1) Cruise the Causeway Coastal Route

Experience 120 miles of pure magic on this epic road trip, hugging the wild Atlantic coastline with dramatic cliffs, lush green fields and dotted with iconic attractions along the way. While it’s the ultimate road trip, we recommend you stop frequently to truly experience the natural beauty, wildlife and people of the Causeway Coast and Glens.

2) Get closer to the magic on foot and uncover what you can’t by car

The Causeway Coast and Glens is a paradise for walkers. From leisurely strolls along beaches and coastal paths to mountain treks and cross-country trails through our Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), there is a route for you. Take it at your own pace or engage the services of a local guide to carve your path and tell you the stories of the land along the way.

3) Take a ferry trip to Rathlin and become an islander for the day

Hop on the ferry to Rathlin Island, just a six-mile crossing over the Sea of Moyle from Ballycastle Harbour, perhaps accompanied by the playful dolphins and porpoises who love to swim alongside the ferry! Explore along the shore to Mill Bay where you’ll meet some of the friendly resident seals basking or at play. Cycle hire is another way to enjoy the island; jump on your bike and explore the beauty of this unique setting. The island has a range of accommodation and a great pub and restaurant where you can relax and recharge in stunning springtime surroundings.

4) Reawaken your appetite for great food and drinks with our local culinary delights

Whether you’re dreaming of a post-beach-walk refreshment by a roaring fire, drinking artisan coffee with epic sea views, fine dining in quietly luxurious surroundings, moreish fayre in a buzzing wine bar, or tasty, traditional fish and chips al fresco by the sea, we have something for you to savour, served up by our passionate and talented chefs.
