While in Whitehead, you can also visit the rest of The Bank House family - Granny's Closet and Lighthouse Yarns - all housed in our beautifully majestic red brick and sandstone premises, which was a former Bank House. While in the town, you can also visit the famous historical Steam Train Museum, run by The Railway Preservation Society of Ireland. To complete your visit, make sure to visit our beautiful beach and scenic coastal walk, complete with one of the last Lighthouses in Northern Ireland... our scenery is truly stunning, and visiting Whitehead makes for the most wonderful family day trip.
