We came here on my birthday.The Giant's Causeway was on our bucket list and we weren't disappointed. Having read the reviews about the visitors centre we wanted to avoid the expense.A helpful tourist told us to park at the Nook. We planned to go in for a drink afterwards but it remained shut. We walked through the tunnel and down... More

Absolutely beautiful. My 9 year old said it was the most amazing place she ever saw. Audio guides made it even more interesting fot the children. Included in the fairly steep price.

Incredible Rock Formations! There is a shuttle bus available at a very reasonable price which travels into and out of the "causeway." We also did the "rope bridge" on the way. It sounds scary, however it is very safe, well maintained, and there is a competent guide on duty. This was a one-day excursion (12 Hours) from Dublin. It included... More

Well worth a visit, lovely marked path and very interesting basalt columns! I'd set aside at least 2 hours for the walk including a few stops for photographs etc. Set aside longer if you want to do the full tour.

First of all, access to the Causeway itself is FREE if you simply take the Ulster Way and avoid the visitors centre (there's a sign in there to tell you that, this isn't a deception) If you want to pay £10 a head to go to the visitors centre, you certainly can but it hasn't set my world on fire...

While the Giant's Causeway is a must-see location for Northern Ireland, just keep your expectations in check a little - it's not quite as vast (and certainly not as empty) as the photos may imply. The weather was a little miserable when we were there, but we still enjoyed it - there are three little areas to see and it... More

Being asked on three separate occasions to show our tickets on the way out was not a great customer service experience. Once on the way in is enough and what are they going to do to you if you loose the tickets? It´s all a bit threatening. It´s a bucket list place so we had to cross it off the... More

Rugged and beautiful. Be sure to pack for the weather, because anything that's coming in from the ocean is going to hit you full in the face. Be prepared to walk - there is a shuttle bus (which I'd recommend for the return to the visitor's center), but walking out to the viewing areas is much preferable. Some of the... More

Giant's Causeway is one of those must see destinations when visiting Ireland. The naturally formed columns are mesmerizing and fun to walk on. The view of the sea and of Scotland in the distance is amazing. You can see how the legend of giants using the causeway to cross to Scotland was started. My sister and I chose to hike... More

You can visit Giant's Causeway for free, if you don't use the car parking and you walk for about two kilometres. Otherwise the cost for entering the Visitor Centre is too expensive and that's 9£ per person for nothing, unless you want to buy something but I advise you don't because everything is overpriced. In the 9£, even not included... More
