Stunning views, dramatic scenery, changing landscape. Plenty of lovely little villages and harbours dotted along the coastline with lots of stopping places for scenic views and photo opportunity. Comfortable driving, well maintained and signposted throughout. NO roadworks, no hold ups, how delightful

We drove from the Giant's causeway towed Portrush and there are places to stop, park and take photos. You will have great views of Dunluce Castle.

My daughter and I took the Causeway Coastal Route from Belfast to the Giants Causeway. All I can say is, breathtaking! At one point there was a beautiful rainbow over the water coming off the land. Of course we had to stop and take photos!...More

For the third time, traveling from Belfast area to Giants Causeway, I choose again to take the slow but amazing route, with great views. Most recommended to stop in one of the villages or towns along the route, for a nice breakfast or a cup...More

This experience can begin in either Belfast or Derry but you should bear in mind that you can't do everything. Giants Causeway, Dunluce castle, bushmills distillery, the rope bridge and dark hedges. They all take time out of your day if you do them all...More

This is a Must See place, especially Giants Causeway. This is an all day trip so afford enough time.

Hello Helen If you plan to go north from Belfast, I can mostly recommend on the Causeway Coastal Route and if you're driving and not in a rush, just take the time and make many stops along that route.
