This drive is along a beautiful coastline and at one point passes the Giant's Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are stunning beaches along this coast, which I never expected to see. This is a must, whether it be on an organized tour, or by driving independently. There are also some castle ruins to see along the drive.

Please, Please, Please.... get a car and drive this. In the other lane I must advise! It is a great trip and you can spend half day or two days driving it. If you are close, don't miss it. We had a couple of tour buses in the beginning, some even passed us on the narrow way, but we got... More

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

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
