Causeway Coastal Route 4-day itinerary
The Causeway Coastal Route in Northern Ireland is an amazing road trip covering 193km of stunning scenic beauty with a wealth of must-visit attractions. There is so much to see and do along its route that it would be a shame to rush the experience. Why not break it up into a Causeway Coastal Route 4-day itinerary and use Bed and Breakfast homes as your base along the way?
Walk in the footsteps of the men who built the Titanic and visit the world’s largest Titanic Experience in Belfast City. Then, take a stroll on the wild side with the ‘Gobbins Cliff Path’ walk, an exhilarating meander around the beautiful Islandmagee Peninsula. Next stop is Glenarm Castle and then onto Cushendun Caves, a location used in the Game of Thrones TV series.
Take a 9.5km ferry ride to Rathlin Island and explore the island’s rugged beauty. You can hire a bike or take a bus tour and learn about the island’s rich history. You’ll need a day here to ensure you don’t miss out!
First stop on day 3 is Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. Cross it, if you are brave enough and you’ll be rewarded with outstanding views. Then on to the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO world heritage site of geographical importance. Follow this up with a visit to the Old Bushmills Distillery, the oldest working distillery in Ireland and last, but by no means least, Dunluce Castle, a fortress dramatically perched on a clifftop.
Enjoy a round of golf at the world renowned Portrush or Portstewart Golf Clubs, and then visit Mussenden Temple, built in 1785 at its beachside setting in Downhill Demesne. The perfect way to end your Causeway Coastal Route 4-day itinerary is in the magical walled city of Derry.
