Causeway Coastal Route
Welcome to what is rightfully known as ‘one of the world’s great road journeys’: the Causeway Coastal Route. Curving around the northeastern coast from Belfast Lough to Lough Foyle in County Derry~Londonderry, the journey takes you along imposing cliffs, by crystal-clear waterfalls and even into the path of a castle or two.
Along the way, you’ll meander past the Gobbins cliff-walk, a masterful feat of Edwardian architecture and through the Glens of Antrim, bound for the geological marvel of the Giant’s Causeway. Remnant of an epic battle (or volcanic activity, depending on your beliefs), its 40,000 basalt columns are the perfect combination of legend and lava. As any driver will tell you, the views are spectacular.
