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

We drove from Belfast to Portstewart, stopping at Giant's causeway and Portrush. The scenery is spectacular!! Loved the little towns that really made you feel you were in Ireland. The road is two lane, most of the way has shoulders. Worth adjusting your schedule to make this drive...

Best part is that the route is very well sign posted, so easy to follow. The scenery is spectacular, you also pass through a number of quaint towns. Need to allow a full day for the trip, excluding the time needed for Giants causeway and rope bridge as both those attractions can take a few hours each.

The drive along this route is amazing. The cliff views are beautiful. The hairpin turns can be a bit frightening though.

The Wild Atlantic Way is a very scenic drive. We started in Galway and went all the way up the coast into Northern Ireland and back to Dublin. We had 3 weeks so we weren't in a hurry. Good thing, as it is a slow go. The Causeway route is part of the wild Atlantic Way. Want a scenic drive... More

My daughter and I were lucky enough to travel last week in glorious weather from Larne up to Portrush. I've been lucky enough to drive up the California coast and around the Corfu coast and this journey was every bit as good !!! Would recommend it to anyone.

one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. Beautiful white sandy beaches, pretty villages that have little teahouses and the rugged Atlantic Ocean
