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 coastal route by itself is amazing. Climbing the side of the giants causeway, down the great set of stairs to the end of the trail was tough but fun. One of my favorite parts is northern Ireland!

We spent a full day driving just from Larne to Giants Causeway, and stopped frequently at scenic viewpoints en route. We wished we had more time to stop in little towns along the way, they were so pretty. If you're doing a round trip from Belfast to Bushmills and back, take the higher speed highway and motorway on the return... More

This is a must!!! If you are in the area PLEASE take at least a day to do this route! It can be done in a day, but I really wish we would have taken two days so we could take our time in the cute villages we went through. There is so much to see and explore. We loved... More

If you have the time and are in the area, this is a must. The views are breathtaking and the historical stops along the way, as well as the neat towns, can easily make this a worthwhile all-day affair.

We were in a small tour bus. We had left Dublin very early in the morning and I was too sleepy to really appreciate all of the trip. What I did see was beautiful.

Awesome Scenic Route. Our bus driver took us this way on the way back from the Causeway and there was a lot to see on this route.

This route with its beaches and stunning scenery is well worth a drive especially if the weather is fine and warm. We were lucky enough to go on a day when you could see Scotland clearly.
