Drove up to Northern Ireland, UK for a chance to hop, skip and jump those hexagonal stones. When I got to the visitor centre, I spent 3EU to take the bus cause I was lazy to walk it. The good thing though is I had so much energy to climb the basalt columns. It's amazing how they're stacked together! I... More

It was a cold blustery day on our trip to Giant's Causeway. We enjoyed just walking around and watching the waves crashing on the sea, and listening to the explanations on the mystery o the Giant!!

As a first timer to the causeway, I thought it was visually stunning to see. The rock columns are beautiful and just the trek down from the visitors centre was relaxing. Now here is the advice you should abide by.... We got there at 9am on the dot. Along with maybe 10 other tourists the causeway was empty and beautiful,... More

A guided tour is included with admission price and I would recommend it. It's as breathtaking as the photos. It's a good hike down and back to the visitor's center. The Visitors Center is very new and functional, with a shop and interactive displays.

Just that this would be much grander than it was. Maybe we should have spent more time learning about it. Great hiking experience for kids.

Grabbed a quick visit to the Causeway whilst passing. Steep pricing for a visit of two hours plus another £8 for bus to sit and back. Well worth it tho for the amazing views and lovely sunshine. The freak of nature rises from the sea and covers a large area so you can move from one to another to get... More
