The staff at the centre were very helpful and in discussion one said that his favourite way to do it was to walk the red route, that makes sense when you get there, but in an anti-clockwise direction, which is not the usual way. it is way marked, but you get a fantastic first view of the causeway from above....

The vistas from the cliffs on your walk to the Giant's Causeway are breathtaking - take the time to use the audio guide to explain what you are seeing. The Causeway itself is beautiful and interactive in that you can climb as much as you want. There are guides to assist less able folks or those who get stuck.

Visited this wonderful place later on in the day ... arriving about 3.30pm ... and most of the coaches and other visitors had left so we more or less had the Causeway to ourselves. Recommend arriving later in the day! Wonderful bracing walk down to the stones ... they really are quite amazing. Sat and watched the sea crashing in,... More

This place is sensational! The atmosphere is unique and the visitor's centre has lots of "hands on" activities to keep the kids amused. A great family day out and a must when visiting Northern Ireland !

While this California girl had to force herself out of the bus to go out in the mist and wind, once outside, I was wowed by the seascape and dramatic basalt columns. I can see why Game of Thrones is filmed around here. After checking out the cliffs, columns and beach -- we hiked up the hills and back to... More

The causeway is an absolutely must see site and the rock formations are absolutely fascinating. Set in a beautiful area and really need to be seen. The downside is the National Trust - researching beforehand we understood that we needed to pay so bought tickets in advance, not realising until we arrived that actually you are only paying for an...

Nothing to say that has not been said already about this stunning cliff and rock formation. Take the time to hike all the way up and around to the chimneys, and back over the top of the ridge back to the visitors centre. The facilities at the visitors centre are outstanding. The audioguide (which is included in the entry fee)... More

The Giants Causeway is a fantastic area, always has been and always will be. I would like in this review to put a few things right that are not stated on the National Trust website. The entrance fee is purely for the Visitor centre, Entrance to the Causeway itself is free. However, you cannot park close to the centre and... More
