Ireland's Spectacular Causeway Coastal Route is rated as one of the world’s great road journeys, alongside the Garden Route in South Africa and the Pacific Highway in California. It also boasts one of the top 5 views in the world. It’s an ever-changing tapestry of scenery and colours, set against a dramatic coastal backdrop that will take your breath away, the perfect place for a leisurely tour. The 120 mile route takes you from Derry to Larne and takes in world class attractions like the UNESCO World heritage site at the Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Torr Head, Dark Hedges and the famous Bushmills Distillery.

Belfast is a rising star, emerging from years of political unease to take its place among the UK’s must-see destinations. Your visit will be well worth it, with friendly locals, excellent pubs and restaurants, and top attractions including the Titanic Experience, the atmospheric Crumlin Road Gaol and walking tours of Belfast’s famous murals. The city has historic landmarks such as Belfast Castle and Belfast City Hall, plus a unique blend of traditional and modern culture.

The Wild Atlantic Way
is a world-famous coastal route that spans seven of Ireland's counties, taking in some stunning scenery along the way. You’ll drive routes that ring great peninsulas reaching out into the ocean. Tiny roads cling to the shoreline and then emerge high up in the cliffs above the Atlantic swell. Tucked away in little villages and towns that snuggle into the coastline are delightful cafes and restaurants where you can indulge in the spectacular views, good food and great wine.
