Antrim Coast Road Trip
If you're looking to discover the beauty of Northern Ireland's coast, there is no better way than to travel Antrim Coast Road. Part of the larger A2 Road, Antrim Coast Road isn't very trafficked but is considered one of Ireland's most scenic drives, running along 40 kilometres of gorgeous coast. Starting near Larne the road travels through picturesque towns like Glenarm and Waterfoot before ending near the Red Arch, which is close to Cushendall. The drive along the Antrim Coast Road isn't just beautiful, it is also close to many of Northern Ireland's biggest tourist draws.
