Wild and romantic and you can get away from the crowd so enjoy the causeway and then walk towards the so called organ as long as you dont mind ascents. Otherwise just enjoy part of the walk and cut it when it gets arduous. I did. I got good photos with no people by sitting on the rocks and timing... More

The place itself is really impressive. Visitor center has a good parking, a small intro and facts but the star is nature itself.

You dont have to pay the £9 for access to the visitor centre and audio guide but felt like i was missing out on something so really should consider. Stunning scenery and makes you marvel at how these things form.

Great views and you'll be amazed by the rock formations and general size of the stones in some places, disappointed by the visitor centre which is basically a cafe and gift shop. Thankfully if you have a national trust membership ( which we do) you can get in free. £9 if not. People who find it hard to manage long... More

Having walking to the Causeway from Ballintoy (about 10 miles) with stunning scenery along the way I was disappointed to find the Giant's Causeway just over-run with tourists clambering around all over the place. The National Trust Visitor Centre (which by all accounts cost many millions to build) is enormous and rather takes the glory from the actual causeway itself.... More

Breathtaking views, what an amazing place at any time of year. Loved it as much the 3rd time as I did the first. If your not able for the walk from the carpark to the Causeway there is a bus that will take you there for €2.50 return. There is no entry fee to visit the Causeway but there is... More

Giant's Causeway was high on my list of places to visit in Ireland and I wasn't disappointed. We visited midday after lunch and it was covered with people, so not sure of the best time to visit. We were still pleased with the visit. Take the shuttle down and back unless you're in for a bit of a walk. Wear... More

We are from NI so this is not our first visit. What was most noticeable was the huge number of visitors, mostly coach parties, at the causeway. My hubby is very disabled (terminally ill) and sad to say we found some of the visitors had left their good manners at home. He was pushed out of the way by a... More
