Before visiting the stoneworks this is a must...an incredible. achievement. Bags of explanations and local folklore in a superb open plan setting.

Try to avoid paying the fees if u can. It's pricey when u go thru the center and there is a charge for the bus to shuttle u back & fro. The structure itself looks better in Picts than in person. We've seen more interesting sites like the cliffs or the suspension bridge.

This is probably the worst visitor centre I have ever been in. What more is there to say about it. The audio visual is ridiculous, hugely over priced restaurant and gift shop, complete rip off and not a patch on what was there before! Even more scary is that it cost 18 million to build, WHERE did this money go,... More

This historic site offers little to those who cannot climb on the rocks and explore. There were no guides to provide information about why the site is important.

There is plenty of parking outside the centre (free for National Trust Members). The centre has a small café with good views and the usual souvenirs and information videos.

The visitor centre itself is actually very nice and gives good information. Its also nice to see the beautiful photos etc of the causeway tourist free, which is how I would have liked to have been able to see it. We didn't eat here, but the cafe looked nice and the toilet facilities were very clean and tidy.

Visitor center is nice and modern, has a cafe and gift shop but the best part is the historic drawings and paintings showing what the Giant's Causeway once looked like.

This is a money making scheme. While i'm not apposed to chipping in for the maintenance and well being of such a big tourist site, this is not the main attraction and not worth the admission in my mind. Just get out there and explore the causeway. It is the star of the show!

Visited with my wife on Wednesday 27th September whilst on a trip to Ireland. Pulled up by coach outside the visitors centre and was advised that it was a 20 minute walk to the Causeway but we could take a bus. This was a rip of and the Causeway was nothing exceptional. Caught the bus back to the visitor's centre.... More

This review is specifically for the Visitors Centre of the Giant's Causeway. When you park in the visitor's centre car park, which is the closest point to the Giant's Causeway rocks, you are charged 8.50 pounds. This includes the car parking, exhibitions, shop, bathrooms, cafe and guided tour to the rocks if you choose. Given the exhibitions in the centre... More
