First of all you are gonna get annoyed with the whole visitor centre setup and all the money grabbing setups. So ignore them and concentrate on the Giant Causeway as such. Its absolutely fantastic climbing those rocks and taking pictures. We saw sunset from the causeway and was truly breathtaking. So go and enjoy the giant causeways view and dont... More

We couldn't go to Northern Ireland and not visit the Giants Causeway. We travelled along the coastal road from Belfast, it was beautiful, although a long drive. The sunshine helped although we had some rain as well...... The visitor centre was fine, the cafe was reasonable and the handsets for the visit were useful. We didn't wait for a guided... More

An incredible site! Enjoyed seeing the rock formations and hearing the tale surrounding it. Found the audio guides to be very helpful explaining the points of interest plus some additional fun tales. Didn't need the shuttle down to the causeway, but found it very helpful to use it to go back up. It would be strenuous for anyone with disabilities.... More

the weather could have been better for my trip but that wasn't going to stop me taking in the fantastic rock formations and views, i'd imagine that on a purely sunny day it looks even better but i was in awe, even in the stinking rain!

We visited here over Easter weekend, what a wonderful place and amazing scenery. To be fair, you wont get to do many world famous tourist sights for £8 these days, but as other reviewers have said, entrance to the Causeway itself is free-the charge, rather craftily promoted, is only for entrance to the visitor centre. In any case you can... More

I have been to the Giants Causeway several times. On my first visit years ago, there was no Visitor Centre and I could explore in peace. Next was a small Visitor Centre which was OK, but now there is an enormous building with a relatively high ticket price to enter and access the Giants Causeway. The space inside seems to... More

The Causeway itself is unique and you must climb onto it to get the full (and very windy) experience. The site is ruined by an obvious scam of a visitor centre, charging £8 per person which we were told "includes parking, entrance to the visitor centre and an audio tour". Noticeably, it does not include entrance to the site, which... More

See unusual volcanic rock formations on the oceans with breath taking views of ocean. Scotland can be seen in the distance on a clear day, at least I think it was Scotland. If you by pass visitors center and walk down yourself you shouldn't pay anything.

While the cold wind off the Atlantic was distracting the red route was both a great walk and a nice view of both the Giant's Causeway and the surrounding countryside.
