Whitehead Holiday Homes Antrim
Whitehead is a seaside village on the east coast of County Antrim lying almost midway between Carrickfergus and Larne.
The town developed as a crucial rail link to Larne and Belfast and encouraged many people to live in the area, a haven from the bustle of the city. In the late 1900’s it grew into one of the province’s most popular resorts.
Located at the base of Muldersleigh Hill, at the entrance to Belfast Lough, Whitehead lies in a small bay between the limestone cliffs of Whitehead and the black volcanic cliff of Blackhead, with the Blackhead Lighthouse on top, marking the entrance to the Lough.
Whitehead is home to the Railway Preservation Society of Ireland and County Antrim Yacht Club as well as being the starting point for the popular Gobbins Path seaside walk. On the opposite coast of Belfast Lough, the Copeland Islands, Bangor and part of the County Down coastline, are clearly visible.
The town boasts two popular golf courses, Whitehead and Bentra, both providing excellent sporting challenges to the most experienced golfer as well as the eager learner.
The rugged and varied Antrim Coast is nowhere better appreciated than from along Blackhead path, which runs from Whitehead past Port Davy to Blackhead itself. For the more energetic, the climb up the stone steps to the lighthouse brings ample reward.
Whitehead received a silver at the Britain in Bloom awards in 2005 and 2006, and a bronze in 2007. The town’s Brighter Whitehead group planted many of the flowers
