Northern Ireland’s Coast Road Is 4th Best Road Trip On The Planet!





The stunning scenic route along the North Coast beat stunning routes in USA, South Africa and France to make the top 5

Northern Ireland’s beautiful coast route has been named in the top five road trips in the world.

In fact, 44% of the most epic road trips in the world are in Europe and 10% are right here in the UK, according to price comparison site GoCompare.

The stunning scenic route along the North Coast was listed as number four, beating San Juan Skyway in USA and The Garden Route, South Africa.

However, if your top priority is good weather, you might want to travel a little further afield to guarantee sunshine. The Oman Circle, the road trip with the warmest weather, offers an average temperature of 25.6°C.

You’ll pass through deserts and dunes, see cave systems from the road, and experience busy souks and fascinating architecture in the cities. The trip with the least rainfall is the Road to Mount Nebo, in Jordan, which only gets 111mm per year.
