We were taken for a tour of Northern Antrim and this coastal drive was stunning. Lovely scenery across to Scotland and some attractive valleys and coastal villages away from the bustle of Belfast. To be recommended.

What a beautiful seaside drive! It is what one would envision Ireland to be, green grass, cliffs, fields, castles and sheep. It was our favorite park of the trip, great for tourist.

A beautiful drive from Larne all the way to Torr Head and Ballycastle. Loads of places to stop along the way to take in the views of grab an ice cream / something to eat. A must do when in County Antrim.

Voted the best region to visit by Lonely Plant for 2018, they have just realised what we locals have known forever ... for scenery, culture, food and drink, there's no place like the Coast Road from Larne to Ballycastle!

We drove from Portstewart towards Belfast along the coastal road. It is spectacular. There are many places to stop at along the way, with villages and inlets to visit. The giants causeway is obviously a great attraction but only 1 of many. Take your time,...More

Not at all. There is a bridge / tunnel through one part where uou have to go more to the middle but everyone knows and it's fine. This is my favourite road so drive it for pleasure. There are many 30mph limits so look out... More
