Did you know that many of Northern Ireland’s top attractions are located along the Causeway Coastal Route? I love that they are so close to each other – it is possible to see most of the highlights over a weekend. However, if time allows I would highly recommend a longer stay – there are so many things to do on the Causeway Coast.

The Travel Expert at the Giants Causeway.

The Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and Dunluce Castle are all household names, but Murlough Bay and the fabulous beaches in Portrush and Portstewart should not be missed. You can also take a trip to Rathlin Island, enjoy a tour of Old Bushmills Distillery and visit many of the Game of Thrones filming sites, including the famous Dark Hedges.
