I was slightly disappointed as it didn't seem as big as I expected it to be but it was a lovely experience and I got some fabulous photos. We opted for the little bus trip down and back because it was quite a cold day, and we wanted to make time for lunch. The audio sets quite good however our... More

Has been on our wish-list for some time and we were not disappointed. The Causeway is a natural wonder and you are free to roam as you like. The NT have put in place an excellent visitor centre and the café/restaurant provides good food at not too hairy prices. We got there reasonably early and were able to park easily... More

On a recent tour of Ireland, we (Myself and the Wife) drove out to see The Causeway. We were stunned to see the prices that the national trust were asking, £7 bus from Bushmills and £9 entry. So, for £32 for the two of us, we would receive a two minute bus ride and some audiovisual crap suitable for five... More

The hard sell by the National Trust was OTT. However the causeway has to be seen to be believed. Smaller than I expected. We grabbed a coffee in the visitor centre - lots of dirty tables.

A trip to Ireland would not be perfect without seeing The Giant's Causeway. We took the Ireland Rail Tours from Dublin to Belfast and a bus onto see the causeway. It was an amazing and exciting to see the formations of the stones.

What a fabulous place but what a price! The only available parking is at the visitor's center, which we had no interest visiting. Paying 21 pounds to park at the center to visit a free site--come on!

Stunnigly beautiful and fascinating. The visitors centre has been really tastefully built into the existing landscape and contains interesting information on the amazing natural phenomenon (plus toilets, shop and cafe of course). The audio guides are an unnecessary addition to an experience which needs no digital enhancement but the visitor experience as a whole is well managed and as NT... More

This is a place that I have wanted to visit for a long time and I was not disappointed. We were so lucky with the weather. The skies were blue and the sea was azure. Fantastic. This is one of the most unusual natural things that I have ever seen. We are National Trust members so did not cost us... More

This unique place was everything is was to be. The ability to hike and wander allowed us to examine and see everything. The visitor center was well done and gave the over view needed to understand the geology
