Eyes Open Ireland - Jan of JanMary Designs

Today's Eyes Open Ireland comes courtesy of Jan of JanMary Designs.

I am a jeweller, blogger and photographer and live with my husband, 3 kids and a cat in County Antrim in N Ireland. I love heading out along the causeway coast with my camera. My images are available for sale as blank notecards in my etsy shop

Today I would love you to join me on the coastal path near Ballintoy. It is a favourite place for our family to walk, with great views of the rope-bridge, and Fair Head in the distance. On a clear day you can see Scotland!

Be careful of the cliff edge

The small white church of Ballintoy is up ahead

with lots of narrow fields behind the village

Your reward, at the end of the walk is Ballintoy Harbour, and usually an ice-cream!

Thanks for joining me on a walk today, and I hope it has given you a glimpse of the delights of this rural rugged coast line on the north coast of Ireland.
- Jan

Aren't these beautiful!? They make me yearn for warm weather! and ice-cream!

Have photos of your own you'd like to share?
Send them my way and tell me why you took the photo, which county it is in and your name and Etsy shop link. You can convo me on Etsy or email me at

Thanks so much for sharing with us, Jan!
