Owner description: 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.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Words really can't really do the scenery justice , it really brings a tear to your eye and makes you want to come back again and again . Think of all the cliches for " spectacular " and there you have it .
A photographers dream .

“Stunning drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

We drove the whole route from Belfast on a sat morning. There was very little traffic & the views were stunning in many places. It is not a fast road, but why hurry when the views take your breath away in places

“One of the best drives in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is what I imagined when I dreamed of Ireland. Soft green rolling hills, a few sheep, a rough sea and grey clouds giving everything that mystical atmosphere. We are driving on the Causeway Coastal Route between Belfast and Londonderry in Northern Ireland. The meandering road is said to be one of the most scenic ones and we couldn’t agree more. If I could give an award for most beautiful drive this one would definitely be in my top 3 (together with The High Way 1 near Big Sur and the dusty roads in Kashmir).

The views are spectacular and with every curve you see another castle or cute white village – a few houses, a church and a pub. See some pictures here: http://www.fishandfeathers.nl/ireland/giant-causeway-coastal-route-01/

“Top Ten Scenic Route!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Driving the Causeway Coastal Route is like driving the "Oh God" trail. Every corner you turn you say "Oh God" and then pull over to take pictures. Be sure to take the roads closest tot he ocean. They're a a bit more precarious but the sights are stunning!
