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 views from the roadway are spectacular. Give yourself enough time to travel the road AND stop at lookout areas, as there are some incredible photo opportunities.

Drive is exciting and the coastal way is all shiny. On a sunny day you wouldn't regret. But please be careful while you drive on a bad weather day as the roads are too curvy and small.

Brilliant in every way. The scenery was magnificent. Weather could have been better though and you need tone aware of the strong winds.

Always wanted to go here. Imagined it to cover a larger area! But spectacular all the same. Would recommend walking down to site, about twenty minutes of so, but unless you are fit or aiming to get fit, get shuttle bus back up! £1 Note - You can not walk into site for free through the tunnel if you have...

The coastal causeway has amazing scenery at every turn and is well worth the drive. If you venture off the highway and go inland for some of it there is some beautiful country scenery as well.

Worth taking this if you've got the time - we drove the section from Larne to Bushmills. It's not the most direct route but there are great views along the way - sea, forests and glens. Not as easy to enjoy the sights when you're the driver!

The quaint little towns and beautiful bays are well worth visiting on a drive from Belfast up to the Giant's Causeway. The road is easy to drive and the small towns all have tea rooms where you can stop for refreshments.

I have to say that I travelled this way to go to Giants Causeway but was blown away by the beauty of the coastline which is magnificent. Every twist and turn leads to another dramatic view. Take time to enjoy and stop along the way. Luckily the weather was clear when we visited which obviously makes a difference!

The roads are in great condition--they are just crazy narrow in some spots and the buses (coaches) are a bit bigger than the half of the roadway they have been given. With high curbs, stone walls, limited visibility around curves, bicyclists, walkers, and randomly parked cars(!) driving this route makes for its own adventure. I would highly recommend going slower... More
