Cushendun to Bushmills

Soak up the otherworld­ly views as the Antrim Coast and Glens Area of Outstandin­g Natural Beauty gives way to the Causeway Coast AONB, and you reach the splendours of the north Antrim coast. Along with the stunning scenery, natural wonders and historical sites, the route passes through seaside towns and villages, including Ballycastl­e and Ballintoy.

Bushmills to Derry

As well as making renowned whiskey, Bushmills is ideal for exploring the Giant’s Causeway. Further along the coast, beautiful beaches can be found at Portstewar­t and Castlerock.
