The route follows the coast and takes you to several major tourist attractions along the way including The Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Dunluce Castle, The Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery and the Glens of Antrim. There are also nine scenic loop roads that run off the main Coastal Route. These are: Islandmagee, Slemish Mountain, Glenariff, Glendun, Torr Road, Glenshesk, Bann Valley, Binevenagh Mountain and the Roe Vally. One of these (Torr Scenic Road)is quite narrow so do be careful if your not used to our small roads, one tip is to pull in your wing mirrors on the Torr Road. « less

The Causeway Coastal Route of Northern Ireland's northeastern coast is a drive that deserves a thorough exploration and though, the travel magazine photos are attention grabbing, this drive must be experienced in person to complete any trip to this magical isle!

This coast road is magnificent the whole way from Portstewart to Belfast and must rate as one of the great coastal road journeys in the world

Fantastic breathtaking views around very corner. Drove from Larne right along the causeway coastline as far as Portstewart stopping at every little village along the way each one prettier than the next, amazing beaches, great stop off points, just stunningly beautiful.

Very scenic, with lots of photo opportunities. If only people would use appropriate stopping places for taking photos.

We hit Belfast in the rain, picked up our rental car at the airport (Belfast City) and headed out. We took the more direct route to Larne and then got onto the Causeway Scenic route easily. Quite a bit of our drive was in light rain so I bagged my initial plan of stopping in the forest along the way... More

A great drive plenty to see lots of picture stops on a nice day will be great! On a damp wet day still looks good but not the best!

Stunning scenery even on a damp and misty day. Make sure to stop off and enjoy the many attractions along the way.
