Dark Hedges is a hedgerow of ancient beech trees in County Antrim. I didn't find out about the place until we arrived in Dublin. It was actually a Northern Ireland tourism promotion poster at the end of the gangway right as we stepped off the airplane. I saw it and instantly new I had to go.
Not being a real tourist destination it is actually a little difficult to find. There are plenty of maps online, but there are no signs whatsoever. I was lucky to be able to get into the area while driving around for Tillie's nap, and we just had to keep our eyes peeled while careening down country roads. But then, lo and behold, we saw the trees while passing a junction. And what a beautiful sight.
