Whitehead County Antrim Northern Ireland

Whitehead is a pretty, seaside village on the eastern coast of Northern Ireland, lying 20 miles from Belfast and roughly half way between the towns of Carrickfergus and Larne. Whitehead is known as the “Town With No Streets”, as all roads and thoroughfares are named WITHOUT the use of the word “street”. It is a Victorian railway village and has a well kept conservation area and is home to the steam trains, the County Antrim Yacht Club and Whitehead Golf Club.

Whitehead forms part of Mid & East Antrim Borough Council which is responsible for leisure facilities, such as the football pitches, open spaces, such as the Diamond Jubilee Wood and for waste collections.

The Wren’s Eggs

Glacial erratics - three large boulders left from the last ice age - sit along the coastline on the Blackhead Path. Known as “The Wren’s Eggs”, they are a popular destination for children at low tide, in search of rock pools to explore and also for those in search of periwinkles.

Whitehead Promenade

Whitehead has a long promenade, suitable for all users, including with prams, buggies and wheelchairs. The promenade stretches from the Yacht Club to the Harbour car park and then joins seamlessly to the Blackhead Path coastal walk along the seashore, out past Sunshine House. This gives a flat walk of about 2 miles in total, popular also with joggers.
