The most surreal experience, its like another planet! Dramatic views across the causeway, one of the most stunning places we've ever been to. Great visitors centre and at £8 each, excellent value for money.

This is a lovely location with a large visitors centre telling the history and myths of the Giants Causeway. The Causeway walk is long but a small bus service operates from the visitors centre to the causeway there is also a bus running between Bushmills and the Giants Causeway

We truly enjoyed our trip to Giant's Causeway. It's amazing what nature has created! We had a slightly overcast day but we could still see for quite a ways. The stones and the area are beautiful and the audio guide is entertaining. I highly recommend a trip to the Giant's Causeway.

Northern Ireland was truly the highlight of our visit to Ireland. Travelling with Derek Gordon of McComb's to the Giants Causeway for a day was tremendous and not just because of the site. Derek shared so much history and information about every site along the way and went out of his way to accommodate every traveler. He even drove a... More

Firstly, go to The Giant's Causeway. It's a fantastic place. It's amazing that it's a natural phenomenon and deserves a visit. However I do think one of the guides should be less judgemental. It was quite obvious from the off that he had a problem with me, a heavily tattooed chap, and an Asian couple. He only talked to the... More

It'a a really unusual place. I still can't believe that it was created by nature! You have to walk around 15-20 mins to get to the rocks and get the proper Giant's Causeway views. It's hard to get pretty good photos there as it's crowded and there's always strangers in the pics:) But it was Easter when we went so... More

I've been to Northern Ireland several times and somehow had missed traveling to see the Giant's Causeway. Photos I had seen of this geological rock formation begged a visit. The automobile parking lot sits directly behind the government built information center with resembles a big black box store. The parking lot is where one begins dispensing money at every turn...

We had a nice visit and got the audio guide. I don't think this attraction should force people to pay for parking as this is a public area unless you do want to go to the visitor's centre. It's quite a steep cost!
