The array of hexagonal perfection created by nature is just unbelievable. Truly an amazing sight and a beaut of nature's creation... The walk downhill was equally refreshing with lot of views to capture on the way...

The Giant's Causeway is a "Must See" attraction on the Antrim Coast drive. The site is spectacular in any weather! Avoid the expensive Visitor Centre and take the short walk down to the stones or take the bus if weather is bad or if walk back is too steep.

There is nothing like this anywhere! The rock formations are almost sculpture-like. The whole view of the rocks agains the water is breathtaking. It would be especially nice to visit on a sunny day during a time when hordes of tourists are not visiting. The visitor's center facility is packed with interesting gifts, a great cafe, and plenty of restrooms... More

This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and for good reason, it is a natural beauty. Unfortunately I went in December on a day when it was foggy and raining but it perhaps made it all the more awe-inspiring. Make sure you get an audio guide, it will tell some of the tales behind the different aspects. If you are... More

Its really amazing how nature has made this beautiful rock formation. It definitely is a worth visit if you are around Northern Ireland. Plan your trip on a sunny day as the weather plays an important role in displaying one of its own wonders. The rocks here are formed due to age old volcanic activities. Be careful while walking on...

I loved everything about Giant's Causeway. It was so other-worldly the way the rocks were formed. We hiked as far as the trails allowed and sat on the rocks and watched the tide roll in. I can't wait to return and explore some more!

I have visited this beautiful area twice, and nothing changes. The first time was beautiful, and the second time was even more beautiful. This is a must see if you're around this area. I was luckily enough to visit Giant's Causeway when the sun was out, the sun reflecting on the sea, couldn't have made the views any prettier. I... More

First time visiting the causeway, thought at first it was a bit pricey at £8.50 each but when you see how well maintained the area is, how secure it is and the work put into the visitors center this can easily be overlooked. Breaktaking views and worth a visit.!
