Make sure you have your national Trust membership card with you to park for free. Join a group with a ranger to take you through this truly amazing place and fingers crossed you have the weather to explore and walk the entire area. If you have time drive back to Belfast along the coastal route stopping off for tea and... More

This was one of the highlights of our holiday. Just an amazing place to see. There were lot's of people there but that didn't put us off. Very grateful for the shuttle bus at the end to get us back up the hill.

Just back from a visit to N.I. and a trip to the causeway. I was 14 last time I visited and although it was impressive then it was so much more enjoyable this time due to the excellent visitor centre. I actually think the entry fee is well worth the money to provide the centre there. Our visit was made... More

An iconic attraction that is a must see - we went in evening for a free preview and returned the next day for the full package. Make sure you catch the escorted tour by a ranger, informative and amusing. Thanks "Anthony".

We are from Canada and likely won't get to Ireland again, so this was high on our list of must see's while we were there! The weather was spectacular in late May, 2014. We did the entire walk along the top of the cliffs and then took the trail to the bottom and to the trails end at the east... More

I visited this geological anomaly as part of a Wild Rover Tour. The Giant's Causeway is an interesting formation that is similar to Devils Postpile near Mammoth, California or a formation referred to as Hell on Grand Cayman Island. The walk out would be nice in sunny weather; however, it was raining and very windy so we took the roundtrip... More

This Causeway itself is stunning. But I can t get away from the fact that I was charged £8.50 to park my car and gain access to the 'Giant's Causeway Experience'. Their carpark is the only place to park for miles and don't they know it. The price of £8.50 is frankly disgusting and left a sour taste in my... More

We were lucky because the weather was fab. Had a very enjoyable walk down and caught the bus back, a must when in NI.
