Ulster Way A 625 mile (1000km) circular walking route in Northern Ireland

Causeway Coast Way

The Causeway Coast Way is an exhilarating 33-mile route along the most celebrated stretch of coastline in Northern Ireland. At its heart is the geological wonder of the Giant’s Causeway and the iconic Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. From sandy beaches to cliff-top paths, from Dunluce Castle to natural rock arches, this section of the Ulster Way is one of the finest coastal walks in Ireland.
