The Causeway Coastal Route is a designated scenic tourist drive around the coast of Northern Ireland between the cities of Belfast and Londonderry. 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.

This was the day it finally felt real. That I was finally in Ireland. We traveled from Ballymoney then on to Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge, Giant's Causeway and last to Dunluce Castle. It is an absolutely beautiful drive.

We were very lucky to have beautiful weather so that we were able to see right out to sea and what a view! From start to finish, an amazing experience. Stop off at the little craft/art shops on the way too - we picked up some super pieces.

Traveled the Coastal route and it was incredible. Fabulous views at every turn with many towns and pull offs for picture opportunities.

Each turn of the road opens up a new perspective on this rugged and attractive coast. There are plentiful places to pull over to admire the view or to park up for a longer break. Attractive little harbours all along the way repay short diversions off the main coastal route

Words hardly adequate to describe the Causeway and the Antrim coast. Too long an absence brought a short visit but we will be back some time soon.

We drove along the route from the Giants Causeway to the Republic of Ireland and enjoyed the drive immensely. There are several places to stop along the way and you will want to stop and take pictures often. There are several places to stop and eat or get gas or refreshments along the way.
