Take in the wild and dramatic views on this epic route along the Northern Ireland coast. The scenic route, travels from Belfast to Londonderry and takes in the towering cliffs, silent glens, sleepy hamlets, picturesque fishing villages and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

On top of the ever-changing views of the rugged coastline this route encompasses three of Northern Ireland's most famous attractions. Halfway this road trip you will be introduced to the UNESCO-listed natural wonder that goes by the name of Giant’s Causeway. It’s easy to understand why the ancients believed that these spectacular basalt columns were carved by the hands of a giant. Another exhilarating place of interest is The Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge that was originally hung there by salmon fisherman to check their nets. The walk across is safe but thrilling. Perched on basalt cliffs 30 meter above the ocean the location of Dunluce Castle just couldn’t be more fabulous. No wonder why this castle was used as a shooting location for Game of Thrones.
