The route follows a key section of the Causeway Coast Way and the Ulster Way and is around five miles in length, starting at the cliff-top ruins of Dunseverick Castle and finishing at the iconic basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway.

With the wild waters of the North Atlantic Ocean for company the whole way, you’ll walk through a dramatic landscape of weathered cliffs and green farmland. Grazing cattle and sheep, along with peregrine falcons, fulmars, guillemots and choughs, are a common sight along the route, which is beautifully maintained by the National Trust.
The North Antrim Cliff Path is a linear route that can be walked in either direction, or why not do it as an out-and-back so you get the stunning views in both directions? From Weir’s Snout you get a magical view of the Giant’s Causeway World Heritage Site – one of Northern Ireland’s most iconic and photographed landmarks.
The route can also be extended to visit the rope bridge over the Atlantic at Carrick a Rede, made famous in hit TV show Game of Thrones.
This route was voted 56th in a 2017 ITV poll to find Britain’s Favourite Walk.
TOG VERDICT: A magical coastal route between two iconic Northern Ireland landmarks – Giant’s Causeway must be seen to be believed!
