Product Description

Highlights and product description overview

  • Twenty four miles of some of the best continuous coastal views in Europe are available on foot along the North Ireland Causeway Coast Way. Given how extraordinarily beautiful it is, it is remarkably underused and relatively unknown…. at the moment. In addition to the stunning hiking, the route is jammed packed with famous sites and attractions from the Dunluce Castle, Bushmills, the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, the Giant’s Causeway a UNESCO World Heritage site, a geological wonder to behold of 40,000 honey-combed shaped rocks, some of the best cliff views in Europe, hidden bays and coves, Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge and Rathlin Island. Irish bed and breakfast guest houses. After a day hiking you’ll be able to enjoy a host of local restaurants and authentic Irish pubs to award winning beach property restaurants. These are independent hikes so you can start any day of the year. You walk at your own pace and stop when you want. No waiting for others to catch-up or feel you have to rush ahead. Accommodation is available in Double, Twin or Single en-suite rooms.

Explore Britain

The owner of Explore Britain, Philip Scriver, has a wide experience of walking and hiking in Great Britain, Ireland and the USA. I have hiked extensively in the United States, completing the full length of the Appalachian Trail (2,000+ miles) in 1980 as a thru-hiker. I started working as a walking tour guide with English Wanderer in 1981, and Abercrombie and Kent and group leader in the UK for Elderhostel. I moved on to offer inn-to-inn, self-guided independent walking tours via my explorebritain website in 1999. I live in County Durham in Northern England with my wife Jennifer. We got married in 2008 at the home of Bobbie Shafto! The winter months are spent preparing special tours for our returning clients. I continue to offer my pesonal knowledge of the beautiful countryside of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales and to advise the best options for independent travel. I am able to "tailor" any of the walking and hiking tours and holidays to suit your requirements; in terms of days, mileage walked, hotel or B&B category or location. I aim to work as quickly and as efficiently as possibly to make the booking experience as pleasurable as the holidays themselves. I aim to be flexible and accommodating to your needs. If you want something slightly different than that which is listed in the website, I CAN offer it. I aim to make a dream holiday a reality.

ARRIVAL DAY ONE: Arrive at the beautiful coastal town of Portstewart, make sure to leave plenty of time for an evening stroll of the beautiful Portstewart strand and why not book dinner in the award winning Harry’s Shack. Stay in a hand-picked, authentic Irish Bed and Breakfast. Overnight at Portstewart on the Atlantic Coast, Northern Ireland.
WALKING DAY ONE: Portstewart to The Giants Causeway 13.4 miles. Hike from the Portstewart promenade along the coast side of the golf course arriving at one of two beaches which wrap around the town of Portrush. Depart Portrush by walking along the gorgeous east strand at White Rocks. Just out of sight, over the dunes is the famous Royal Portrush, one of the top golf courses in the world. Taking the path at the end of the beach you emerge onto one of the few road sections of this route. The views remain outstanding. Walk along the road until you come to the majestic 15th Century castle ruins of Dunluce. Make sure you get a photograph with the beach you’ve just walked in the background of the castle. Continue into the coastal village of Portballintrae and take the boardwalk over the river to the tramline, following the path for the Runkerry headland. Your hike ends at the Giant’s Causeway visitor centre. Have a pint in the Nook bar before heading to your nearby accommodation. You visit the famous stones tomorrow. Overnight close to the Giant’s Causeway on the Atlantic Coast, Northern Ireland.
WALKING DAY TWO: Giants Causeway to Ballintoy 10.2 miles. Pack a great lunch and head off for an entirely off road, coastal path of outstanding views. This is the showstopper day which begins with a walk down to the honeycomb shaped rocks of the Giant’s Causeway before continuing on up the Sheppard’s steps and following the high cliffs to Dunseverick. You’ll not miss the wooden bench at Hamilton’s seat. Rest and take in one of the most remote yet utterly astounding cliff views in all of Europe. As you reach Dunseverick harbour you might like the idea of stopping off for a brief swim in the rock pools before heading toward the tiny hamlet of Portbradden which must have one of the best beach views anywhere. White Park Bay stretches out in front of you with views of Rathlin island and mainland Scotland in the distance. The white church on the headland way up ahead is right beside your destination for the day, another charming Irish bed and breakfast, rest up before heading into the village of Ballintoy for the evening. Overnight Ballintoy on the Atlantic Coast, Northern Ireland.
DEPARTURE DAY FOUR: Depart after breakfast from Coleraine rail station. We have arranged that if you wish to view Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge, that the taxi with your luggage will collect you at the bridge car park at Midday and then go on to the rail station.
