Make a day of it on the Causeway Coastal Route

 

As a special privilege for anyone doing a running tour, for a small additional cost, you can make use of the hot shower facilities at Ballyness Caravan Park in Bushmills. 


Once you have freshened up, refuel with a bite to eat and either, try out some the the many other activities on offer or take a stroll along one of the many beautiful beaches.

Coastal Tours

Causeway Coastal Route - 10k

image24

Starting at the old ruins of Dunseverick Castle, we go along the beautiful rugged Causeway Coastal Route and across White Park Bay beach before passing through Ballintoy Harbour and finish with a wee climb up to Larrybane Quarry near Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge.


For Game of Thrones fans,  Ballintoy Harbour was the setting for Theon’s reunion with Yara, as well as his baptism into the religion of the drowned God. Larrybane Quarry is where Lord Renly swears to Lady Stark he will avenge Ned Stark's death, but alas, meets his own end at the hands of Melisandre's shadow baby.


This route may require trail shoes depending on the weather but can be completed in normal trainers with care. The route is undulating with a steep climb at the end. It also involves climbing over rocks at each end of White Park Bay beach. But remember, the tours will be at a pace that suits you so walking parts of it is fine (that's what I do).


The meeting point to start is the Dunseverick Castle car park on the Causeway Road.
