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.

Really beautiful road, very windy with fabulous views down the coast to cliffs and beaches. I was there on a Sunday though so lots of cars. It's very nice though and worth a look for sure. It's great on a motorbike !

During our visit to Northern Ireland we drove the whole Causeway Coast Route. So beautiful with many stunning photo opportunities. We also walked a good few miles of the Causeway Coast Path which was also amazing.

The Insight Tour took us from Giants Causeway to our hotel in Ballygally via The Causeway Coastal road. Very scenic and we got to see the Dark Hedges (Game of Thrones)

A lovely lovely route to drive with not much traffic (we only saw a handful of cars all drive), and you get to see some lovely scenery and interesting places from Glenarm to Ballycastle to Bushmills. Spend a day driving and stopping off at many wonderful places - the caves at Cushenden, Cairnlough harbour, Carrickfurgus castle, Glenarrif forest park, Torr... More

Beautiful drive along this stunning coast line, adds a few minutes to you journey but well worth it. Beautiful little fishing village 40km in , great chance to take some vintage looking photos.

The Causeway Coastal Route provides the traveler with beautiful scenery. We travelled on a less than perfect day weather-wise and still enjoyed the views.
