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

...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.....

we were very lucky in that for our Antrim coastal tour the weather was outstanding,the sky was deep blue and the temperature was in the 70's with a cooling breeze to make it just perfect. the first stop was Carrickfergus Castle for a photo opportunity,a chance to pose at the statue of "king Billy" or under the walls of the...
