We returned for a longer time on this occasion and took our children into the visitor centre. In my last review I hastily described this as 'pricey'. For our recent trip I booked for our family of four online in advance, paying just under £19 in total. Worth every penny. Although it was February halfterm there were not that many... More

One of the most moving experiences of my life was walking the Giants causeway. It makes you feel so small and the rock formation is fascinating. All these hexagon stones that fit perfectly together. It's remarkable. I was fortunate to be there on a beautiful day. A bit of hail when I arrived which quickly cleared with the rain in... More

The Giant's causeway was a really picturesque sight and it was a pleasure to walk through admiring the view on the way. The audio guide is very informative about the different parts of the place and the basalt columns as well.

Such a beautiful place. I went there in January and it was cold but so worth it. What you see is unbelievable and the shape of the rocks is incredible! Not so far from Belfast and I believe that if you are in Ireland it's worth taking a couple of days and going to the giant'a causeway.

Don't bother with the visitor centre unless you need an audio guide or want to see some interactive video. There are toilets on the outer of the building and refreshments can be bought from the Nook pub or any other close-by hotel/restaurant. The rocks themselves are amazing as they don't look natural at all. Well worth the visit if you... More

Even during winter time it is stunning, we hired a car and drive from Belfast following the coastal line and I have to admit is one of the most beautiful landscapes I have seen. Once you get to Giant´s causeway you find the information center with a nice coffee shop and w facilities. The place is magnificent and totally breathtaking!... More

The Giant's Causeway is so worth seeing. I don't know how many times in my life I have been there, but I never tire of it. It was lovely to go back with the kids as teenagers as they really enjoyed it too. Spectacular!!

Great tourist attraction! Wasn't busy when we visited at 9:30am. Couldn't climb the causeway as was too wet and windy but still enjoyed the walk and the beautiful scenery. Utterly breathtaking. Decent gift shop and facilities on site.
