This is my second visit to this attraction, and quite frankly the National Trust has totally ruined it in every possible way. When I was there a few years ago, the only thing to pay for was the bus down to "The Stones" and the...More

By dumb luck we arrived on a June night as the visitor's center was closing. We caught the last bus out to Giant's Causeway. After spending some time there, we walked the 1km+ path uphill back to the parking lot. This was ideal in so...More

If you are in North Ireland this is a beautiful natural attraction and during the day is full of tourists, but it's worth it.

Everyone should go here at some point in their lives - no photo or picture could ever do it justice. Peaceful, interesting, serene, beautiful and fascinating. GO!

This site was such a unique place to visit; we were very happy that we came. We stopped in the Visitor's Center at the beginning and end - it isn't strictly necessary, but we enjoyed looking at the exhibits and buying fun souvenirs of our...More

We turned up during the day & it was heaving with visitors/coaches. They wanted £10 to park in the car park which gave access to the visitors centre. The Causeway is free access but there is nowhere else to park so we went back in...More

Visit the Giant's Causeway, you must! But if you have any sort of adventurous spirit or appreciation for nature, do NOT go in the middle of the day. My husband and I went to check it out in the early evening (around 7-8 pm). The...More

This place is beyond cool. A nice leisurely walk down to the causeway reveals some awesome views. A bus is available to take those with walking issues. The hike further along the causeway is worth it. Would recommend this stop for everyone.

We really enjoyed visiting here although it was very busy! Incredible scenery and completely unique although I do think the advertising pictures make it appear bigger than it actually is. Probably wouldn't go back as have seen it now but a lovely day out!

We'll be driving from Belfast to Galway and want to detour by Giant's Causeway en route. Is this feasible? Would we also have time to do the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge? We have a hotel booked in Galway so we need to be there by evening. Thanks.

That is a very lengthy agenda. We drove from Belfast to Rope Bridge and Giant's Causeway and had reservations in Westport and that was a full day. You might want to scale back a bit. From Castlebar to Galway is another... More

I don't think there is, there are plenty of tours there though from various companies in the city.
