Antrim : Michelin's recommendations
Antrim, a linen-spinning centre, was once the county town. Close to Lough Neagh, the city lies on a fine trout river called the Six Mile Water. There is a lakeside golf course on the lake shore and a marina providing boat trips. The town was razed by General Monro in 1649 and resisted the attack of a force of 3 500 United Irishmen led by Henry Joy McCracken, a Belfast cotton manufacturer, during the 1798 Rebellion.
