Northern Ireland route
on: 10 April, 2007, 03:41:24 PM
If visiting Northern Ireland make the effort to travel along the A2 Antrim Coast Road. We picked it up from Belfast port area and travelled to Porthrush, where we were staying to watch last's years NW200 race's.
  Fantasic scenary great twisty roads pure pleasure.

Ballymoney Biker posted some pictures of this route a while ago - and hopefully we'll get some footage for YouTube when over there in June.

It's a "must go place"

Just did the north coast a few days ago all the way from Magilligan Point  to Glenarm and back again. Fantastic day apart from torrential rain in Portrush.

If that's the one in the car park on the north side of the harbour, then yes.

I was lucky with the weather. Over nine days ( Reading, Dublin, Galway , north coast and back to Reading ) , I only had one really wet morning.   I did have the thermal linings in my jacket and trousers most of the time though and I was glad of the heated grips  with summer gloves. Good luck!
