Climbing Carnmoney Hill, County Antrim

Updated On: June 19, 2018

Carnmoney Hill in County Antrim, Ireland, is a green oasis in an urban area that mixes between both, history and wildlife. Carnmoney is the name of the townland, electoral ward, and a civil parish in county Antrim. The urban area which it is located in is called Newtownabby and it is 7 miles away from the center of Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Carnmoney Hill rises 232 meters above Newtownabbey which means that it could be seen from County Down, Belfast Lough, and some motorways in Belfast. The eastern side of the hill is mainly covered by ancient woodland with semi-natural grasslands and other habitats interspersed and the top of the hill has a volcanic tap yet the slopes are mainly of limestone and flint, joining mudstones at the coastel belt below.
