As exciting as Northern Ireland is, Islandmagee is also the perfect relaxation backdrop. If you prefer to stay close to home, swim in the sea, enrol on a paddleboarding course at Portmuck (5 minute drive away), book a horse riding lesson or visit the Gobbins coastal walk and visitors centre with the Rhinka shop around the corner which is an ice cream must.
For the keen golfers, Larne Golf Club is a 2 minute walk up the hill where you can book the well looked after and one of the most challenging Northern Ireland 9 hole course and meet the very friendly locals. Be sure to say you're staying at Mariner's House. There are also 5 other golf courses within 20 miles.
Whether you want to explore with an action packed holiday or relax in peace and tranquility, both are easy to make happen from Mariners House.
You'll ideally need a car to get here and explore the area. There is a bus once a day running to Whitehead, Carrickfergus and beyond.
You can fit up to 4 cars in the driveway.
When you reach Islandmagee, head down the Low Road, all the way down the Island to Browns Bay. Go through Browns Bay and just past Larne Golf Club after the bend you'll see a private lane on your right hand side. Be careful not to miss it. It's the first big house on the right inside the lane. If you get to the dock you've gone too far and missed the lane.
Tip: Pick up provisions at the SPAR at the head of the island before you drive down and don't forget charcoal for the BBQ
