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.

I would truly recommend a drive along the coast. It’s everything you imagine that the coast is supposed to be. It’s dreamlike. I couldn’t have been more impressed and I couldn’t have expected more. This coast is perfect.

I would recommend being a passenger on this route so you can take in the sights. There are a lot of places to stop on the way so give yourself lots of time.

Whether you only have a day, or several days, like us this is a must do driving route. The scenic beauty to be found all the way along Te route is simply outstanding. Too many highlights to describe herein. Just do it.

One of the best coastal route to drive!. Use the road map provided by "Discover Norther Ireland", and dont miss any places listed. Allow plenty of time for enjoying the drive - dont stop with drive, visit all the places
