The visitors centre is a large open space but is mostly the gift shop and coffee shop. In the busier months in sure the space is full but it felt a bit empty on a cold Sunday in November.

Our long weekend in ballycastle was marred by a visit to the giants causeway.We were not aware that visiting the site itself was free and instead are charged £8.50 each by the national trust for what! A cursory look through their visitor centre (check out the prices of items for sale) .The causeway itself is well worth a visit but... More

After walking around the Causeway itself, this Visitor Center is a welcome place to stop and have lunch. It's big and bright and you could spend a couple of hours here easily.

It was a good set up and the tour guide was quite friendly, maybe trying a bit too hard with a few terrible jokes. But overall it was informative or rather you got to hear loads of folklore stories for what it's worth.

I am originally from Northern Ireland so have visited the Giants causeway many times over the years but recently visited again on a trip home with my boyfriend, who being Scottish has never been before. Unbelievably impressed with the new visitor centre, we were pleasantly surprised that it was a free open day so no charge at all. Staff were... More

Our tour members were given a self-guided tour, which cleverly included a male narrator trying to decide his giant's hero name while guiding you through each landmark of the tour. You can choose to walk or take the bus, which runs quite frequently. Very interesting natural formations.

this is a bitter-sweet visitor attraction. The causeway itself is magnificent. The views are beautiful and the place really is quite magical... what isn't magnificent is the fact we paid £17 to basically park one car for two hours!! Absolute disgrace... go and see the causeway by all means but park on the road nearby and just use 'The Nook'... More
