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 is a not to be missed way of seeing some of the most gorgeous views of Northern Ireland. Plenty of scenic and interesting places to stop.

Take the ride you won't be disappointed. We even went on a day that had rain to start, that cleared and came back a few times. It didn't matter the Sky just added more beauty to the ride. Not a lot of traffic even though it was busy everywhere we went. By busy I mean people were there. Nothing like... More

I have done this drive several times. There is some breathtaking scenery. I would particularly recommend going to Torr Head via the wonderfully bendy, narrow, and undulating roads. A visit to the beautiful harbour of Ballintoy is also a must, partly so that you can see a most peculiar 'folly' of a house on the way down!

If you are in the area and the weather is nice, this is a nice drive I think almost as comparable to the Dingle peninsula (Slea Head), with pull outs and what seem like short drives off the main road. I wished I did a bit more research of places to stop, besides the main tourist attractions. We drove up... More

Breathtaking views of the coast and on a good day you can see Scotland. Well worth the drive from larne to portrush.

The road hugs the coast from Belfast up to Derry/Londonderry with some breathtaking views along the way. The scenery is typical of much of the Irish coastline, with great vistas around most bends. Spare a thought for the driver.....he/she has to keep their eyes firmly on the road while the passengers enjoy the beautiful land and seascapes !

A wonderful drive up the coast, be sure to keep your eyes open as you travel through the "arch" , look for fun side trips like "carnfunnick family play park" complete with a miniature railroad ride. Have lunch at Ballygally castle about halfway, brave a trip across the Carrie-a-reed rope bridge if you dare, but make sure you finish the... More

Fantastic views. There are at least dozen excellent places to stop and see beautiful coastal lookouts and castles and even tree formations. Several small towns that you can stop and get a feel for small-town Ireland
