The staggering rock formations are most unusual and worth the visit alone. The tall stories are typically Irish and interesting and the coastline here is so ruggedly beautiful but than this whole coast in like this. If you would like to see another smaller but similar site (for free) go to Roak's Kitchen and wander about the quaint little harbour,... More

I have made negative comments in my review of the Causeway Visitors center and that you can see the Causeway real for free. Considering the number of people who visit this geological wonder, it is relatively unspoiled. To avoid the crowds and get to see the rocks without 100s of people go early or late in the day. It's definitely... More

It's definitely worth the money, the rock formations is amazing. Walking down to the causeway, every stop is a photo opportunity. The audio which is part of the price, is really good, my daughter loved the narrative.

Exceptional facilities and descriptions. It was great visiting the lands of my grandfather and stunning to see this amazing piece of nature's handiwork . Bus-ride down and up made viewing very easy.

The beauty and the evolution of the Giant Causeway is incredible,. The development of this site millions of years ago and the resulting rock formations is a must see. We had a beautiful day to visit the Causeway. The walk to the actual area was breathtaking. Once at the formation is was great to explore, walk among the rocks and... More

I can't believe anyone is ever disappointed by this place. I should note that not all of the columns are actually hexagonal, and I say this as a geometry teacher, but what a cool thing! Walked the Blue and part of the Red trails. Beautiful. Visitors center was not of any great interest to me, but I could see how... More

Really fantastic, I would definitely recommend seeing this landmark. The views from the causeway are also beautiful which was a bonus. We went on a rainy day and the rocks were super slippery - bring good shoes!

The audio unit is worth the money. You can listen on your way down & set your own pace while viewing the rock formations. We decided to take bus down & back. Glad we did. The weather can change so quickly. Good to arrive early because of the tour buses coming in & unloading lots of tourists.

Great Finn McCool story behind this beautiful, breathtaking UNESCO site. We had a sunny day and explored for hours as this was one of the highlights of our Ireland trip we were looking forward to. We were travelling with two young adults immersed with geological fascination of this magical place. It is quite the walk down and was glad for... More

We decided to skip the fee entrance through the visitor center and hike the grassy cliffs to the causeway (about 2 miles and lots of people did the same). We were so glad we did because you got the full affect of this incredible natural treasure. A must see on the Antrim coast.
