About the

 Causeway Coastal Route


The Causeway Coastal route is a designated, way marked drive around the coast of Northern Ireland between the cities of Belfast and Londonderry with nine shorter scenic drives to explore. The route is 120 miles or 190 km  long and links to the ' Wild Atlantic Way ' at Londonderry and  the  ' Mourne Scenic Route ' in Belfast.


The landscape is varied from coastal roads to mountain tops, from busy cities to sleepy hamlets and costal harbours. The main drive is on a two lane A class road, leaving both cities are dual carriageways. Minor single lane roads are only encountered on some of the scenic drives which loop off the main Causeway Coastal Route.


To experience the drive in a relaxed manner, giving yourself enough time to visit several of the major attractions and explore one or two scenic drives you should allow yourself three to five days. Having said that it is possible to drive it in a day if that is all the time you have.
