Over priced gift show and cafe. Very rude staff. This visitor center could be so good if only free for people to enter! Had to pay to get into shop crazy! Amazing atraction with NT cashing in!

I am originally from Northern Ireland so have visited the Giants causeway many times over the years but recently visited again on a trip home with my boyfriend, who being Scottish has never been before. Unbelievably impressed with the new visitor centre, we were pleasantly surprised that it was a free open day so no charge at all. Staff were... More

Our tour members were given a self-guided tour, which cleverly included a male narrator trying to decide his giant's hero name while guiding you through each landmark of the tour. You can choose to walk or take the bus, which runs quite frequently. Very interesting natural formations.

this is a bitter-sweet visitor attraction. The causeway itself is magnificent. The views are beautiful and the place really is quite magical... what isn't magnificent is the fact we paid £17 to basically park one car for two hours!! Absolute disgrace... go and see the causeway by all means but park on the road nearby and just use 'The Nook'... More

Very comprehensive and informative. A must visit before you start your tour---which you can walk or take the bus. Good facilities available ---- washrooms, visitor centre, retail shop, restaurant. And easy parking. Recommended!

We wanted to go into the visitors, centre for a cup of tea and to look at the gift shop, but you have to PAY to use the gift shop and cafe. For four adults, this would have been an expensive cup of tea! Go to the nearby Nook or Causeway Hotel instead.

I have wanted to see the causeway for many years so decided to take a weekend to see it and the surrounding areas. I wasn't disappointed with the causeway itself it was a stunning piece of natural beauty. What did annoy me was the price, £8.50 each for an adult, that in itself was annoying but when I learnt that... More

Lots of information, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We made plans for the rest of our day from their tips. We had fun with the interactive displays inside the centre after our walk around the causeway.

The Giant's Causeway is a must for anyone visiting Northern Ireland, the National trust visitors centre (or should I say gift shop) is not. I've always been a firm supporter of the NT but, for want of a better word, felt conned at having to pay £8.50 to enter the causeway, only being told after we'd paid we could have... More
