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 route was recommended by a friend and it's worth having a tootle if your a motorcyclist 😁 It's starts shortly after leaving Belfast but the best part really starts after you leave Larne. If your getting the ferry I would advise docking at Larne and not Belfast as the route between the two is pretty mundane. Once out of... More

Every year we come over for the road racing and travel from our overnight stay off the ferry in Skerries just north of Dublin, up to Bushmills our base for the week.Every year we do this by following the coast round. It takes hours and doubles the journey - but it's so worth it. Ireland has some of the best... More

Lots to see on this spectacular coastal drive. Take a guide book and read about the history of the area as you explore. Also take a waterproof coat, a scarf and beanie, your camera and some hiking boots.

Suggest you drive this either early morning or, as we did, late afternoon-evening. It was a real pleasure to drive.

Nothing to dislike - we toured most of the area on motorcycles and cannot recommend it highly enough from a riders point of view. Great country roads with lots of places to stop off & enjoy the scenery, culture & eateries.

Drive along the Causeway Coast, through scenery taking in the dramatic glens and coastal cliffs, unspoilt beaches, bays, historic castles, pretty villages and stunning natural wonders like the Giant's Causeway - a wonderful part of Ireland and a definitely "must do"!
