Overview
More
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 recommend driving the Causeway Coastal Route as the scenery is fabulous with surprises around every corner - and I don’t mean mad drivers who cut corners whilst speeding and taking up most of the road!

Expect to take longer than you gps says as you will be travelling at a slower pace with frequent stops along this route.

Every place is gorgeous. Beautiful drive, it is a wow in every turn. Beaches, cliffs, castles, villages, every place is beautiful. Highly recommend it. More beautiful even than Big Sur drive in California. We stayed in Bushmills which is a great base to explore from.

Drove along this route from Carnlough to the Giants Causeway. Lovely winding roads through picturesquely villages with stunning views out to see.

This is a rugged and beautiful coastline. There are several attractions like the Giant’s Causeway and the Carrick a-Rede bridge. There are also many good pubs and restaurants along the way. Very Highly Recommended.

I think 5 days would be ideal to take in these sights without feeling rushed! Time to soak up the beautiful countryside and enjoy the warmth of the locals! Have a great trip!
