General information

Bay which has a very pleasant coastal walk and is also good

for swimming. Further on, you take the road to the picturesque

secluded fishing harbour of Port Muck which is at the foot of

a very steep road. Islandmagee which is a peninsula and not

actually an island has a host of interesting historical sites, is

popular for horse-riding and has good coastal walking paths

Getting to the start:

To most exciting way to get to Islandmagee is to take the

short ferry ride from Larne. The boats, called the Mary-Ann or

the Adrienne, depart from Larne harbour close to the main
