A must see. If you like photography you won't be disappointed. You can spend as long as you like wandering along the coastal path taking in the views. They also have audio guides to tell the story as you walk. We were also lucky enough to see a spectacular rainbow. Would love to return in the summer.

We arrived here with only an hour or so to spend, so unfortunately had to rush our visit, this meant we couldn't take the guided tour. I was a bit cheesed at the entrance and parking fee, (£16 or £17 for two adults), I know that we could have got in for free if we had been able to walk,... More

This is a unique natural phenomenon, don't miss it if you are in this part of Northern Ireland. It is accessible even if you have mobility difficulties, as there is a wee bus to take you up and down from the entrance. Most people preferred to walk, though, if they were able. It is possible to climb on the rocks,... More

We had already booked our trip to Irland when I saw a list of the 10 things you are to visit before you die. Giant's Causeway was on the list. I am so glad we took the time to drive up and take a look around. You will never see anything like it. The hand held guided tour was very... More

This place is breath taking. We drove straight up from Dublin and back in 1 day. Absolutely loved it. Walking out on these stones is not the easiest so wear sneakers. We paid the £1.50/pp to take the bus down and back. Totally worth it. It is about a mile walk to get to spot so keep that in mind.... More

A natural wonder. Amazing to see what nature can do. Since our last visit, they have erected a new audio and video equipped tourist centre. There is a shuttle bus that takes you down and back up to the causeway if you find the walk too difficult. It is an amazing sight to behold and a lot of folklore attached... More

This is deservedly a World Heritage site, run by the National Trust. Pulling into the car park we had a mesmerisingly joyous welcome by the volunteer. He must do this hundreds of times a day, but we felt like his long lost brother. The visitors centre matches the status of this site, although a man in a shed would have... More

The Giants Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. The tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea. Most of the columns are hexagonal, although there are also some with four, five, seven or eight sides. The tallest are about... More

Saw Giant's Causeway! A UNESCO Heritage site... A must see if in Ireland! It can be a long walk, to see the basalt columns at the end. Watch the movie how it was transformed into this wonder, and enjoy the legend that goes with it. An audio system will help you understand the things you see. Don't worry, if you... More
