Living in Northern Ireland I've visited the Giants Causeway on numerous occasions. It's always the first port of call when family or friends come to visit. The first time you see it, it is jaw-droppingly beautiful and your mind has trouble taking it in that this is a natural occurrence and not man made. From the car park you have... More

I hadn't visited Giants Causeway for some time & certainly not since the new visitor centre was added. The giants causeway was always an amazing spectacle but the addition of the visitor centre has made it the complete article. The centre is unobtruceively built into the landscape. The audio visuals are as good as I've ever seen & the facilities... More

How ever many photos you have seen, actually walking on the causeway will still take your breath away. The near perfect hexagonal blocks formed so long ago have been weathered, some having domed tops and others forming shallow bowls. The heights are variable, some convenient seats, others high over your head, and this is only the top of the pillars... More

Apparently, gone are the days when a visitor could simply roll up, pay a reasonable car-parking fee and stroll through the wonders that are the Giant's Causeway. Today, with the new large visitor centre, you have to pay a hefty charge per head for the privilege - far too much it seems to me compared to other natural sites to... More

Stunning place, interesting history, well organised tours. You have to pay to enter the tourist centre but you get either a audio guide or join a live guide tour. Mark was our very knowledgeable guide and provided a wonderful excursion for us and our two children. Fascinating history and amazing scenery - really recommend.

Spent a few hours here on a tour stop, wish I could have spent all day exploring. Definitely worth the trip but avoid the nook restaurant as the food is over priced and not good

Really cool and great for everyone! It's amazing what nature can do, and this is a perfect example of nature at its best. Don't skip this!

This is a place we have visited for many year's although not since they built the visitor centre. We returned here with our grown up children as it was a few years since they had visited to find a massive building had been built.we parked on the car park, but didn't want to go into the visitors centre, we just...

outstanding. atmospheric, beautiful...look a bit disappointing from afar but once you are upon them they don't disappoint. The whole area is a feast for the eyes...especially for fans of Led Zeppelin...
