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.

A fantastic drive. Really enjoyed it and parts took my breath away. Lots of great little stop off points and plenty of little towns with friendly owners. Loved every minute

We drove from Bushmills to Ballygally stopping off to visit the Giants Causeway and Carrick a rede rope bridge, plus quick stop in Ballycastle. This must be one of the most scenic and stunning coast roads I’ve ever driven, plus the roads are quiet. Great...More
