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. Please note: Glenstaughey Road - This is an interim measure to address the issue of the on road section between Ballintoy and Ballycastle on the Causeway Coast Way, Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council will continue to work towards an off road coastal path.
