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.

You need a good day for this as I have also done it when the mists suddenly came down and you could see nothing. It is worth getting on etc road early when the weather is probably best. Some hairy bends in the road but...More

Hesitant to review as the beauty of this walk is outstanding and yet relatively untouched- hope it stays this way! One of the most diverse, beautiful 16 k hikes I've ever done. However, as this is touted as a one day hike I'd be remiss...More

Spectacular views, stunning scenery and lots of stuff to do. The Antrim coast from Belfast round to Bushmills is a magical journey; particularly if the weather behaves itself. The route offers views all the way and is worth taking your time over. There are some...More

A must for any visit to Northern Ireland as seen on the One Show. Make sure to have your camera ready to record this beautiful scenery.

As we were on holiday we followed the coastal route to the Giant's Causeway. The views are beautiful. It was sunny and dry the day we went so we could see for miles.

If you ever get the opportunity this is a great experience. From the coastal views of cliffs, beaches, a castle, Giant's Causeway and rope bridge, to sheep and cattle farms to the dark hedges you will be overwhelmed by scenic greenery and beauty.

The Giant's Causeway is a natural phenomenon which you should have seen. Now the GC is part of the National trust, which means that members can visit it for free, but the others have to pay an entrance fee (which also gives acces to the...More

Loved Carrickfergus and Cushendall. Handy parking and viewing areas all along the route. Attractions we'll signed. Started in Belfast to Derry over 3 days. Should have took a bit longer perhaps to really see it.
