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.

Great drive on a sunny day, with pull ins at various superb viewpoints. Dunluce Castle is a good stop if you like ruins.

Walked the 20 or so miles between Portrush and the "Rope-bridge" with Giants Causeway around the halfway point. The terrain was mixed between seafront, beach, rocks, fields, clifftops and roads. The weather had us clinging to each other and nearly down on all fours on...More

We had already decided to stop off and see The Giant's Causeway on our return to Belfast from Inishowen this year. We also thought it would be nice to try and follow the coastline as I've heard from train passengers that it is lovely. We...More

Gorgeous scenery and pleasant drive. We drove on a Saturday morning and didn't really meet up with a lot of traffic. Be sure you have at least half a tank of gas, as there aren't a lot of opportunities to fill up along the way....More

I drove the whole thing. Words can't describe the scenic beauty. An epic road trip that I merged with the Antrim and Mourne coastal routes. Rent a car (if you're brave enough, most people I know from the States aren't) and DRIVE. Forget the bus...More
