Went to the Giant's Causeway last week. We drove from Newry and whilst driving through Bushmills we saw a park and ride sign just a few hundred yards after we went through the market square. We pulled in and we waited for the bus. As we got on the bus we were informed that by using the free park and... More

Epic views......fantastic scenery..... Alas......unable to take anything but the blue walk due to closures. Certainly still worth the visit though......but judging by the numbers there.....avoid peek times at all times!

Great visit and amazing experience. The way the rocks are formed are superb. We enjoyed a lot. But the price of car park and the £8.50 price is ridiculous. I recommend not to buy the ticket as there is free tour around. Make sure you wear good clothing and strong shoes.

It is a bit pricey (8£) for a visit with audioguide. But could be only me, as it explains thoroughly. The natures sculpting power is amazing -so worth it.

Went on a trip to Ireland with family members as part of a tour. Giant's Causeway wasn't part of the tour, but we were so interested in seeing it we rented a car and drove up from Dublin. The trip was completely worth it. It is awe-inspiring. There is quite a bit of area that can be explored and enjoyed.... More

If your going to Ireland you must go to Giant's Causeway. Its amazing. Its both informative and beautiful. We drove from Dublin to go see this and it was worth the 4 hour each way in the car. If your going there go the scenic route up the a29. We were staying at the hotel next door so the entry... More

This was an amazingly beautiful place to visit and I could have sat there for hours just soaking in the scenery. When we arrived we were efficiently shown parking and then headed into the visitors center to buy our tickets. The center itself is state of the art with all the facilities you would expect (toilets, cafe/restaurant, shop and visitor... More

If you happen to be in Ireland, Northern or anywhere, you should catch a day trip bus to see this amazing sight. Couldn't believe it's a natural wonder.

We started off with the guided tour of the causeway, however we soon left as the guide was a little too enthuastics stopping every few footsteps and we just wanted to enjoy the views and decided to make our own way. We would have been better with an audio guide. The views are beautiful, we were lucky it was a... More

You must stop here, it is just amazing what nature can do. The whole site is also very well maintained and makes it a pleasure to visit. Recommend that you use the free park & ride bus from the village as parking must be paid for at the site.
