Causeway Coast Way

with Moyle Way and Rathlin Island (2nd ed)


Eoin Reilly

"It is full of great photos, maps and all the information you could need" - Irish Mountain Log

The Causeway Coast has been the stage for many scenes of Game of Thrones® and this scenic route visits many famous GoT film locations. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Giant’s Causeway is perhaps the jewel in Antrim’s 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 26-mile (42-km) Moyle Way. All three options join up at Ballycastle, and the book describes in detail walks that people will complete comfortably within 4 to 7 days. This new edition is lavishly illustrated, with 85 colour photos and 17 pages carrying detailed route mapping (at 1:35,000).

We have advance copies of this book on 7 September, one week ahead of its publication date.



This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday:

  • detailed mapping for Causeway Coast and Moyle Ways at 1:35,000
  • concise, up-to-date directions for both routes
  • geology and legend of the Giant’s Causeway

From an online review

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.
