The Causeway Coastal Route is a designated scenic tourist drive around the coast of Northern Ireland between the cities of Belfast and Londonderry. The route follows the coast and takes you to several major tourist attractions along the way including The Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Dunluce Castle, The Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery and the Glens of Antrim. There are also nine scenic loop roads that run off the main Coastal Route. These are: Islandmagee, Slemish Mountain, Glenariff, Glendun, Torr Road, Glenshesk, Bann Valley, Binevenagh Mountain and the Roe Vally. One of these (Torr Scenic Road)is quite narrow so do be careful if your not used to our small roads, one tip is to pull in your wing mirrors on the Torr Road.

We drove the scenic Antrim Coastal route in October and were enthralled by its wild beauty, fabulous views, steep cliffs green right to the very edge, pounding surf. Memorable stops in the area included the Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle, and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (not...More

This drive is spectacular, with surprises and each place unique. Take time to walk (or ride) to the sites that are not accessible by road, and enjoy!

The drive from Ballycastle to Portrush was a very pleasant drive. We took time to stop at some view points. The road was in good condition, traffic was not too heavy.

Great roads and beautiful scenery. Some lovely places to stop on the way to the causeway. Spent two days on the causeway route enjoyed every minute.

You can walk for miles and barely see anyone - in October anyway! The drive is also stunning. Ballintoy Harbour and the cafe on the harbour itself was a real highpoint

Some great scenery and the odd Game of Thrones set location (iron islands). Be prepared for a long drive and getting stuck behind a touring bus!

We hired a car and drove this route ourselves. Amazing views of the seaside and cliffs. Seemed to always be saying "wow look at that!!!" Definitely do this route if you are thinking about it
