I know it gets chilly in the winter's but they must keep it open for the travelers who have come in to visit the natural beauty from such distances. I was really disappointed to be rushed

You cannot miss this attraction if you go to Northern Ireland. It was part of a bus tour for us. We had a couple of hours here and the weather threw everything at us but it made the experience all the more atmospheric. At first view the visitor centre has the usual shop and information media. I would go back... More

It was full of information for everyone. I prefer to get out and enjoy nature vs. spending too much time indoors. If you have time, sit back and enjoy.

An eyesore of a building looks like a prison and no blending into the countryside. Overpriced and not that impressive in the centre. Price doesnt include minibus to and from site a ripoff. Nice walk and causeway itself spectacular but I last was there before the centre was built and preferred i as it was.

Sorry to read such a poor review of the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre. We are very proud of our building, which has garnered international attention for its innovative design. The building has been designed to accommodate thousands of visitors at peak times; we welcomed 788k people to the Giant's Causeway in 2014. Unfortunately our previous facilities just could not cope,... More

The Visitor Centre is modern and clean with shop, cafe and displays. The latter were excellent. We were impressed with the parking: the attendant noticed our handicap sign and sent us to a different location, closer to the Centre.

This visitor center was new to me as it was under construction the last time I was there. It is a very nice building with a good sized car park next to it. The gift shop is nice and large with lots of stuff for purchase. Behind the gift shop is a nice exhibit about the Giant's Causeway. The center... More

We had previously visited here in July in a beautiful sunny day and it was fantastic. This visit was, the weather was the opposite with showers and a blustery wind. This did not deter from our experience though we never did the coastal walk this time. The guide we had was very informative and was really funny. We had a... More

Incredible Scenery - a must see for any tourist, young or old! You can catch a bus down from the visitor centre, but the walk down is not far, and too good to miss.

Lovely centre which fits in well to the surroundings. Very interesting with the new scientific areas inside and the audio guides are very good for first time visitors. The walk offers stunning views of the causeway coast and is suitable for all walking levels. Entrance to the centre is a bit expensive so maybe if you are planning to use... More

A beautiful centre and one that reflects the beautiful causeway. Very interactive for the kids and adults alike and next time we hope to have more time to spend there and try the cafe.
