The Cornish style village of Cushendun in County Antrim close to the very north east tip of Ireland was designed by Clough Williams-Ellis, the creator of Portmeirion in Wales. The village has a pretty almshouse group of buildings and pillars topped with stone orbs. It lies on the river Dun at the end of the Glendun valley and is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. It also has a nice beach.
Places of interest in the area include the remains of Castle Carra, Cushendun Caves , Mass Rock - where Mass was celebrated in olden times before a church was built in the area and the Gloonan Stone - opposite Craigagh Church with a depression which is said to have been made by St Patrick when he knelt to pray.
