After staying in the causeway hotel which was only a 60 second walk from the visitor centre and also free if you are a resident we couldn't be happier! We enjoyed an amazing tour from John who was full of stories, myths and sientific information. A great experience.

The visitors centre is good. It is well laid out and informative, much better than the original that opened back in 1986. But... £9.00 per adult is very expensive for what it is. You would think that you must pay to visit the actual causeway. You don't, you can get there for free through a tunnel at the end of... More

I want to make people aware that you can see the Stones for free by going through the tunnel at the side of the car park. You must pay to go through the visitors centre. Staff will not tell you this, there is no signage and it's a disgrace! I live in Northern Ireland and have been to the GC... More

The visitor centre was a joke. 2 people pays 18 pounds, just to park...! Id recommend having tea at The hotel next door and use their parking lot if you arrive early. If not, pay The Price. The visitor centre is a place where 30-40 people are paid to chat, and accept money from tourists genuinly interested in The natural... More

This is probably the best NT shop I've some across and the information on the formation of the causeway is interesting.

The giants causeway is one of the most beautiful attractions in Northern Ireland and know they've built this ugly and pointless visitors centre in order to charge people to view the causeway, it's severely over priced and disgusting that people insist on commercialising nature.

This is a nice walk with interesting geology and we were able to enjoy our walk without too many people - I suspect that it will be very crowded as the warmer weather arrives.

The visitor center was interesting and had a nice section for elementary-school aged kids, but the real draw was the causeway. You can walk and climb all over... Rangers are there to remind you of safety considerations but other than that, you can freely roam all over the geometric columns and stones. Get the free recorder with commentary to explain... More

Something no one should miss if you come to Northern Ireland. I won't soon forget it! The audio tour is quite interesting and informative
