This beach hopping home movie invites you to traverse Ireland’s north coast with the Carrey family. Share in their joy as the family play to the camera, skipping with seaweed and clambering over rocks. From the sandy beach at Waterfoot to a windy stop in Donegal, every place is a chance to entertain each other. As the film ends take a last look at Larne and wave farewell for another year as the ferry takes the family back to Stranraer.
