Fascinating to see what Mother Earth can build when she puts her mind to it. Or Finn McCool if you believe the Irish folktales. Beautiful coastline with rugged stone that you can climb upon. You can walk down to the Causeway from the Visitors center or take the tram.

We were forced to pay the entrance fee for the centre in order to park our car. Giant's Causeway is free, but the visitor centre certainly isn't. Someone had the great idea to build the centre and then force tourists to pay exorbitant prices for parking.

When arriving we could only park if buying a ticket £9 each to enter and see coast. Once inside there were some exhibitions and then you had a long walk to Coast line so good shoes and being fit required for accessing the Causway, there is a shuttle bus. It was in no way like the photo's advertised I was... More

The attraction offers a nice option to ride a bus down to the ocean for $1 pound. The opportunities are endless once you reach the sea. You can spend as little as an hour or the entire day. There is a lot of possibilities there. Enjoy, and WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES!!!!

Helps give you a better understanding of the geological sight...take the time it is worth it. Also, a great gift shop if you are inclined.

Well.... It's not often I write a bad review, but this has to be said! We cycled to the Causeway today as it was advertised online that this will get you a reduced entry fee... That didn't happen! So we paid £24 to get in and went to the cafe for some lunch. Fine. My partner needed the loo and... More

The visitor centre is very modern looking and it functions well. The bathrooms are very good! It is however very overpriced!

Recently brought some friends here that had never been to NI before they were impressed obviously by the scenery but shocked by how poor value the visitors centre was for £9.00 a head the bus journey to the rocks wasn't even included in the entrance fee I myself felt very ripped off especially since we'd enjoyed the causeway so many...

We had walked around the coastal route enjoying the fabulous views from Portballintae around the coast which we have done many times before and is definitely the best way to do this attraction. When we arrived we would love to have called in and had a coffee and something nice . For this privilege we would have had to pay... More
