Magical!

We were really lucky, due to the weather the road was really empty! Great op for photos, and the thunder and lightening mad it even more atmospheric!

Popped along for a flying visit, quite a few people had the same idea even though the weather and light was wet/dull. If you go, park at the end of the road or the view is spoilt by all the cars. Weird thing about this place, if you take an image at opposite ends of the road, it looks COMPLETELY... More

It is a nice and cozy place. But in my opinion it does not deserve expressly to visit him move unless you're a big fan of the series Game of Thrones or you stay close. The great influx of people who visit, do not enjoy the scenery unless you arrive early. I suppose it's a fad.

The nice thing about the Antrim coast is the close proximity of several great sites, all of which can be combined in a whirlwind, if busy, day of sightseeing. The Dark Hedges aren't exactly on the way to anywhere, but they are a quick detour from he coastal areas where you will probably be exploring other more popular attractions. We... More

Just a mass of badly guided tourist blocking the road and coaches .tour company don't seem to tell visitors this is still a public road for locals to use. Bad need of management common courtesy or entrepreneurial gumpsion to maintain accomadate traffic.

Let there be no mistake - this is just a road with awesome trees. Cars are driving it, although we were there for maybe 15-20 minutes and only 1 car went through. There isn't a tourism shop or anyone to give you information. If we hadn't spoken with the owners of our B&B, we wouldn't have found it. If you... More

Snap a few photos, but other than that there isn't anything to do. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the walk. Except there were a few cars that sped through really Rudely.

Amazing views down the avenue of beach trees that have naturally intertwined over the road. Make sure you go early and avoid idiots in luminous pink that take a picture of every tree 🙈
