...for any travellers to NI. There's a new and stunning sight around each bend, as well as the local wildlife (cows, goats and sheep) on the hills along the way. Just an idyllic addition to your trip to County Antrim. Photos can't do it justice. You have to see it in person.

City & Causway tour. FANTASTIC! I read all the reviews and I encourage you to read them also. They were accurate but my experience felt so much more personal. It's like your friend Alister. Without yet discussing the tour, I feel that I want him to come to the house for a beer. He shortly becomes that kind of friend.... More

The coast road is just beautiful. It really needs to be explored by car over a couple of days so you can stop everywhere you want to. Big wide beaches, cliffs, the giants causeway of course. Brilliant!

Include this drive in your itinerary - well worth the time. The views are wonderful! Road is two lane, usually with shoulders, and except for a couple of rock tunnels is standard width. Quaint little towns along the way really help you feel you are in Ireland. We went at a fairly leisurely pace and arrived at the Giant's causeway... More

We have been fortunate to travel quite often, we have been to Ireland 12 times, but never ventured this far north. I am glad we did, the weather was brilliant and the scenery through the coast matched...around every corner, green hills of Antrim, coastline, small villages....just incredible. I would put this drive up with the best.....

What can I say--it is beautiful! If you are in Ireland--do not miss driving the coast. We had rain in the morning, but then in the afternoon, we had the most amazing rainbow I have ever seen in my life. It was fantastic and should not be missed!

Ballintoy – where myth and legend take over from reality. The salt tang of the ocean drifted in on the gentlest of breezes through the tiny open sash window. A warm wind that carried scents of new-mown hay from the meadow outside the window. The distant bleat of lambs from the upper pasture punctuated by the sharp call of the... More

If you're in Ireland it's worth a trip to Antrim Coast. It's best to start around Belfast and rent a car. Car rental was about $300 (CAD) for two days and another $70 (CAD) for gas. But it was so worth it. You can see the entire coast and do activities like Giant's Causeway, the rope bridge and see all... More
