This is lovely walk to do any time of the day (head torch at night) and any time of the year. If you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse of seal pups!

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.

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.

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

Great walk, awesome views and lake at the summit!

Amazing views from the top. Can’t believe this trail is almost on our door step. Will definitely be making the short trip to do it again.

Went on this hike yesterday and took a 9 and 10yr old. We left out the summits and headed straight to the saddle for spectacular views. The children’s parents did this same hike years ago as children too and everyone loved it. It’s hard going at parts but so enjoyable. Fabulous day out!

I hiked this exact map yesterday and must say, it isn’t as easy as made out. Although when at the top of the summit it is spectacular

I agree its not that easy but well worth it...

it's not that easy

Great wee trail for an easy hike. The wife and I along with the dog did this route couple weeks back. Highly recommend it. Easy route too

Loved this walk. Wasn't much of a hike except once into the island past the rope bridge there were some rocks to climb. But nonetheless an amazing place to wonder and explore. Some amazing panoramic views! So much to take in!

This path along the water was breathtaking. It's a fairly easy hike, very doable. It is mostly riddled with tourists but we'll worth the views overlooking the water and rope bridge.

A beautiful scenic walk along the Antrim Coast and an exciting crossing of the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. Highly recommend if you're in the area--one of my favorite parts of my trip to Northern Ireland.
