Stopped off at the Giant's Causeway. Visited the Centre and walked along the coast for a few miles. The views were amazing and the audio guides educational , yet entertaining with Irish wit! Make sure you wear adequate footwear, especially is it is wet, as...More

We really enjoyed visiting here although it was very busy! Incredible scenery and completely unique although I do think the advertising pictures make it appear bigger than it actually is. Probably wouldn't go back as have seen it now but a lovely day out!

I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful scenery of this coastline. The farms and hills surrounding the causeway are beautiful and the coastline cliffs and rock formations are stunning. Not a difficult walk but not easy on the causeway. Wear gym...More

The rocks are a very interesting phenomenon but a £10.50 entry fee through the visitor centre is excessive. There were big crowds there. The entry fee includes an audio guide which didn't work very well and had a stage Oirish idiot guide that I had...More

Advantage has been taken with the number of tourists wanting to see the area and there is a Visitors Centre with food and.....a huge gift shop. It is modern and well done though we aren't sure about the movie on the end wall - maybe...More

I absolutely had to go to giants causeway when I was In Belfast as it's one of the top things to see in Northern Ireland. But...... it's sooooo crowed! You barely get a nice spot alone somewhere to enjoy this beauty of nature!

Overcrowded with fellow tourists, but take the self guided audio tour and spend some time enjoying the view. Take care and watch your step if you decide to climb on the rocks. Too many people jostling for the pillars make for a challenging visit.

I walked down the lonnng hill slope from the Visitors Centre to the place where the shuttle bus drops off riders. It sure was worth a GBP to ride the shuttle bus back up the hill. I did not join folks walking the lonnnnnger trail...More

I really loved the geology but wished we had visited during off hours to avoid the crowds. We took the advice of several others and parked on the road just east of the entrance and didn't pay the 10 £ entrance fee per person. We...More

We'll be driving from Belfast to Galway and want to detour by Giant's Causeway en route. Is this feasible? Would we also have time to do the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge? We have a hotel booked in Galway so we need to be there by evening. Thanks.

That is a very lengthy agenda. We drove from Belfast to Rope Bridge and Giant's Causeway and had reservations in Westport and that was a full day. You might want to scale back a bit. From Castlebar to Galway is another... More
