Giants Causeway and along the Antrim Coast
This is one of the worlds most amazing coastal drives, well, that was what I had read in the tourist magazine. You can start at either end of the route and as we were already sightseeing in Londonderry we started at that end heading back towards Belfast to complete a round trip for the day.
Day 1186 – May 31st 2017
There are many places to stop on the way and depending on the amount of time you have, will allow you to see more or less. With it being summer time the days are light until around 10 pm which certainly helps stretch the day. What doesn’t go in your favour is the opening times of some of the attractions as you’ll notice below.
Leaving Derry we made our way towards the Giants Causeway. Through the village of Dungiven then after you have views of the ruin of Downhill Castle or Manse Mussenden Temple on the clifftop to Portstewart then Portrush and next Dunluce Castle before reaching the Old Bushmills Whiskey distillery
