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

Enjoyed a tour round this area immensely. The site was well signposted and dog friendly. Don;t forget to pop into the Bushmills distillery for some post walk fortification

If you are heading up towards the Giant's Causeway, I would definitely recommend taking this route. It may take you a bit longer but it is definitely worth the added time. There is such lovely views on the coastal route.

You cannot visit Belfast and not go to the Giants Causeway! A must see. Beautiful scenery and the fascinating fable of Finn McCool the Irish giant who defeated the Scottish giant. The only down side was the weather, we got soaked but still so glad we went.

A fantastic hiking trail, cliff tops unguarded so you take responsibility, I like that! Even better is the free parking in numerous places all the way along the route and clean, free washrooms too. This is so different to the Republic of Ireland where there is virtually no parking and certainly no access to cliff top coastal hiking. Good free... More

We did the coastal route on a blissfully sunny yet very cold March day and had an absolutely brilliant time. Lots of places to stop, lots of twisty road and lots of time close to the sea. Highly highly recommended - up there with California route one even if it was a bit colder...

Took wrong turn out of belfast heading towards the giants causeway. Well what should have taking an hour took 2hours and some. Scenery was out of a picture book. So many quaint villages that are untouched by commercialism. Ring of kerry I've driven many times and the coast of Antrim is equally as stunning.

I just love the North Antrim Coast. I cannot understand why so many people travel abroad when we have such beautiful and spectacular places to visit in the UK. If you fly into Derry, don't just head for Donegall take opportunity to discover here first.

I've done Australia's Great Ocean Road, California's Hwy 1, and other beautiful drives. I've also driven extensively through Ireland (Dingle Peninsula, etc ...) This is on par with the best of them. The coastal scenery is dramatic and breathtaking, and I found myself stopping for photos every few minutes.

The Big Sur of the U.K I've travelled a lot, including the drive along Big Sur in California, and it's got nothing on this place! Passing White Rocks beach (worth a stop), Dunluce Castle, Giants Causeway and along the coast, there's plenty to see and places to stop along the way.. Gorgeous no matter what time of year, just as... More
