On bucket list. Exceeded expectations. Parked at NT car park easily as was 6pm and visitor centre was shut. Walked down to the Causeway. Pretty quiet. Expect us busy during 'opening hours'. Great fun exploring and taking photos. Would have liked to see visitors centre and maybe take the audio tour, but if you do some research beforehand you'll know... More

After seeing so many pictures in different travel books of the Giant's Causeway, it was truly a "wow, I'm really here" place. It was too difficult to try to understand the unusual rock formations, so just became a kid again and had a great time hopping and climbing and marveling at the beauty and uniqueness of the area. Loved all... More

There are 2 parts to this review: 1. The views are = 5+ Stunningly beautiful. 2. The visitor's center is very good at selling 'ticket's' to the area. I went on a group trip so I didn't know of the 'hidden' costs of parking, restrooms. The visitor's center doesn't actually have anything interesting to me - I don't care for... More

Giants causeway is an essential part of bucket list therefore one has to do it. There are multiple day your companies in Dublin who provide this tour. The access to the site is free and although it may appear overhyped, it nonetheless offers an unique experience. There is a bus to and fro to the site but the walk is... More

The Giants Causeway is a UNESCO World Heritage site so naturally one would want to visit it when touring Northern Ireland. However this site disappoints in a number of ways, much as do other so named sites. The crowds are immense. I would question if there is any time when the parking lot isn't full of tour buses and the... More

Enjoyed a good couple of hours at The Giants Causeway. Decided to take the free guided tour and this was really very interesting. Got loads more out of the visit by doing this. Full 5***** for the super National Trust Volunteer leading the this little tour - he was delightful and very knowledgable. Lots of walks along the coastline from... More

..it is the sheer awesomeness of nature: naturally placed stones that start higher than 18' (don't quote me on the height. they were TALL) that descended into the ocean. it rained/poured when we got there, but, in true Irish mystique, the clouds blew out when we journeyed down to the shoreline. Fascinating! and memorable.. a piece of trivia: used for... More

Always wanted to visit the Giants causeway and was surprised that it's not that large of an area. The place was packed with people so it was hard to get a good photo without a random person in it. My kids loved listening to the stories on the audio device and watching the dolphins swim by. We only stayed about... More

If you are coming to Northern Ireland you have to come here, the pictures don't do it justice and I think it might be one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen in my life!!

It is difficult to ignore the only UNESCO World heritage in Northern Ireland. However if you have visited basaltic outcrops before you don't see anything new. You will pay about ~P10 for parking or can try to find free space on pablic road. A bus from visitor center to the site costs 1 pound.
