Giant's Causeway is spectacular! The coast here is beautiful and the rocks on the causeway are amazing. I thought this would be a good place to visit on our way from Belfast to Derry and I was right. We joined a guided tour and our guide James was entertaining and knowledgeable. We took the main road down to the causeway... More

This is one of those places where I think I must be missing something. We went after hours so parking was free and there were no crowds. There was no bus either. It is rather a long walk down to the area of the famous stones. (And oh, it is a long way back up!) It was nice. It was... More

Amazing place to visit, but I do think the car parking/visitor centre is over priced. £18 for two adults to park a car and listen to an audio guide is a bit steep. Considering if we had of had lunch in the hotel next door, we could have got our parking valeted using our lunch reciept and just walked along... More

On Wednesday the 20th of June, my boyfriend and i had walked down to the stones and the staff were very nice and helpful. The sight was beautiful and the day was very sunny. This trip was amazing until we had walked up to the visitors centre cafe area where I had bought my self a bun and a hot... More

We had been many times before although this was our first visit since the new visitors centre had been built. The facilities and audio tour were very good. Out particular tour guide was excellent.

It is hard to believe scenery like this happened naturally. Wear comfortable shoes because you will want to walk and climb all over the causeway. Great information/museum area as well.

If you get the chance go and visit the Causeway and you can't believe nature actually created this. We'd had rain and hailstones on the day we visited so the stones were very slippy but managed to get up a few of them, had to be abke to say I'd stood on it, the young ones were doing it without...

I was spending a few days on the North coast and we decided to visit the famous Causeway. It was a very beautiful sight and I cannot believe why I haven't visited before. It was the end of June and was quite busy but once you are on the famous stones at the bottom of the scenic walkway the views... More

An amazing scenic must. Absolutely fabulous rock formation, unbelievable in the different rock formations there. If you cannot walk down and back, there is a small bus for which there is a small additional charge. You can spend as long a time as you like here, and walk as long and far as you like.

What a wonderful visit we had. Clear skies, surrounded by rugged cliffs and green fields, and the sound of the ocean. It was honestly incredible. What a sight to see. The different shapes and sizes of the columns are fascinating. Also well worth a visit to the visitor centre, it is wonderfully set up and full of interesting facts!
