Hadn't been for a few years but took some friends from England last week. The sign outside said visiting the rocks is free, (as I would expect, frankly). However if you park your car in the car park or the adjacent hotel they want £8.50 per person, (no, not per car, per person). £34 to park the car- are they... More

I was quite confused as I thought that the entrance fee is for the causeway but it was for the visitor centre.I need to pay as I wanted to buy some souvenirs.Beside you can get the audio for the tour.The bus to the causeway price is not included in the ticket.you have to pay separately.

Didn't realize that you could just walk to Giant's Causeway without going through the visitors center. It is expensive but we had an excellent tour guide and that made it worth it. If you are into guided tours, do it. We learned so much. If you're not, then don't bother.

The welcome center is a nice design with lots of room inside for a tea room, gift shop and museum. The museum is geared towards children and features a movie and lots of hands on activities. You can do the free guided tour or utilize the self guided audio devices (which is what we did). We chose to take the... More

We loved our trip to the Giants Causeway. We took one of the guided tours and laughed down the road to the Causeway, well entertained by our guide. He told us about the science behind he area as well as the legends surrounding the Giants of Ireland and Scotland. Super friendly staff who were more than happy to answer questions.... More

For a car ... they charge per person that's 42 pounds for 5 people,drop off your 4 passengers on the road 100 yards from parking place and pay for one person ... there is no fee to walk down to the stones and the visitors center is not worth visiting ... drive on the balintoy harbour for a nice cafe...

On visiting the Giants Causeway on 11 February 2015 I had the intention of going to the centre, but was put off by the expensive entrance fee. Decided not to bother. Other people who had paid the fee were complaining was it felt as though they were being charged to enter the shop, as there was little else in the... More

The causeway is free, but you have to pay eight pound fifty if you want to use the shop/cafe/toilets. Absolutely ruins the experience and is unlike any other National Trust shops I've been too.

I managed to make it to the Visitor Centre, but not much else. The weather was much too difficult to make the trek to the stones and one of the trails was closed. I did notice it was more a shop and cafe than anything else, and lots of advertisements for Dracula Untold, which I guess was filmed at the... More
