About the Route
The Causeway Coastal Route is a designated, waymarked drive around the coast of Northern Ireland between the cities of Belfast and Londonderry with nine shorter scenic drive for you 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 coastal 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 and allowing you enough time to visit several of the major attractions enroute and also to 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.
