Just a few miles north of Ballycastle, on the edge of the earth overlooking the wild Atlantic, lies the rugged, windswept outcrop of Downpatrick Head. Now a Signature Discovery Point on the famed Wild Atlantic Way, the area provides unparalleled views of the ocean, including a unique vantage point over the Stags of Broadhaven. A majestic sea stack rises tower-like from the sea, with its centuries of layered rock providing shelter to thousands of nesting sea birds.

Downpatrick Head is an easy place to reach and just a short walk from the carpark. Watch out when driving there its a narrow road and you might need to reverse up if it gets busy. While the place is stunning itself, my favorite angle here is with the drone and a person standing on the edge of the cliffs. Please watch out as the location is not fenced.
