Antrim, Northern Ireland Map

Started down by the causeway, then climbed the stairs and took the yellow trail out along the cliffs. Breathtaking views and easy to follow, though there are a few steep up and down climbs. Go early - we started around 6:30 AM and had the entire place to ourselves, but by the time we got back around 11, there were tons of people on the causeway and on the trails.

Stunning trail, didn't expect to find such a beautiful place! Would 100% recommend.

We were here October 2016 and it was a gorgeous time of year, even with the light drizzle. I would absolutely recommend this area!

On my doorstep all this time and I never knew. Very enjoyable. Half the trail is open countryside with lots of air n great views and the other is steep and tight, winding beside the river.

This is a nice walk around some of our remaining ancient woodland, the trail in and around the trees is quite challenging and it's an excellent place to take your dog for a walk as they can run around well out of harm's way from traffic. Highly recommended

great walk

smashing views and quite an easy hike!!

Minnowburn and Giant's Ring

The views are absolutely breathtaking. I had to keep stopping to take it all in!

Such a beautiful walk from Port Ballintrae to The Giants Causeway. From beach to cliffs ... so majestic!

What an amazing hike. Sheep, cattle & beautiful Irish country side on one side, Causeway cliffs & ocean view to the other side. Dunseverick castle is not exactly a castle, more like 3 small stone walls on a hill.

Fantastic trail with beautiful views over the city. Not too challenging and easy to find.

great hike. along the cliffs of the ocean almost the entire way. it might also be worth it to go to the role bridge. I recommend taking the bus to the end of your walk and walking back,because I had to stop before the bridge to be able to take the last bus back to my lodging.

Lovely path with a beautiful view of Scotland if you catch a nice day.

Yeah, it’s touristy but that’s how I got to see this place. Amazing history and an incredibly serene place. Would love to go back here if I ever get the chance.

Rope bridge is fun and the island is beautiful. A lot of tourists - go early.

A lot of tourists. Try to go early.

Great trail. Almost all of it is along the top of the cliffs by the ocean. A stretch on a nice beach too. I would maybe look at also going to the rope bridge while on this hike. It is about a mile further, but is a popular site. I would recommend taking the bus to the destination and walking back to your lodging as busses end around 6. This caused me to have to cut the trip to just this hike and go back to see the rope bridge on another day.
