This is definitely somewhere you should visit. I just love this place - it brings back so many memories of my childhood spent on Downhill beach playing in the sand. The temple was built by Earl Bishop Hervey in the 18th century. It is now perched precariously on the cliff edge as the elements have eroded the cliff away. Apparently you used to be able to walk right round it but now it is right on the cliff edge. The National Trust have had to reinforce the cliff face to save it from falling into the sea. The views from here cannot be beaten - Portstewart/Portrush and skerries to your right and Donegal to your left. At the bottom of the cliffs is approx 10miles of golden sand. Where else would you find this beauty? It is just on my doorstep and every time I visit I am amazed by its beauty - should it be on a lovely sunny summer day or a blustery winter day!
You can even get married here - really something different.
Worth a visit. Amazing views. Wrap up warm as it can be windy even in good weather. A bit of a walk over fields - often littered with sheep poo. Car parking can be expensive, so park a little furthe away for free.
