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

One of the best things I have done in mylife. Superb driving experience with one side mountains and other side sea. Please make your time to visit NI and drive along the coastal route. You wont regret it :))

The coastal route has different scenery at every turn, from hillsides filled with sheep, to small towns with charming pubs and shops, you'll enjoy every turn.

This road is one of our best assets. On a sunny day it's just spectacular. Start in Larne, stop in Glenarm castle tea room for refreshment, then just stick with the coast right up. When you see a sign to the right for torr head, take it. The road is narrow but well worth it, torr head itself is worth... More

If you're heading up to the Giant's Causeway from the Dublin/Belfast direction and have a little more time, resist the M2/A26 direct route and drive round the A2 from Larne instead. It is well worth the time passing by beautiful views of the sea and enjoying driving down the winding coastal road. Look out for the white rock polar bear!

Enjoyed a tour round this area immensely. The site was well signposted and dog friendly. Don;t forget to pop into the Bushmills distillery for some post walk fortification

If you are heading up towards the Giant's Causeway, I would definitely recommend taking this route. It may take you a bit longer but it is definitely worth the added time. There is such lovely views on the coastal route.

You cannot visit Belfast and not go to the Giants Causeway! A must see. Beautiful scenery and the fascinating fable of Finn McCool the Irish giant who defeated the Scottish giant. The only down side was the weather, we got soaked but still so glad we went.

A fantastic hiking trail, cliff tops unguarded so you take responsibility, I like that! Even better is the free parking in numerous places all the way along the route and clean, free washrooms too. This is so different to the Republic of Ireland where there is virtually no parking and certainly no access to cliff top coastal hiking. Good free... More
