The stunning Causeway Coast is simply amazing as the autumn colours take hold and the scenery becomes even more dramatic. It is easy to explore the Causeway Coast, you can either rent a car and drive the Causeway Coastal Route with the handy RoadTrips by TomTom or just as easily discover the stunning 243km route from Belfast to Derry- Londonderry by train or bus. Enjoy unique highlights that will get your heart racing, magical landscapes, delicious local specialities and cosy pubs buzzing with music and friendly locals! The route begins only just over 2 hours from Dublin airport.

1 Enjoy Unique Coastal Experiences

The Gobbins Cliff Path, the Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge and the Giant’s Causeway will get your heart racing. Blow those cobwebs away on a cliff walk or dare to feel the adrenaline as you cross over the rope bridge way up high. Unforgettable memories, not to mention the brilliant photos!

2 Soak up the Magical landscapes

Beautiful vistas around every bend. With the Autumn light you can be assured of magnificent photos - so keep that camera ready. Lots of magical day trips available up the Causeway coast from Belfast but an overnight stay is highly recommended.

3 Food for the soul – taste the delicious local specialities

The food here is honest and authentic. Imagine fish caught fresh every morning, the smell of home- made bread and scones awaiting you. Enjoy that Irish coffee or a delicious glass of whiskey right from the casket – always a great conversation starter.

4 Feel the unique rhythm of the music or join the locals celebrating Halloween

Northern Ireland is known for its musicians and love of music in all its genres. Drop into one of the great pubs and soak up the music. Or bring your scariest outfit and take part in the legendary Halloween festivals celebrating the harvest and getting ready for the Winter. The Banks of the Foyle Festival (26th Oct. to 01st Nov.) in Derry-Londonderry is the biggest Halloween celebration in Europe.

5 Unique and cosy accommodation 

From cosy cottages to castles with ghosts and from Game of Thrones inspired banquet evenings to your very own lighthouse for a weekend – Northern Ireland is not short on choice!
