This place lives up to the hype and is well worth a visit. We arrived early and had the place pretty much to ourselves which I would recommend. The one pound bus ride back to the top is money well spent unless you are fit...More

We visited and could have stayed for hours. Very interesting and beautiful. Can be a strenuous experience. There are shuttles down to the causeway for an additional pound, or you can walk about a mile. The causeway goes on for two or three miles and...More

We walked down to the steps and the views were awesome. Lots of people around, so the pictures were hard to take.

great travel stop at a beautiful seaside location. View cliffs, rocky coast, and the wonderful result of a very unusual natural rock formation. Don't miss this on your travels to Northern Ireland

We visited Giant's Causeway on our trip around Ireland and found it to be one of the most interesting sites on our trip. The basalt column groupings extend along the coastline and there are many great paths for hiking up, down and aroud them. They...More

8.00 would be ok- it's about 10 or so minutes depending on pace to walk down to it. If you feel you are too early you could pop into the hotel and have dinner or a drink.
