Beautiful, interesting, changing scenery, moving north from Belfast, mountains one side, rugged coast line another, culminating in Led Zep's album cover, "Houses of the Holy" at The Giant's Causeway. The whole journey up was magical - I gather it's also dotted with locations from Game of Thrones. I want to return a ride this on a bicycle. That would be... More

We loved the drive along the coast - starting at the Giant's Causeway visitor centre and following the beautiful coast back towards belfast.

The Antrim Coast Road runs from Larne to Portrush but it is more than a road - it's a gem. It is by far Northern Ireland's most scenic road and boasts many places of interest along the way. Be brave and drive the roller coaster ride that is the section between Cushendun and Ballycastle via Torr Head. This road is... More

I have driven this route from Belfast twice. Once in August 2012 and again in December 2014. It is so beautiful you have to see it for yourself. Both trips were a 1 day trip but I would recommend a 2 day trip staying somewhere around the Causeway area and then proceed onto Derry, if possible. Weather depends on where... More

easy to follow brown signage along the route and it's extra loops, excellent villages, harbours, pubs and food for stopping and enjoying the local scenery

Our Northern Ireland excursion in September 2013 took us along the Coast Road from Larne in eastern Antrim all the way around to the the Giant's Causeway in the north at Bushmills. The weather remained beautiful for nearly the entire drive, which only enhanced the beauty of the natural environment, adding much to the enjoyment and thrill of the experience.... More

How? take a trip along the beautiful Antrim Coast. Start in the lovely town of Ballycastle and head for Portrush. Take your time and wonder at the jaw dropping sights around almost every corner. Giants Causeway, Carrick-A-Rede robe bridge and Bushmills Distillery, although amazing and truely well worth a visit are only some of the natural wonders available all along... More

The Causeway Coastal Route is rated as one of the Top Five Road Trips worldwide and when you drive it, you’ll see why. England, Scotland and Wales have the occasional stretch of beautiful cost road - but the 'star prize' has to go N.Ireland's Antrim Coast. It’s already designated as an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" (AONBs). Stating from Belfast,... More

Absolutely amazing scenery, but I missed many photo opportunities. I was on a shore excursion from a Princess cruise. There were almost no photo stops along the way, which was very disappointing and I was on the left hand side (landward side) of the coach. Once I realised, I consoled myself with the thought that we would return to Belfast... More
