At first impression I thought the visitor centre a strange design but once inside I understood why. It is extremely well organised, with a great shop and cafe run by the National Trust. The tour guide delivered an informative and interesting tour. The Causway is a fantastic site and well worth the visit to see. A bus takes you back... More

We spent 2 hours walking around this landmark and it was spectacular. Going in the winter meant we caught some cracking waves crashing over the Causeway. The area is a place of stunning natural beauty.

One of the sites I'd always wanted to visit, it was a windy stormy day so waves were crashing over causeway which made it more impressive! Avoid £9 parking charge per person and park in The Nook pub spend some money in there( I recommend the seafood chowder) then walk thru tunnel , and walk down to causeway or get... More

I have for many years wanted to see this, finally made the trip across the water and not only the causeway, but the people, the food the beautiful scenery, just everything about the place has made me fall in love with Ireland. Stunning.

I have been wanting to visit Giants Causeway since I first saw photos of it when I was 7!! 25 years later I got there! Simply stunning! Even on a stormy day the magnificence of the geology is still visible; more so really! We did the full walk, including Red trail, and took our time doing so; it took just... More

I visited on a day where the Irish weather was somewhat cooperative. Just enough rain that it was still feasible to visit the causeway, and to make the waves dramatic enough to really give you a sense of the power of nature. The causeway is free to visit, and there's a shuttle bus that costs £1 if you're unable to... More

This place is amazing. Lots of walking. A bus takes you down the first mile or so.this is where the chair is. You can see the organ from here. Good for children to let off steam.

Great natural attraction. The visitor centre is well worth a visit too, and has some very interesting and informative interactive displays. Good footwear is a must!
