Hello all. Several of us are coming out end of July/First week of August and looking for lodging for the week. Flying into Dublin and doing a driving tour to Belfast, Bushmills/Causeway, Derry, Donegal, Galway, and back to Dublin. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! Hotels? Bed and Breakfasts? Thank you.

Hi Joseph, 

I am delighted to read of your trip to Ireland this summer.  

Antoine has drawn your attention to the Causeway Coastal Route. I suggest at least two days to explore this stunningly beautiful drive, spending the first evening around Ballycastle or Bushmills, and your second evening further west, before moving on to Derry-Londonderry.  

From Belfast, the A2 coastal road takes you out along the shore of Belfast Lough and basically follows the coast.  Here is a link to specific sights along the way. CCGDownload - Causeway Coastal Route Map - 2023 (mobile).pdf(visitcausewaycoastandglens.com) 
With so much to see in a small area, it is worth deciding beforehand what your must-see sights will be. Some of these must be booked in advance (e.g. The Gobbins path, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, tour of Bushmills Distillery, Giant’s Causeway (booking advisable)).  FYI the puffins on Rathlin Island go back to sea mid-July.  It’s so important to get the balance right between trying to see sights, but also having time to pause and just enjoy being in a beautiful place.  

As regards accommodation, the relevant section of our website has images and descriptions of hotels and B&Bs. https://www.visitcausewaycoastandglens.com/accommodation If you would like help with booking accommodation - and we definitely recommend booking in advance as it is peak season when you are coming - we in Coleraine Visitor Information Centre offer an accommodation booking service; we will be only too happy to help you. Email us your preferences and we will seek to find suitable accommodation for you. E: visitor.information@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk 

All the best with your planning, and I hope you have a great trip, 
Mary
