Murlough Bay (from Irish: Murlach, meaning "Sea Inlet") in County Antrim, Northern Ireland is a bay on the north coast of Northern Ireland between Fair Head and Torr Head. It is known for its outstanding beauty and remote location, with close views of Rathlin Island and views across the ocean to the Mull of Kintyre, Islay, Jura and various other Scottish islands. The local geology is typical of the Antrim topography with basalt overlaying sandstone and limestone. The area has many kilns used in the production of lime. (from Wikipedia)

It's only a short drive, about 15 minutes, from Ballycastle. You can park slightly above the bay, there's a small car park there, and continue few hundreds meters down to the bay.

As a sign at the car park informs, this location was used in the popular series Game of Thrones, where is represents The Stormlands.
