Portbradden harbour is a lovely wee place of a few houses, there's a place to park, I didn't see any toilets or picnic tables, if you want to get down to the rocks it's over a stile and very slippery. We walked around the rocks crom white park bay which was pretty dangerous even at low tide, and passed through... More

We stumbled upon this place completely by accident and were amazed. Fresh Fish, and the deserts - they were to die for! A wide range of home-baked cakes and pastries, all served in a homely environment by friendly and outgoing staff. Make the trip and visit this little gem, you will be sure to be impressed.

Portbradden. Is a must see even from the main road such a picture so quaint. Beautiful coloured houses and a very very small church. It's. A lovely walk from there to whitepark bay unspoiled beach which takes you threw to balintoy harbour. Were you can have a relaxing snack at the cafe

We had a lovely evening walking around here, the scenery and views are straight out of a art studio. I would recommend bringing a camera or an easel and paints, you won't be disappointed

Not much to do here but very picturesque. Quaint little church. Not much parking at the bottom of the steep, windy lane which leads down to it and I can imagine it could get quite congested in the summer months.

This is a very small harbour with no public parking and is situated at the west end of Whitepark Bay. The best viewing point would be from the Causeway Coast Road where you can see the whole of the bay and the harbour. Look out for the cows that walk along the beach.

We stayed here for a week and saw seals in the bay. Walked over rocks to white park bay when the sea tide was out... the house was fabulous and all in all we had an amazing relaxing time! Thought to be the home to the smallest church in Ireland, however it is actually not an official church - it... More

Port Braddan lies at the western end of Whitepark Bay and consists of a tiny hamlet of houses which were once occupied by salmon fishermen. At one time salmon nets were seen all along the Causeway Coast, but now have largely disappeared due to overfishing. During the summer months the twisting road down to the harbour can become conjested, so... More
