Giant’s Causeway is the most famous attraction in Northern Ireland. But why travel straight there when you can work your way up the coast and see sights such as Dunluce Castle and Rathlin Island along the way? Here are the best destinations en-route.
The Causeway Coastal Route is a path that covers almost the entirety of the Northern Irish shore. It’s an ideal way to experience the country and make the famous Honeycomb formation your end, or starting, destination.
You need to veer a little bit off course to reach Torr Head, situated between Cushendun and Ballycastle, but it’s worth a few extra miles on the odometer. An incredible strip of picturesque road leads you along the coast for one of the best views of the Atlantic you’ll find anywhere. It’s one to avoid if you don’t like winding roads, but if you have the stomach for it, take the time.
