Beautiful – and free – visitors’ map

We now have a lovely map in the shop: ‘Glens of Antrim on the Causeway Coastal Route’ that highlights the best places to see and visit – and it is free!  Generously funded by the Coastal Communities Fund, administered by Carrickfergus Enterprise, the map not only points visitors to places of interest but also gives information on local accommodation providers, restaurants, cafes and bars, craft and artisan food shop (yes, Blackthorn and Willow!) as well as tour guides and activities. 

It is beautifully illustrated by Joanna Martin –  designer, illustrator and printmaker. Joanna is a keen sailor whose work is inspired by the Northern Irish coastline and its wildlife, particularly birds. Visitors to our shop will recognise her cushions and cards that we stock here. 

Now that spring is really here at last (yes, I know that it has been raining today but that is spring!) there are more reasons to drive along the Causeway Coast and see what is on offer.
