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.

“awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

A really lovely drive north from Belfast up to the giant's causeway. plenty of places to stop on the way and make sure you do so because the viewpoints give the driver a chance to soak in the beauty of the area.

“You have to drive this Route!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

You can't miss this drive!!! There are lot's of places to stop and pull over and just relish in the beauty of the landscape. Drive along the cliffs of Northern Ireland but make sure you watch out for the sheep that are free roaming! This is one of the most beautiful roads you will ever be on in your life.

“Bus tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We went on a bus tour with a very knowledgable guide who at one point showed us we could see Southern Ireland and Scotland Go but take a travel guide to show you what to look for ie the rope bridge

“Spectacular...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Weather permitting this has to be one of the most scenic drives anywhere. However, don't just drive along the main route, but take a detour now and then down one of the many small roads to Portbraddan, Whitepark, Ballintoy, Carrick-a-rede just to name a few. Well worth it...

“One of the most beautiful drives EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I was on an escorted bus tour of Ireland that went around the entire country. While all of Ireland is beautiful, the coast road between Derry and Belfast was absolutely breathtaking!! I can honestly say I felt like I died and went to Heaven!! It was a 3 hour drive that I wished would never end, and luckily we had a billiant sunny day with the most spectacular clear blue sky. I can't wait to return to Ireland and will most definitely drive along that route again!!
