Beyond Belfast - Driving the Causeway Coast

Driving the Causeway Coast

One of the greatest drives on earth, the Causeway Route stretches from Belfast to Londonderry. Following the arc of the Atlantic coast, this famous road snakes through the rural heart of Northern Ireland, passing winking lighthouses and proud castles, ancient monuments and whisky distilleries. It is a drive into a world of history, folklore and extraordinary natural beauty. And yet, by the roadside at Larne, the very humblest of stone signs marks its beginning.

The road winds for about 120km—slightly longer if you begin from Belfast rather than Larne—but the reasons to stop are many, so if you hire a car in Belfast, give yourself plenty of time: this drive isn’t one to be rushed.
