Antrim Coast Road

Built in the 1820s using a lot of dynamite The Antrim Coast Road opened up the towns and villages along its 26 mile length which had previously been mostly accessible from the sea. It is a beautiful scenic drive with many attractions a short way off the road.

The Antrim Coast Road forms part of the A2 coastal road that runs all the way around Northern Ireland’s coast from Newry to Londonderry which these days is denominated as The Mournes Coastal Route south of Belfast and The Causeway Coastal Route north of Belfast.
