It's a long trek from the visitor centre down to the rocks, but you can get a shuttle bus down there and back. Obviously coach loads of people are regularly disgorged to visit the sight so don't expect to be able to take pikkies on...More

Traveling with a toddler but still really enjoyed seeing this incredible landscape. Was stunning and enjoyed by all the family.

It was a fun experience due to the fact we took the guided tour which gave us the history of the place and pointed out the various spots on the Causeway. It is much smaller than you would think from pictures. It is very windy...More

A visit to the Giant's Causeway lends itself to the mythological tales of giants and magic. However, entrance to the Centre itself is overpriced, catering staff are surly and the dry tasteless scones are an embarrassment. Visitors can access the stones via the public road...More

When you arrive, you park at the top of the hill, adjacent to the Visitor's Centre. It's very busy so there are staff directing cars to parking spaces. The parking fee is included in the ticket price. Next you go inside and buy your ticket,...More

The view is scenic in short. And you will see the famous rock formation. The area is quite big if you plan to hike to the summit, do Budget half a day may be. I took a local tour guide but didn't find his presentation...More

Interesting formation. Good thing there is a bus from entrance because it’s a long hike particularly going back which is uphill. Clearly worth seeing even when raining.

We were lucky enough to arrive mid-morning when it had actually stopped raining and the stones were dry enough to walk on. Sturdy shoes are advisable because the stones are naturally worn and uneven. There were not huge crowds of people - apparently in the...More

This place is stunning, amazing what Nature can do. Make sure you have good shoes ( I had hiking boots) as the stones can be slippery. Walk around, you can spend well over an hour wondering around I didn't enter the visitors center as my...More

Honestly it's easy. We did it 2 nights ago. Get there after 7pm - we got there at 7:30pm and park anywhere you like. All the National Trust people will be gone by then and the Visitor Centre will be closed. Then walk down... More
