We hired a car to visit the Giant's causeway and were advised to take the longer but more scenic route along the coast! We were fortunate to have a lovely day and the views were stunning - highly recommend this journey!

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
