Overview
More
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.

Make sure you turn onto any road on the ocean side of the road, you will find beautiful little ports, beaches, lookouts etc. don't rely on the government signs, they leave a lot out.

I thought there would be no rival to the beauty I beheld on my first drive around The Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia -- then I got to drive the Causeway Coast in Ireland. Enough said. I'm still gob-smacked looking at my hundreds of pictures!

This is a scenic drive along the coastline of the northern edge of Ireland. Pass Giants Causeway, Dunluce Castle Ruins, and the Bushmills Distillery. Great for picture taking, biking, and hiking.
