Awaken your Giant Spirit

    1. Escape the Routine Sample itinerary
      Use this pre-built itinerary as inspiration for your trip. We've added a few top attractions, eateries and places to stay across the Causeway Coastal Route.
    2. Downhill Beach on the Causeway Coastal Route. Mussenden Temple sits on a cliff edge in the background while an NI Railways train passes through a tunnel.

      Getting to the Causeway Coastal Route is the easy part- the hard work starts when you arrive and are faced with so many things to do and places to see!

    3. On the thrilling Gobbins Experience, nature isn’t content to just sit back and be admired. It completely engulfs you: from the all-enveloping Irish Sea winds and the dolphins dancing off the coastline.
      1. 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?
      2. 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.
      3. 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.
      4. Catch and Sea group tour
        The award-winning Catch and Sea food experience is returning to Portstewart in 2021 in collaboration with Boy Matthew Sea Fishing Trips and Warkes Deli.
      5. Visitors admiring the Irish Sea and the rugged coastline of the Causeway Coast from The Gobbins Cliff Path

        Scenic, dramatic and inspiring, the Causeway Coastal Route is a constant feature of global top tens and top fives when it comes to visitor experiences and bucket lists. 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.
