Highly recommended trail! Gorgeous views and well marked route. We ran/walked from Ballintoy to Giant’s Causeway - around 16km and took a bus back to Ballintoy. We will be back to walk this again.

I’m currently studying in Belfast and was told by a friend who lives in the area to do this road. I was certainly not disappointed. Plenty of pretty sights and towns along the way, but the road is certainly an attraction in itself. The views you get on this road are probably some of the most beautiful anywhere. Not even the weather could put an dampener on an amazing journey!

There is so much to see packed into a few miles of the Causeway Coast. Starting at Fair Head, with its great views over the Sea of Moyle to Rathlin Island, you return to Ballycastle and drive westwards to the ruins of Kinbane Castle. Soon you will arrive at the picturesque village of Ballintoy and it's harbour that will be recognised by Game of Thrones' fans. From here you can visit the world famous Carrick-a-rede rope bridge if the weather is calm. Benbane Head can be seen in the distance but before that lies the majestic strand of Whitepark Bay. From the viewing point high above you can take in one of the greatest sights along the coast. On a clear day the coast of Scotland is visible. Around Benbane headland lies the incredible Giant's Causeway which should be the object of at least a full day visit. Entry to the National Trust exhibition centre comes at a cost but travelling to the stones is free. After taking in the causeway the small town of Bushmills is next where you will find the World's oldest licenced distillery. This is a must visit to learn about how whiskey is made and you should lay aside a half day to take it all in. Leaving Bushmills the road leads to Portrush, passing Dunluce Castle and Whiterocks strand. Golfing fans may want to play the Royal Portrush course which hosted the 2019 Open Championship. The towns of Portrush and Portstewart are connected by a road that skirts the edge of the coastline, and here you will find part of the course for the annual North West 200 motor bike races. Now travelling away from the coast to Coleraine in order to cross the Lower Bann river you can reach the coast again at Downhill. Here there is an enormous beach leading to the mouth of Lough Foyle at Magilligan. This marks the end of the Causeway Coast. There is so much packed into a fairly short length of coast but there are magnificent viewing points, pretty villages, magestic beaches, ruins of castles, great sea fishing, lovely hotels and restaurants and simply the best hospitality you will find anywhere. Why not give it a go?

I travelled around the Antrim coast for a few days with family members in Sept 2020. We rented a house for a few days online which was in Bushmills Town. The coastal route is absolutely beautiful. Incredible scenery. Our rented house in Bushmill was lovely and the owner had ensured it was spotless with all covid requirements in place. She was informative and friendly. Bushmills sadly did not appear friendly. Had I been aware of the Union Jack and Hands of Ulster flags hanging from every lamp post. Yes..every lamp post, I would have chosen another location. I was born in Belfast. I now live in London. I have no issue with any religion or any flag hanging but the quantity and volume of flags was a political statement. It saddened me that this community still feels the need to show division with such force. I can imagine they alienate a large number of more savvy visitors. In an area of outstanding beauty it was sadly a blight on a pretty town with im sure amazing residents. I will return to the Antrim Coastal Route and surrounding areas in a heartbeat as it is breathtaking but sadly would not stay in Bushmills again.
