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 recently drove the whole coast road. We stayed in Bushmills and drove the cost down to Larne, and then to Belfast. It snowed on an off the entire day. Made for beautiful scenery, stopped Ballycastle for lunch.

Almost enough to bring one to tears. It is naturally divine and I would camp under the stars to wake up to the beautiful landscape.

A just stunning drive along the coast. We went on a clear winter's day and could see for miles. Trick your partner into driving or go by coach!

Would recommend the route as there were lots of stops and interesting sites along the way. Traveling was easy and there were lots of places to stop and stretch your legs. Lots of photo stops!

Worth the extra mileage and time. Unbelievable sights - just so untouched. Beautiful smooth roads that are barely used.

I rented a car and drive the length of the coastline from Derry to Belfast. This section of the coast in particular was stunning, and I found myself stopping time and again to take in the views and breathe the sea air.

Great drive surprisingly few cars just a peaceful drive with fantastic views. Makes learning to drive on the opposite side of the road well worth it.

We started at Bushmills and headed to the Giants Causeway and the Carrick a Reid rope bridge. Beautiful coastal drive with gorgeous scenery on a lovely cold sunny day. Take in the villages of Cushendun and Cushendall on the way.

Just the most wonderful drive full of jaw dropping sights. The incredible wild coastline with waves crashing off the cliffs added to the amazing Giants Causeway itself with its amazing, mysterious hexagonal columns is just magical. We intended in doing quite a few things on...More
