We visited in February 2015 when the site was not very busy. We had a guided walk to the causeway and the guide was very informative and funny. Without him it would have just been a cold and windy walk to the stones. Because of the weather we didn't walk around the headland but we did walk on the causeway.... More

The size of the area and the size of the columns are amazing. The free audio guide is a must because the narrator is very entertaining.

This was a great experience. Walking down to the sea and seeing the stones with the waves crashing over them was memorable. It was very quiet when we visited and I'd recommend a morning visit to get an atmospheric experience. When 800,000+ people visit each year, a place like this needs money spending on it to try and keep it... More

Wonderful views, the geological formations are awe inspiring, great place to stop and stretch your legs for a 1 hr hike during a long road trip. The visitor center is very modern and looks very well done but you have to purchase a ticket to go inside. You can park and simply walk down to the giant's causeway for free,... More

The rock formations are very interesting - but the walk is a bit intense. The city runs City busses down and up - 2 fares. You'll thank yourself for waiting for the bus....

Not the 8th wonder but it's a good place to see, it's smaller than I expected but there is beautiful vistas around. No troubles with the entrance, just ignored the people there and went through the tunnel on the right without anyone asking anything. I see why people might get confused but just do this and you will be fine.... More

Wow is the only word you will have on your lips as you walk along the coast line toward the Giants Causeway! The hexagon rock formations will blow your mind and as you listen to the mythology on your audio guide you just might catch yourself believing in fairytales :) The day was ice cold so if your going in...

The views here were amazing. The audio tour is terrific. Yes, you can take a shuttle bus down from the visitor's center but you will miss out on some pretty amazing sites along the way if you do that, so I recommend you take the time to walk down if you have the energy (take shuttle bus back up though)....

This place is just amazing and the legend behind it quite amusing. The giant's causeway illustrate how surprising nature can be.
