Causeway Coastal Route, Bushmills

The Causeway Coastal Route consists of a scenic 193 km (120 mi) road weaving its way around the northern Irish coast between Belfast and Londonderry. Distinctive brown road signs direct visitors to a host of major tourist attractions, including The Giant’s Causeway, Dunluce Castle, and The Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery, set amongst cliffs, mountains, waterfalls, and golden sands. Make sure you give yourself time to explore and enjoy unplanned adventures and tempting deviations. Some of the roads leading off the route to attractions can be quite narrow, so do take care if you’re not used to driving on small roads.

  • Brilliant coastal route,very busy on summer time, driving along the sea,lots of things to see, lots of places to stop and if you're having good weather too,it might be the perfect day out for you. You might bring a higher car but if you want to admire the scenery while driving. 😊😊😊
