Causeway Coast

Causeway Coast

This enticing stretch of coast, home to the Giant’s Causeway and scenery that's frequently used in the hit TV series Game of Thrones, makes for the ultimate road trip. 

Causeway Coast, Northern Ireland


The Causeway Coast in its entirety stretches 195 miles between Belfast and Londonderry. It is a popular road trip route, thanks to its cinematic cliffscapes which drop off into the tumultuous Atlantic Ocean.

The Giant’s Causeway, northwest of Belfast, is a vast natural rock formation created millions of years ago by cooling lava. The basalt columns, protruding from the sea, make a majestic centrepiece - but this whole area is a must see.

Brave the wobbly old fishermen’s rope bridge strung between cliffs at Carrick-a-Rede, explore the medieval Dunluce Castle overlooking the wild waves and sample Bushmills Whiskey at Ireland’s oldest distillery.

Join a tour and discover the Game of Thrones filming locations.

The best way to explore this astonishing route is with a tour or by hire car. You can also reach the Giant’s Causeway by bus or coach from Belfast, which takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes.
