We went to the Giant's Causeway before the opening of the visitor'center to avoid the tourist car. We were almost alone and it was a perfect moment. It' a must go in Ireland and when you're there, you understand why. After visiting the giant's causeway,...More

A beautiful view of earth. We decided to drive up there. Drive was good. The tourist center is not expensive. We had a great walking tourist. Jessica was great and funny. I recommend this place as a must see if you are in ireland.

Yes, it's geologically interesting, but for me not much to get thrilled over. I preferred the Cliffs of Moher more- far more dramatic. This was interesting on a small scale, lots of unique rock formations - if that's your thing. There's a cafe in the...More

A national trust property that gets extremely busy as the day goes on so better to go early in the day or later in the evening. We arrived at 8.00am. Visitor centre was closed of course but very quiet. Quite a long walk down to...More

A must see for all - especially geology / geography buffs. Amazing polygonal paving - a sight that can only appreciated if seen and walked upon. Giant's Causeway - an absolute wonder!

Hmmm, as geologists - who have seen our share of columnar jointing - the massive rock outcrop is worth visiting. But try to go early or after the visitors' center has closed. Understandably, the National Trust seems to be trying to turn this awesome place...More

Honestly it's easy. We did it 2 nights ago. Get there after 7pm - we got there at 7:30pm and park anywhere you like. All the National Trust people will be gone by then and the Visitor Centre will be closed. Then walk down... More

We drove from Tubercurry, County Mayo, to the Giant's Causeway and it took about 4 hours - if you are considering visiting Carrick-a-rede, I would suggest an early start. I also suggest the park and ride at Bushmills, close... More
