There is a convenient parking deck at no cost and then a long walk down to the causeway. Once there, you can wander around the rocks and see all kinds of cool geological formations. The park closes at 7PM, so plan carefully, especially if you’re...More

Had not visited Giants Causeway since 2001. Even though the causeway can be visited free, we took park & ride from Bushmills and got £1.5 discount and enjoyed audio guide. Important to wear a good pair of walking/light hiking shoes if you want to walk...More

This was an amazing site! Definitely wear comfortable/hiking shoes if you want to climb around the basalt columns. Worth the walk to the site and back, and take plenty of pictures!

Amazing what nature can create over time. Suggest you walk down (quite easy on a paved path/road) and take the shuttle bus back up to the visitor center.

We stopped at the Giants Causeway on May 20th. It was lovely and worth the effort to walk to the site and back. The visitors centre was busting at the seams though, that did detract from the experience however it could not be helped.

Worth a look but somewhat disturbing that adults and children need to crawl all over something to appreciate it.

We stopped here as part of our day trip to Northern Ireland. The walk down to the Causeway is very pretty, although I would definitely say wrap up warm as it is exceptionally cold when the wind is blowing due to it being so exposed!...More

Whole place is a machine for taking money of you!, park and ride from Blackbush, pay car park, pay bus, pay entry, pay another bus. 5 mins on tripping hazard waiting to happen. No normal priced gifts. Driving closer is no better car park, entry...More

Reasonable walk down hill to site. Bus back up hill is a given for the not so young. Drawback is good weather draws too many tourists who climb all over the rocks like ants. Gift shop too expensive.

We were on a tour so I am afraid I am unable to answer your question. I sympathise totally about parking fees.

They’ll make you pay to park during opening hours, I don’t think they make too many allowances for such like.
