A great place to better understand the geology and history of this interesting attraction. Take advantage of the great information and the human history of the people who have inhabited this part of Northern Ireland.

Wonderful and magical place to visit, even on a cold and wet December day when the tide is high and surf crashing on the Giant rocks. Don't let the weather prevent you from visiting, as this time of the year is so dramatic and no crowds!

I know its a relatively new attraction - and they need to recoup costs, but if you go with a group or family this + parking can make it an expensive trip for what it is. And I fear this cost is putting a lot of people off availing of the facilities and information from the center?

You have to stop here before heading to the causeway. It's a great way to get a better understanding about how this natural phenomenon developed.

Lots of useful information in the visitor centre. Very warm after cold walk to the Causeway. Many good offers to tempt us to buy momentos Great coffee shop with excellent Irish Stew for sale.

We are a senior couple. We took the shuttle bus from the visitor centre to the viewing area however on a nice day, the walk would have been very manageable and quite pleasant given the wonderful scenery. The visitor centre is very large with lots of souvenirs however your own photos are your best souvenirs of this very good attraction.

Well worth a visit and given the investment and cost of maintaining this exhibition the entry price is justified. However visitors should not be misled into thinking that the fee includes visiting the Giants Causeway which apparently remains free to visit. This centre us a huge improvement the previous one and will stand the test if time for many more... More

£9 for an adult to walk through the national trust shop and geography lesson on the causeway. Just walk past the new building through the tunnel to the right for free and walk down the path to the causeway. It is not chargeable to enter. Found a member of staff abrupt when enquiring about the price. Causeway was awesome, £9... More

This was a belated Christmas treat, and we were so impressed by the whole experience. We were warmly greeted on a freezing January Saturday by a parking attendant, who directed us into the we'll camouflaged visitor centre. A delightful lady on reception explained the visitor centre and that we could do the self guided or guided walk. We opted for... More
