nightlife, and a burgeoning business and tech scene spearheaded by the Titanic Quarter.
Antrim’s coasts feature a number of well-known resort towns, including Portrush (with its famous golf links), Portballintrae and Ballycastle; on the east Cushendun, Cushendall and Waterfoot on Red Bay, Carnlough and Glenarm, Larne on the Sea of Moyle, and Whitehead on Belfast Lough. The valleys of the Bann and Lagan rivers, with the intervening shores of Lough Neagh, form Antrim’s lush lowlands.
