Causeway Coast

This enticing stretch of coast, home to the Giant’s Causeway, makes for the ultimate road trip. 

Causeway Coast, Northern Ireland


  • The Causeway Coast in its entirety stretches 195 miles from Londonderry round to Belfast. 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.
  • The best way to explore this astonishing route is by hire car. But you can get to the Giant’s Causeway by bus or coach from Belfast. This should take about 1 hour and 20 minutes.
