I was blown away by how popular this place is. I knew it would be, but not to the scale experienced. However, the National Trust are very well prepared and everything and everyone moves through smoothly. The visitor centre really is excellent and can absorb...More

There truly is no review that can capture the experience of Giant’s causeway. You just need to make it a destination on your trip to Ireland.

Our third visit here did not disappoint. Place is beautiful. Be aware of the weather and bundle up. Usually windy. Whatever Mother Nature brings it is well worth it. Get organized before you go about where to park, depending on the time of the year....More

Just FYI: it's free to enter for National Trust members. It's also free to the public, your entrance fee only covers the tourist centre, I.e. gift shop, cafe and toilets. If you are in Northern Ireland, this is an absolute MUST! It's literally breath taking...More

An absolute wonder to see, it's very reasonable to visit from a cost stand point and just go. I was really surprised they allowed visitors to climb onto the rocks which you're just 1 wave away from going to visit Scotland. But they did keep...More

The hotel is now owned by the National Trust and has security with a chain vetting hotel customer access when we visited. There was parking down the toad in the narrow gauge train station for about £6. Hope this helps.
