We got a lift down there from the lady who owns the B&B we were staying at which saved us a bundle. They charge a packet for parking because they're can't charge entry. The parking charges cover going into the visitors centre (which makes it an expensive cafe and toilet building). However... I suggest not walking directly down to the... More

Skip the visitor center, grab an audio guide and get out there to see the Causeway. There is a paved sidewalk or bus option that winds downhill to the coast. You are allowed to walk on the rocks at your own risk. The visitor center does have a good cartoon on the myth.

Well we learned to save a bit by parking about 100 yards away; over at the Railroad tourist depot. Outdoors. Then we walked directly to the road leading down to the causeway. We did get lazy on the way back and paid for a ride back on the shuttle. Loved the Basalt, geology, scenery. I'd go again

A must see while in Ireland! We started at the Visitors Center and walked down the pathway vs taking the shuttle. We even took a picnic lunch with us and had lunch on the causeway, a great way to relax and enjoy it's natural beauty. We got the map and audio tour at the Visitors Center, an excellent tool to...

Spectacular sights of the basalt column formations. Read about the history of the formations in the Information Centre. Very user friendly for all ages. Walks easy. Transport available.

We paid the money before we realised how far it was to walk to get to the rocks and then were told we would need to wait for a bus. (We are not able to walk the distance especially down and up the steep incline), and then another £2 each for a bus ticket. The natural stones are interesting to... More

Quite the hike to get to the rock area, but worth every step! They do have transportation, but it is 5 each way! Stretch your legs, take your time and walk. The views are amazing along your way. The audio tour is a nice way to take in all the details around you. The rock formations are incredible. The pictures... More

The causeway is about 60miles from Belfast. There are a number of tours you can get at a reasonable price, we decided to hire a car for the day. I can recommend Enterprise car rentals who were helpful and efficient. We hired an Astra at £44 for the day. An easy drive up to the causeway stopping for breakfast on... More

I don't think it is worth the drive all the way north just to see Giant's Causeway. You have many other beautiful coastline views. The rock formations are interesting but nothing so amazing. They are rocks. I think this area is a little hyped up. Unlike Cliffs of Moher, which were stunning, this area did not live up to all... More
