Causeway Coastal Route

Discover the secrets of one of the best road trips in the world

Cushendun, County Antrim

Picture-perfect villages nestled into lush hillsides, ruined castles teetering on cliff edges, the ever-present crash of the waves... there are wonders to be experienced all along this legendary coastline

Some places make you want to take your time... like the Causeway Coastal Route. Clinging to Ireland's rugged northern coastline between buzzing Belfast city and the walled splendour of Derry~Londonderry, this is a glorious mix of pretty villages, pristine beaches and exhilarating clifftop walks. The scenery alone will take your breath away – but it's the smaller experiences that will stay in your memory.

The Causeway Coastal Route is everything we hoped Ireland would look like. Breathtaking ocean views, beautiful rolling Irish hills of green, quaint villages on hillsides...


Imagine breathing in the scent of the sea from the craggy heights of Fairhead, tucking in to a plate of freshly caught seafood in a friendly fishing village, or daring yourself to look down as you cross the gently swaying Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge.

And if you want to visit the famous Giant’s Causeway, here's a top tip. One of the best ways to see it is from above – with the Clifftop Experience. On this four-hour walking tour, your local guide will show you how to beat the crowds and get a bird’s eye view of the ancient basalt columns below. So strap on those walking boots, don your rain gear and enjoy the wild beauty of this stunning stretch of Antrim’s coastline.
