Owner description: 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.

Nice views after every next corner made us stop time after time to make some more pictures and just enjoy this area. Driving in the snow made us go slow and gave us enough time to see so many beautiful places. Would love to go here again in summer as the scenes must be completely different from what we have...

Take time to enjoy the scenery. Views were spectacular. A very memorable drive. Take time to enjoy the smaller towns you pass through - so much to explore

There is so much to see along this route...ruined castles, the Giant's Causeway, the rope bridge, Scotland across the water. We took several days to explore it all.

This is a great drive. The scenery is very beautiful. Make sure you drive this route and make the stops at the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge, Giants Causeway and the Musseden Temple, etc. You will get some great photos. The road is a bit narrow so drive carefully.

My only regret about this drive is that we didn't take more time to enjoy all it has to offer. We stuck to the coastline and stopped at most of the pulloff sites between Belfast and Bushmills all within one day. I can see why some recommend taking multiple days to explore all of the spurs off the route.

Exceptionallybeautiful scenery! The Causeway and Glens is an exceptional experience if you are a nature lover. There are a number of bnb's on the way. Try staying on a working farm. It allows you to learn more about the culture of Ireland. Carrick A Rede, a rope bridge experience, is set in a beautiful surrounding. Make sure that you pack... More

I am lucky that my partner lives very near to a section of the coastal route. We didn't manage to travel it all, however, we went as far as Derry, and down to Belfast; visiting many places along the way such as The Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-rede rope bridge, Cushendun Caves, Island McGee and Whitehead Bay... As said in the title,... More

Easy to follow the sign posts. The mountain and coastal scenery is as good as I have ever seen. Beautiful.

I liked the fact that it was unspoiled by consumerism. Also a bus was available every few minutes to take anyone who didn't or couldn't walk.
