I have to agree with a lot of people here, it does feel like it's way overpriced. If you're reading this review, you're probably just a few clicks away from reading as much info about the Causeway as you can get in that tourist center. The map is very basic and it's posted on the signs along the trails There... More

The visitors center staff were very polite, informative and helpful. The admission to the causeway included Audio tour sets which allows you to explore the causeway yourself and be informed which i found very good and it enhanced the whole experience.

It was considered a must for our holiday. But what a let down. No discount for seniors and lack of information re the trip to the actual site. Entry fee did not include bus rude to site which was half a kilometre and bus ride was 1 pound per way. No shelter down at site and very dangerous for older... More

The audio tour is good, you follow your guide and you can hear everything she says through your earpiece. Then when you get to the end of the tour you are free to roam around, go on a walk, do whatever you want. There is a bus from the centre to the causeway(there is a small fee around £2) if... More

What I would like to know is what does all the money actually go towards? Just read a review from the manager of the national trust to a lady that had complained stating the money went back into the causeway/ whitepark bay etc. Exactly what is that money spent on? Surely not all of it is spent on the upkeep!

The Giant's Causeway is an undoubtedly popular attraction but I honestly am struggling to justify the £21 for the family ticket to make use of the toilets and car park. There was a big screen thing with a cartoon on it and a rather small display but apart from that you are paying to park and use the toilets. The... More

Causeway was absolutely breath-taking, and any visit to Northern Ireland should not be completed without visiting there. Our Guide was extremely well informed and gave just enough information, and was more than willing to answer questions. Tip : Bring Sterling for Shuttle Bus back up the hill on warm days, as it's quite a hike and definately not for anyone... More

A sympathetically designed building giving both the mythological as well as the geological story of the Causeway and its surroundings. Very well presented and a tribute to the National Trust.

I arrived with a group of seven people. We did not have time to view the centre, we only wanted to view the giants causeway. I entered the centre to pay entry to the giants causeway and I was told that if my car was in their car park I would have to pay the 'facilities charge' of £8.50 per... More

Although the entrance fee is high, we felt that the Visitor Centre itself was very good as it offered toilets and an area dedicated to exhibits explaining the Gaints Causway. A modern buliding offer plenty of space for Visitors to wonder around the Gift Shop area and the exhibits before going down the road to see the sight itself.
