This coast is perhaps the most stunning in the UK. It's like looking at a Microsoft screen saver every time you get out of the car. Truly glorious, whatever the weather

The drive on the Causeway coastal route has some of the most wonderful views to be had in Ireland. Do take in all the beaches and castles. And don't miss all the off road sites that are around every corner.

Rent a car and drive the country side in Ireland! If you don’t you will regret it. Such beauty! Remember they drive on the right but keep left! Takes a bit of getting use to! Road can get narrow but take it slow. Loved it...More

Stunning views, dramatic scenery, changing landscape. Plenty of lovely little villages and harbours dotted along the coastline with lots of stopping places for scenic views and photo opportunity. Comfortable driving, well maintained and signposted throughout. NO roadworks, no hold ups, how delightful

We drove from the Giant's causeway towed Portrush and there are places to stop, park and take photos. You will have great views of Dunluce Castle.

My daughter and I took the Causeway Coastal Route from Belfast to the Giants Causeway. All I can say is, breathtaking! At one point there was a beautiful rainbow over the water coming off the land. Of course we had to stop and take photos!...More

You must drive the coast. Pull over and enjoy the view whenever you can. Makes for great photos, just be careful as it gets very windy. We saw people losing hats and dropping their phones when trying to take pictures. Don’t take the shortcut, take...More

We rented a car upon arriving at the airport in Dublin and headed to the Northern Coast. I highly recommend having your own car so that you are not on someone else's time line. That being said if you aren't use to driving on narrow...More

Hello Helen If you plan to go north from Belfast, I can mostly recommend on the Causeway Coastal Route and if you're driving and not in a rush, just take the time and make many stops along that route.
