Really loved my time here. The new(ish) exhibition center has been really well done in its targeting to a wide audience and excellent quality of general amenities. The audio set was detailed and informative. It was a cold and windy day with a chaotic ocean and snow but the drama only added to the beauty. I loved that we could... More

Certainly one of the natural wonders of the world. The visitor centre is excellent with plenty of interesting information to watch and read. We had an audio set which you can control yourself as you walk down to the causeway. I really can't imagine why anyone would catch the bus down as it's only a short walk (unless walking is... More

Beautiful walk around the coast although you can get in for free if you don't know the stories of the giants causeway it's better to pay and get the audio guide reali good if u want to keep your kids interested in the walk by relaying the stories to them

Very popular tourist destination so expect lots of people. They have a shuttle bus but we decided to walk down to the rock formation (about 20-30 minutes) - no real problem for most ambulatory people. The queue for the relatively infrequent shuttle bus back up the hill was very long and as we didn't want to wait we decided to... More

Visited the causeway in January but even on a cold and windy day it is quite spectacular. The new visitors centre is exceptional with good information and facilities. Very sympathetically integrated into the landscape. We took the recorded information handsets on the walk from the centre to the causeway which we found interesting and entertaining. The natural geology of this... More

Amazing. We booked a day trip from Dublin to the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge and the Giant's Causeway. It was fabulous. It's quite a hike, but there are busses to take. But I recommend walking, so you get to soak in all the beautiful surroundings. It felt like I was not even on this earth, sooooo gorgeous. And we had good... More

Visited the causeway with a group I around 20-our tour guide was amazing and very informative. Well organised national trust site. The weather on the day was wet and windy but that did not take away from the beauty of the causeway, a must see!

Incredibly well organised National Trust location, great facilities, good paths for walking (optional bus) the Causeway itself to see this and enjoy it is priceless. All staff were very helpful.

The rock formations are amazing. Perfect for photos or for simple admiration of nature. Please do skip the visitor centre - it was such a rip-off. I do not mind paying for parking alone but payment was needed just to ENTER the cafe or souvenir shop - this was completely senseless to me: I had to pay to enter the... More
