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.

Even if you've been traveling all over Ireland, this route takes you through some of the most stunning pieces of scenery you'll see. There are vistas of the ocean a far as the eyes can see and the opposite cliff sides are equally interesting. Drive...More

Not as long or as far as you think, so you can stay in one base. Lovely sweeping motor bike road, although some of the sights were hard going up/down on the bike.

We have been visiting the Causeway Coastal Route for may years but it is never the same, always different as the seasons change. The glens are as spectacular in the summer as they are in the autumn (fall). Take your time, it is not a...More

Drove for seven hours today along the Causeway coast route. Weather was fantastic and the scenery is outstanding. My daughters wanted to do the game of thrones sites and we had a marvellous day out. The only negative was the plethora of loyalist paramilitary flags...More
