We were taken for a tour of Northern Antrim and this coastal drive was stunning. Lovely scenery across to Scotland and some attractive valleys and coastal villages away from the bustle of Belfast. To be recommended.

What a beautiful seaside drive! It is what one would envision Ireland to be, green grass, cliffs, fields, castles and sheep. It was our favorite park of the trip, great for tourist.

Not much to add over what others have already written, except to say that we were relatively unlucky with the weather, but the drive is beautiful even on a grey day. Don't cancel your plans due to weather. Also, there is a branch off the...More

Voted the best region to visit by Lonely Plant for 2018, they have just realised what we locals have known forever ... for scenery, culture, food and drink, there's no place like the Coast Road from Larne to Ballycastle!
