  4. Activities & Attractions
    A whole host of attractions and activities await travelers along the Causeway Coastal Route. Maybe you’d like to get wet while coasteering under cliffs and over rocks. Perhaps you’d prefer to wet your whistle with some fine whiskey at Bushmills Distillery. Or why not explore local myths and legends with a trip to the Giant’s Causeway?
  5. Food & Drink
    There is nothing better for working up an appetite than spending the day out in the sea air. So it’s little wonder that visitors on the Causeway Coastal Route are always happy to sit down in front of a well-earned lunch or hearty dinner. It will come as no surprise that many north coast restaurants feature fresh, locally caught fish. But there is plenty here for all kinds of food lovers and we promise you won’t go hungry.
  6. Accommodation
    As you make your way along the Causeway Coastal Route, you’ll be struck by all you see. In all likelihood, you’ll also be flattened by the sea air and there is no sleep as good as the one you get after a day out by the coast. This famous route can be, as the saying goes, done in a day, but to get the most out of it, you really should take at least two or three. If you decide to take our advice we know some great places to stay.

Around every corner of this spectacular winding route you’ll find thrills and adventure, as well as peaceful retreats. The variety along the coastal route means there’s something for everyone and a multitude of ways you can see it.
