Great place and excellent visitors centre but you do need to keep a close eye out for your children if they climb the columns because they look easy to climb up BUT they are far more difficult to come down and there is a sheer drop on the other side which is quite frightening for youngsters who do not expect...

Seeing the rock formations with an understanding of the stories associated with the Giant's Causeway. We lucked out and had a very clear day with no fog. As part of a tour group our time was very limited so we were rushed.

The shape of the rocks is unusual. But don't expect an amazing thing because it's not. It's just ok, I'm sure you can find somewhere better to visit.

First of all, you don't need to pay anything to see The Giant's Causeway - access to the stones is free, but you will need to find somewhere to park or some form of transport to get there. If you do decide to pay the National Trust fee for parking and entrance to the visitor centre, it's worth thinking about... More

If trip advisor would let me say only one word, it would be "WOW". Left us all puzzled and amazed at just how this was formed. Kids had the best time climbing on the rocks.

Fun to ramble over the rocks, explore the area and go for a walk. Try to get a dry day, though, as the rocks can be very slippery if it's wet!

Deeply impressive. Great new visitor centre. Try and get there early to avoid queues. And walk if you can... It only adds to the atmosphere.

Giants causeway was an impressive sight. However - I think it was a bit over-priced. A fee for seing a nature phenomenon shouldn't be necessary. They should rather charge for the information you find inside the visitor center. But indeed - the place was impressive.

The pictures looked pretty... And then we arrived and I was so amazed by the beauty of this place. It is peaceful even with the crowds of people. A few notes so you are prepared: It is BUSY! The bus ride to the stones has a long line and wait. You can walk like we did. It is a pretty... More

The location is beautiful. The sites are amazing. But after paying an entry fee, it seems absurd to then charge people a bus fare back up to the visitors center. Traveling Ireland with my mother on a beautiful, yet hot week of weather, she and I made the walk down the path to the site. She chose to ride the... More
