PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland - The scenic A2 Causeway Coastal Route in Northern Ireland is home to 30 golf courses, not to mention scenic glens, natural wonders, ruins of castles and charming Irish villages
Mixed with fantastic golf courses from Royal County Down to Royal Portrush, this is a blend of golf and off-course sights that cannot be missed.
The best way to take it all in is to start in Newcastle at Royal County Down or nearby hidden gem Ardglass Golf Club. From here, set aside half a day or a full day to drive along the coastline at a leisurely pace to Portrush.
This stretch features some of the finest sights you\'ll find in the isles. Some are famous; some aren\'t even marked. There\'s enough variety to stimulate your senses at every turn.
From castle ruins to whiskey distilleries, here\'s what you don\'t want to miss on Northern Ireland\'s scenic Causeway Coast.
Causeway Coast: Sights to see
Giant\'s Causeway - A most unusual natural phenomenon, Giant\'s Causeway is Northern Ireland\'s most visited tourist attraction. It\'s a collection of around 40,000 six-sided basalt columns on the coastline. The formation was a result of a volcanic eruption and was discovered in 1693. Irish legend states the stones were used for giant Finn McCool to walk to Scotland to fight his rival Benandonner. This was rated the United Kingdom\'s fourth best natural wonder. Be sure to look for the \"Organ\" and the \"Giant\'s Boot.\" Guided tours, which have won the \"Best Tour Visit\" award from CIE International, are available as well.
