Causeway Coastal Route

After spending a couple of days in Belfast we hit the road for our scenic drive to Derry. The weather was CRAZY and literally went from blue sky sunny to gray sky and raining then back to sunny with rainbows everywhere! We saw so many throughout the day. It was awesome! Oh and the wind. . . did I mention the wind? It was SO windy which caused several places to be closed but we made the best of it and had a great day anyway! I loved this day a lot actually!




The Causeway Coastal Route was so beautiful. It was a such a great ride along the coast with so many pretty things to look at! I drove really slow so Katelyn could snap this pic before we drove through the mountain!!





Then the coolest thing happened. If you know me you know how much I LOVE cows and sheep. So I get very excited when I see them in Ireland as we explore the countryside. Well we were driving along and some sheep had gotten loose and were hanging in the front yard and one was even in the street preventing us from driving by! He was so scared and just stood there frozen which gave us plenty of time to snap some photos! Too funny! #onlyinIreland



Our first stop of the day was at the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge but it was closed! Fortunately we were still allowed to walk out to it and see the views we just weren't allowed to cross it due to high winds. We talked with the man who worked at the bridge which was really nice b/c on a busy day he never would have had time for that. The views were gorgeous and we saw a huge rainbow so that was fun. Oh and I literally thought I was going to be blown off the edge a few times b/c the wind gusts were so strong!





Part of me was not so sad that we didn't get to cross that rope bridge. While I'm not typically scared of heights that is high and it looked very scary!





If you look at the above and below photos you can see how quickly the sky was changing depending on which direction you looked! It was very crazy weather!










Our next stop was at The Giant's Causeway. I thought that the rope bridge was the strongest wind I had ever experienced until I got here! OMG it was SO very windy and then I learned it has the highest winds recorded in Ireland. I can believe it!



The Irish love their folklore and this place is no different. I loved listening to the audio tour about how they believe this place was created!




So I got these Hunter boots for Christmas specifically to use for this vacation (and b/c I've literally wanted a pair for 3 years but couldn't justify the cost). I am so glad I had them! They were the best boots for this trip. They were way more comfy than I expected and I did a TON of walking in them (like 10,000 or more steps a day). If they got wet or dirty I could just dry them off and they were super warm with the boot socks. I love them!


Notice our hair blowing even with head bands on! Lol! Like I said it was really windy!!!!





After freezing our butts off we went into the giftshop and cafe. I bought a beautiful scarf and we had some potato soup with brown bread (2 of my favorites in Ireland). Yum!


We hit the road again and made our way to the Bushmills Distillery. We didn't do the tour or tasting (since we've both done them before and don't really like whiskey) but we did check out the gift shop!



We made our way to Dunluce Castle and unfortunately it was closed! I guess with the winds little rocks from the castle fly around and can be dangerous. So we only got to see if from the outside. It was so cold and windy that we could hardly walk!


We made our way to our B&B which was outside of Derry in Coleraine. The Breezemount Manor was not your typical B&B and was acutally an old mansion. It was really pretty! The best part is that it was walking distance to a great restaurant/bar which meant I didn't have to drive anywhere for the rest of the night (have I mentioned that driving on the wrong side of the road is exhausting)! We had dinner at The Old Courthouse and like its name it was an old courthouse and very cool inside. Oh and it just so happened to be Mexican night which was fine by us! We enjoyed a break from Irish food and went with burritos!!


We stayed for a few drinks and to watch trivia for a little while before heading home for the night! It was a long day but a good day!

If you missed my recap of our time in Belfast you can read about it here. Up next. . . Derry!
