It's been several years since my last visit and the improvements are excellent. We did the walking tour - the kids really enjoyed it. Our guide ( John) was funny and informative. Well worth a vist.

It's been made very accessible with a bus pick up from outside the English heritage center all the way to the cause way. for the... More

The giants causeway is amazing and well worth the trip. The visitor center however is a complete scam. You fee you pay is only for access to the visitors center and an audio tour. The bus to the causeway costs extra and requires British currency. Just skip the center altogether and walk down, you can find all the information on... More

A truly amazing experience but shame it was so wet and cold on the day of our visit. Wonderful visitor centre and a great guided tour and a photographers paradise! Certainly should be on everyone's wish list when coming to this amazing country!

This is a national trust site, and it is easy to see why. We did not allot enough time there, and it was very cold the day we visited, somewhat impeding our ability to stay out. That said, I must return to spend more time there! It was beautiful and intriguing! You can obtain a headset from the visitors center... More

The site itself is FREE and it is absolutely breathtaking. You only pay if you want to visit inside the tourist center/gift shop. We absolutely loved this site! I am shocked to see it is the #2 attraction in Bushmills and not #1

I've read a few reviews bellyaching about the Giant's Causeway, these people would be better off joining the NT to get super value for money all around the UK. The visitors centre is a magnificent and low visible impact building, which our group found fascinating. The causeway itself is impressive and it would be a crime not to go if... More
