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

Loved this route, stunning views and well sign-posted. We drove to Londonderry, Portstewart and Portrush and the views were just amazing.

If you are going to the Giants Causeway you've got to follow this route it is truly spectacular! The coastline is beautiful.

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

Day tripping from Belfast is very possible. Although I was disappointed with the Giant's Causeway I have to say the Coastal Route gives one a real sense of how beautiful the country of Northern Ireland is. Farms lined with hedges and quaint villages takes your breath away.

Nice views and a lot of attractions. Pity the weather was not the best when we visited. I think if the sun was out, we would've enjoyed this a lot more. Lots to stop and do and see on this road.

This is the road that jumps on and off the coastline of Northern Ireland, The sea and sky meet for the hills to light up. Photos at every turn.

Its just awesome - to see these basalt columns streching out into the Atlantic. The folklore is incredible too - you've got to take the Audio Tour at National Trust, Giant's Causeway!

Great place to visit. Need to give yourself at least 2 hours to do it any justice. Huge visitors centre. It is a National Trust property. there is a fee for entrance.
