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

Do take the public bus right from Portrush ..easy and inexpensive way to see the Causeway. You can stop at the Castle and Distillery if you want on the way. Be careful of return times though! Buy the ticker with the driver and they are very helpful with schedule info. Do the big hike ( it is not difficult or... More

In September there was an amazing lack of traffic! A very well signposted route, a variety of landscapes, plenty of places to pull in and admire the views. So many walks and beaches and NT areas to explore. Take your time and enjoy.

We took this road early morning so it was less crowded. We had the road mostly to ourselves and surprisingly we had a pod of dolphins keeping us company all the journey across the coastal route.

We spent a great deal of time on the Wild Atlantic Way. The views are jaw dropping and worth the slow pace.

Go round the coast (on a bike) and your mind will be blown with the sights of the magnificent north coast. If you include the Inishowen 100, then there is up to 250 miles of coastal cycling and there is no place in the world that can compete with its natural beauty. Of course there is a down side.

Superb coastline for views and attractions. Make sure that you visit the rope bridge but try to do it early or late in the day or out of season because it is very popular.

Just north of Belfast we hoped on the coastal route and were not disappointed. You could spend many extra hours stopping at the sites along the way. Beauty in every direction you look. As the review subject says....if you have the time, take this route - you won't be disappointed!

From Belfast vis Larne to Bushmills, this is a worthwhile drive of about 3 hours. The views of the Irish Sea and the rural settings are spectacular.

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
