Knockagh Monument is a large war memorial in County Antrim which is located on the top of Knockagh Hill and offers amazing views of the landscape below. Visitors can see out to Carrickfergus, Jordanstown, Monkstown, Whiteabbey – lots of Monkstown and into Belfast. You can also see in the distance the shores of Holywood and further. Its a great spot for watching the ships come in and out of Belfast Harbour.

The site of Knockagh monument is 390 meters above sea level and it is considered the largest war memorial in Northern Ireland. So definitely a reason why this should always be on the list of places to visit in Antrim. This monument is 110-foot high basalt obelisk and is a replica of the Wellington Monument in Phoenix Park  Dublin. Although it’s almost half the height.
