Ballintoy is situated on the north coast of County Antrim in Northern Ireland, some 7 miles east of Bushmills and the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and 6 miles west of Ballycastle. It is bounded to the north by the Atlantic Ocean, and the west coast of Scotland is only a short boat trip away.

Set in spectacular scenery, there are several important archaeological and historical sites in the Ballintoy area. Many of these, such as Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Ballintoy Harbour, Ballintoy Parish Church, White Park Bay and Dunseverick Castle are among the most popular tourist locations in Northern Ireland and they are used to promote the province throughout the world.
