I prefer to believe the folk tale of Finn McCool than that of lava cooling to form basalt towers.... Either way we had a FANTASTIC day here walking Along the cliffs, checking out the causeway, making a wish in the chair and trying on Finns...More

Be prepared to walk quite a distance from the car park. You do not have to pay to see this natural phenonemon - walk through the tunnel rather than going into the visitor centre. The red trail takes you on the high path looking down...More

Snow, wind and rain... probably a good day to choose because the site was less crowded! The staff were friendly and the walk to the area well planned. we saw what we had come to NI for. Got some great pictures too.

We arrived hoping to park elsewhere having read of the exorbitant rates the National Trust try to charge you for going to see something that requires very little maintenance on their part if they'd only left it alone! However, there's nowhere else to park if...More

We enjoyed roaming around the Giants Causeway immensely. A beautiful spot worth taking your time at. The trail was very easily navigated and scenic the entire walk. Breathtaking. We rented a car in Belfast and found the drive easy.

Had to pay £26.50 for a family ticket! far too expensive. You can only spend so much time here and to add to this you get an ignorant UIsterbus driver grunting at you for another £1 each way for the bus. He was so rude...More

The Causeway is an interesting location. The exhibition at the end is well worth checking out. We went in January and there was a steady flow of people visiting, I have heard it can get very busy in the summer.

Hi the car park is free if you are a member of the national trust. There is a cost if you want to do the tour or you can either walk down to Giants causeway for free or pay £1 for the bus ride.
