Had a lovely walk from the free car park in Portballintrae (near Buhmills). Facing sea turn right out of car park along edge of coast - the path follows river inland for a short distance and you then cross "three quarter" bridge over the river. Over the bridge turn right to side of the sand dunes which soon becomes a... More

This majestic and unique geological feature is a World Heritage Site. It should be extremely easy to access and enjoy as a result. What you find is that access is complicated and not at all cheap as even parking costs a significant amount. Access down to the Causeway appears to be blocked off by the National Trust's visitor centre and... More

This place is amazing. I would suggest getting there early to miss the droves of tourist from buses. We stayed in the Causeway hotel and got up for sunrise, very beautiful. The National Trust center is overpriced as you have to pay to get in and it is a coffee shop and souvenir shop with small exhibition with the legend... More

An excellent afternoon out. If you are taking the tour I would reccommend taking the guided tour. You can walk down yourself but the tour is much better, our guide was well informed and witty with a little bull thrown in. The views were outstanding and if you have a little imagination it helps.

This was a day trip based from Belfast. We went in a 15 seater coach with a driver /guide Troy. He was polite punctual and never stopped talking for the whole trip as I think he is very passionate of Nthn Ireland and is keen to enlighten you all on what you were looking at or travelling through. The giant... More

Since we were last there a visitors centre has been built. This makes the access to the causeway unduly complicated and expensive. Even having to pay separately for the bus. It seems to have marred what had previously been a magnificent and truly awe inspiring experience.

Wonderful scenery but the weather really ruined it for me. Come prepared: umbrellas, raincoats, warm clothes and really good sneakers/boots.

We went for this day-tour on 11/08. The World Heritage site is truly a nature's wonder. The surrounding sceneries are beautiful. The same tour also included Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, crossing it in the wind was quite an adventure. The only pity was that we passed Dunluce Castle ruin for a photo shot on the way back but didn't enter the... More

The tour was amazing, the audio guides in different languages, we are Polish and we could listen to the audio guide in Polish, there is not any places were they have that. The best were the walks, they fantastic and scenic, it is not a good idea to bring small children as this a longer walk, especially if you go... More

We were a party of 3 and 2 of us had seen the Giants Causeway before so we took the coastal path and vieewed the Causeway from way above. The scenery is superb, so rugged. We thought the entrance fee was outrageous, £8.50 per person including car parking and there was a long walk to it.
