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.

Pictures do not come close to showing the true perfection along this route. Great places to stop and see, and just relax.

Great views, but the whole route got tiring to drive with the narrow roads as well as not being used to driving on the left.

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.
