Visiting the Giant's causeway has been a lifetime ambition and oh, I'm so glad I made it. It's extraordinary. The incredible structures and natural beauty were exhilarating. Visiting towards dusk on a drizzly evening has its disadvantages - slippery stones, bloody knee and ripped jeans, anyone? - but I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

amazing sight. very long walk would not be ideal for people with walking disabilities. Take fluids as on the way down and up there is no where or in fact no toilet facilities apart from the café area at the top. Free car park. Very busy. Recommend early morning. Audio equipment available

Great for a family day out and photo session. For the the more adventurous a hike along the cliffs afterwards is spectacular

Heard about this site from a friend and had it on my sites to see when visiting Ireland. Didn't realize it would be so crowded but the hundreds of people didn't deter from the beauty. I felt a type of energy there and it was quite amazing. The rock formations are truly a sight to behold. You don't have to... More

Interesting view of nature with 40,000 basalt columns. Windy and cold at the North Atlantic. You can walk down or take a shuttle bus down and back up for a very nominal fee. You do not have to enter the building to pay for anything,

This is Ireland at its best, truly breathtaking scenery, with an interesting and thought provoking legend, of Two Giants. There are many land marks to search for, that susport the legend of one Irelands first inhabitants, the Giant Finn mcCool and the Battle for control of the Stone bridge connecting Scotland and Ireland. Fun for all the family, some parts... More

Every picture I have seen of the Giant's Causeway is very deceiving because often times it looks barren. This was not the case when we visited. It was extremely crowded and hard to get a picture without tons of tourists. The rock formations themselves are neat and I am glad we've seen them but I'm not sure I would return.... More

If you are in this area of Scotland - you must take a trip to the Giant's Causeway. The views are just spectacular! You will get a audio guide which is very good. (TIP: Take your own headphones or earbuds!). There are many paths to follow and we took the wrong one, so were a bit confused when our audio... More

This is one busy place. Even with the threats of heavy showers, it was packed. There is a bus for those who need it down to the pillars, if you walk its maybe a kilometre each way. Possibly worth it when its going to rain as I got soaked!. If you watch the animated story of Finn McCool and you... More

A must see for anyone in Ireland. Fascinating history, geology and stories. We went with a group tour (paddy wagon) which made it much easier to get around.
