Cushendall is an attractive village nestled in the heart of the Glens of Antrim. The natural beauty of the area was officially confirmed when it was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is located at the bottom of Glenballyeamon, one of the famous nine Glens of Antrim
Close by are a few historical sites. Just a short walk down the street is the Curfew Tower. The tower which is in the centre of the village was built by Francis Turnley in 1817, to confine riotous prisoners. Dan Mc Bride, an army pensioner was given the job of permanent garrison and was armed with one musket, a bayonet, a brace of pistols and a 13 ft long pike.
Just of the main Cushendall / Ballymoney Road is Ossian’s Grave, a megalithic court cairn on a hillside in Lubitavish near Glenann River. Dating from the Stone Age, it is believed to be the burial place of Ossian, the Celtic Warrior Poet.
Situated on the Coast Road between Cushendall and Cushendun are the ruins of Layde Church, one of the oldest and most important historical sites in the glens. Often referred to as a Franciscan Monastery, evidence would indicate that it was in fact a Parish Church.
The exact origins of the site are unknown but it probably began life as a holy place in the Iron Age or before. It was in ruins in 1622 but was rebuilt about 1696 and remained the site of Protestant worship until the 1800’s.
