About the Route

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


The landscape is varied from seashore 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 yourself enough time to visit several of the major attractions along the way 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.
