Exploring Northern Ireland is easy. In the countryside, the roads are excellent, well signposted and largely toll free. Distances between towns are short and driving is on the left hand side of the road, same as in New Zealand.
Day 1: Belfast – Island Magee – Ballygally (44km)
Spend today discovering The Gobbins. Start your adventure at the Visitors Centre where you learn all about the story of this rugged coastal pathway. For those not able or keen to undertake the full journey, there are other cliff-top walks to enjoy in the same location.
Day 2: Ballygally – Cushendun – Bushmills (80km)
Take the coastal route north, stopping at the quaint village of Cushenden with its idyllic Cornish Cottages and caves on the beach made famous as a filming location for Game of Thrones.
Day 3: Bushmills – Portrush – Giant’s Causeway – Bushmills (26km)
Head to Portrush exploring the cliff facing castle of Dunluce dating back to the 14th century. In the afternoon, explore the World Heritage Giant’s Causeway. Marvel at the unique rock formations and learn of the myths and legends that surround this famous landmark.
Day 4: Bushmills – Derry (65km)
Visit the world’s oldest whiskey distillery, The Old Bushmills Distillery. Get there early as this is a hugely popular attraction. Continue on to the medieval walled city of Derry and enjoy a walking tour of the town. Learn about Bloody Sunday at the Museum of Free Derry.
Day 5: Derry – Donegal (77km)
Drive the scenic route through the top of the Glenveagh National Park. Follow the coast through traditional fishing villages, stopping along the way for a brisk beach walk or even a surf, before reaching Donegal.
Day 6: Donegal – Sligo – Dublin (224km)
Stop in Sligo to view or walk to the top of Knocknarea, a limestone hill dominating the skyline and offering wonderful views across Sligo Bay to the lakes and mountains. Pack a picnic and stop lakeside for lunch.
