Regarded as one of the world's great coastal roads, the Causeway Coastal Route is an absolute must for any visitor to Ireland - north or south. The signposted journey begins on the fringes of Belfast; follow the M5 before veering off to begin your coastal hug, passing by Carrickfergus's magnificent Norman Castle and detouring into the hidden gem that is Islandmagee.

The Route continues its dramatic journey edging the Irish Sea and taking in charming towns and villages such as Glenarm, Cushendun and the breathtaking Torr Head. A further detour through the Glens of Antrim unveils emerald hills, rushing waterfalls and woodland walks.

The world famous Giant's Causeway with its recently opened £multi-million Visitor Centre, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Bushmills Distillery and Dunluce Castle make a mighty foursome as you continue along the North Antrim Coast. And the cliff-clinging Mussenden Temple, thatched Hezlett House, golden sweep of Benone Strand and dramatic Binevenagh plateau add to the must-see scenic stops.

Stop off for tea or a bit of surfing at Portrush or Portstewart then continue to Limavady and the beautiful Roe Valley before ending your journey in the vibrant city of Derry. This really is Northern Ireland at its best, so take a day or two to fully explore the sights, myths and legends that make up this unique landscape.
