Wish you were here ☔

Raining, windy and miserable, with a car stocked up with lots of food and goodies the bestie and I headed up the North Coast on our little road trip adventure today!

image

A first road trip for my little Jerome and the boy did good!!! 🙂

Today as it was so cold and wet I made sure to layer up to the max, adding the coat it was a 5 thin layer kinda day!
Today’s outfit was from Limited for Marks and Spencer, Primark and GAP.

Initially we had decided we would go to Dunluce Castle, Old Bushmills Distillery and The Ramore Wine Bar in Portrush.  However plans changed and we decided to swap Dunluce Castle for Mussenden Temple instead, I’ve always wanted to go here and Sarah was totally up for it too, even in the terrible weather!!!

image

Even in the miserable weather it was beautiful (but we will definitely be returning again on a better day to check out the views). £4.95 per person, which gave you entry to the whole area and included a free tea or coffee in Hezlett House.

image

It was definitely worth the money! However we only went to the temple today due to the weather.

If you have a fear of sheep this maybe isn’t the place for you, there are sheep free and roaming about the areas you walk through to get to the temple.

And on our way back to the car we walked through what we think was the ruins of the Demense.

A quick warm up, brush of the hair and long dry off we headed to The Old Bushmills Distillery. Unfortunately you aren’t allowed to take any pictures inside due to health and safety but these are the ones I did get. Ps it’s £7.50 per adult and that includes your tour and a glass of whiskey or a soft drink at the end.

Next stop after working up a massive appetite (yeah all the goodies we bought weren’t even touched, but don’t worry they won’t go to waste) we headed off to The Ramore Wine Bar. This is one of our favourite places to eat up the North Coast and I have to say, for me it’s one of the main reasons I go up!

image

For starters we went for the nachos at £4.95, so delicious and we even had to give up 3/4 of the way through (to leave room for dessert of course).

image

Mains we went for burgers, I had the Harbour burger £3.95 and a side of skinny fries £1.95. I can’t remember the name of Sarah’s burger but it had chilli chicken, bacon, the lot on it, hers was £5.95 I think and then a side of garlic chips £1.95. All that alongside two cokes was £22.80 for the pair of us and oh my word was it good, and so filling!

However with a dessert selection like this. . .

We of course had to get some!!!

We went for the £5.00 trio of desserts. Loads of miniatures to chose from we picked the St Honore Gateau, a nutella macaroon and the salted chocolate caramel torte, all completely to die for.  We even brought some home. . .

image

Despite the wet, windy and cold weather we had a great day out, loads of giggles, food and beautiful sites.  We definitely are lucky to live in such a stunning place!!!
