Needed to travel on this road to get into Maghera, it is a very beautiful road with good scenery. Picnic spots are easily located on this road. The road is perfect for the slow drive when you are taking your time. Would travel on again.

Ireland has a number of roads through spectacular scenery. In any other country this road would be a motorway given that it links the two largest cities in Northern Ireland. It can get very busy so the best time to enjoy is outside the rush...More
