Causeway Coast Way
with Moyle Way
"It is full of great photos, maps and all the information you could need" - Irish Mountain Log
The unspoiled Causeway Coast of Antrim is one of Ireland’s best-kept secrets. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Giant’s Causeway is the jewel in its crown, and its amazing geology is best enjoyed on foot. The Causeway Coast Way offers 32 miles (51 km) of waymarked, easy-going walking with welcoming B&Bs and pubs at strategic intervals.
It combines well with a trip to the wildlife haven of Rathlin Island, and with the more challenging Moyle Way. Here are options for walking holidays that most people will complete comfortably within 4 to 6 days.
We are down to our last couple of copies of this edition of the guidebook. We were close to completing work on our second edition when the Coronavirus lockdown forced cancellation of our March 2020 research trip to revisit the routes. As soon as we know when we can release the new edition, we will update this page. It will also be announced in our newsletter: if you don’t already subscribe, please visit our Home page and scroll to its foot.
This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday:
- route maps for Causeway Coast and Moyle Ways (1:85,000)
- concise, up-to-date directions for both routes
- geology and legend of the Giant’s Causeway
- background on habitats and wildlife
- feature on Rathlin Island walks, with map (1:60,000)
- contact details for accommodation and transport
- over 75 glorious colour photos
- rainproof, rucksack-friendly format.

This guide is great. Very detailed and easy to understand for a novice hiker like myself, full of useful pics and advice.

Excerpt from Irish Mountain Log review
Beautifully designed, spiral-bound and roadmap-sized, it is full of great photos, maps and all the information you could need. … Let’s hope that [Eoin Reilly] is kept busy producing guides to this standard for other heritage trails.

From an online review
The striking front cover alone is enough to whet one’s appetite for a visit, and browsing through the many fine photos inside only reinforces what a highly scenic coastline this is. As with all Rucksack Reader guidebooks, the format is designed to be very user/walker-friendly, with easy to follow step-by-step instructions, plus practical and background info. As well as the Causeway Coast Way, the Moyle Way is also covered, and there is a feature on Rathlin Island, which sounds very appealing. Maps are included for all three.
