We visited here in January but have been before so didn't spend much time in the visitor centre. We spent about two hours and walked one of the longer loop trails. It was a great walk and you get right onto the famous rock formations. The trail is well marked with just a few short sharp climbs. Two hours is... More

I have visited the Giant’s Causeway dozens of times over the years but the experience on January 2nd was the best ever. We arrived on foot having walked along the cliff path from Dunseverick castle. The views of the Northern Coastline, Rathlin Island and neighbouring Scotland were spectacular. As the walk nears the Giant’s Causeway the famous columnar structures begin... More

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
