We drove this route the day after Storm Ali caused havoc. Callm and sunny. Great road, fantastic views and well signposted. Many places to see and pllaces to turn off for a great cup of tea or just to enjoy the splendour of nature.

This is the longer way to get around in Northern Ireland, but so worthwhile! There are plenty of pull-offs to just get out of your car and stand in stunned silence. We drove along the whole coastal road north of Belfast, around the Giant's Causeway,...More

The scenery on the coast road is fantastic, but it's only good if you don't have to hurry. The ocean views are tremendous. Follow the signs, don't panic if you take wrong turn. If you are completely lost, ask a local for advice.

The giant's causeway is definitely a must-visit. The views are incredible and breath-taking. Be careful of slippery rocks during rains and near the coastline.

We spent two weeks in County Antrim, during which we drove the entire Causeway Coastal road. If one takes time to find and stop at the limited parking and scenic overlooks one is rewarded with spectacular views, every bit as beautiful as the west coast...More
