Great design

Like in my review of Giants causeway I find the admission price too much. I do like the design of the building and the cafe is good, try the Irish stew.

Get as much or as little as you want from this well designed space. Friendly staff, great interactive displays, vibrant cafe and cracking gift shop. The £18 million price tag is steep but hopefully it will deliver a good quality experience for a few years to come.

I read previous reviews about costs and parking but decided to bite the bullet and bought tickets online on the day. Total cost for 4 adults was £30, a saving of £6. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I took the walking 1 hour tour (included in the price) and it was very informative. As it was quite showery... More

My advice to visitors would be to go to the Giants Causeway with your own food and drink where possible. The staff are very friendly and courteous but what you are asked to pay for admittance is too much and then more for only adequate food and drinks. I had a coffee and a heavy, stodgy piece of Victoria sponge... More

loved our trip here. Staff are brilliant. Walks to suit everyone and bus available to take you to and back from causeway. Centre really interesting. Nice visitor shop. Well worth a visit.

I am a local informed resident who has visited the Causeway many times and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. I am also a supporter of a number of charities and acknowledge that the National Trust, like them, needs our financial help and support to operate HOWEVER I very much resent the manner in which their representatives at the Causeway...

*The Causeway itself is great, this review is for the Visitor Centre/Car Park Signs lead you to a car park where there are signs with prices for the visitor centre. Unclear as to what you're paying for. By the time you have already parked and go inside you realise you have to pay £9 per person, not per car! You're... More

Hi, thanks for taking the time to submit a review, although not favorable to us. The charges at the causeway are for the Visitor Experience, not car parking or one element of the service. We would never force anyone to stay and pay the fees. We are aware that lots of people arrive at the Giant's Causeway and do not... More

Make sure you know how much this place is going to cost you. The car park costs £8.50 per person in the car. There were five of us and we were not prepared to fork out over £40 just to park the car so we just drove on to Portrush and spent the £40 in the pub - their loss... More

Hi, thanks for taking the time to submit a review, although not favorable to us. We are comparatively priced to other attractions of similar stature. The Cliffs of Moher, Titanic Centre and other hugely popular attractions in Ireland have similar pricing structures. Sorry again that you did not think the Giant's Causeway Visitor Experience was worth recommending - glad that... More

Most of the Visitors' Centre exhibits were closed for renovation. This was true for a lot of the places we visited in northern Ulster. Spring is cleanup and renovation time for the big late Spring/Summer tourist influx.
