Although interesting and informative audio track was used, I just found actually seeing it was worth less of my time than it took to drive there, park and walk to the attraction. Likely just too crowded for me to find it enjoyable.

There truly is no review that can capture the experience of Giant’s causeway. You just need to make it a destination on your trip to Ireland.

The hotel is now owned by the National Trust and has security with a chain vetting hotel customer access when we visited. There was parking down the toad in the narrow gauge train station for about £6. Hope this helps.
