I’ve been to the Giant’s Causeway many times. The stones are epic and a great wonder. Tour guides or self audio tours are good, but they’re just the same writings from pamphlets regurgitated at a premium price. It used to be easy to park just...More

This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Full of history, or mythology, and I think it will be much more interesting if you’re a fan of Geology. They have wonderful scenery, with great and friendly tour guides too, so...More

Great place to visit really enjoyed it but its a lot smaller that the photographs lead you to believe. Also best visited out of season.

First visited with family in 1960 and still holds that special natural charm that is breathtaking mother nature at its most wondrous. Miss this on a visit to the Antrim Coast and you have failed to grasp Northern Irelands magnetic charm at its best.

I've visited Giant's Causeway in an incredible sunny day!! What it's very amazing. I've got a walking tour with Barry and this worth it. He's told us how the rocks were formed and how the giant's causeway was "designed" by mother nature.

We were disappointed that the young man selling tickets tried too hard to sell us a National Trust membership and omitted to tell us that the ticket allowed free audio use and also a guided tour if that was required. We didn’t check our tickets...More
