Emerald Isle

Last weekend I took my 10 year old son exploring at Ballintoy harbour – walking west there are a number of caves to explore. Equipment needed? Wellington boots and a torch. Some of them are cavernous and some an adult needs to mind their head.


Little fear of hitting your head here, just of getting your feet wet. Maybe the chance of disturbing a nesting bird from a crevice in the roof.

In the car park outside the largest cave I found this – the Emerald isle has seen better days. No longer sea worthy and abandoned.
