There is a parking and the Visitor Centre has a good introduction of the Giant`s Causeway that you will visit later.

Enjoy the video and exhibits in the visitor center. They are worth the extra time to read and explore. We viewed the Causeway first, but in retrospect I think we would have enjoyed it more with the background information that the visitor center provided.

The displays in the visitor center are reasonably interesting. However, the audio guide was far more informative regarding the formation of the Giant's Causeway.

What was my turnoff to this place? Lack of signage; so many people; sporadically unhelpful personnel? If you're going with a group to socialize, a school trip, this could be a fun place. But having to ask to figure out the lay of the land...More

We just wanted to park, and you still need to pay the full price of the entrance ticket and all the stuff inside! Its a rip-off! I just bought one ticket so that I don't have to park far away. Too expensive for the price.

We were expecting something much larger when the tour guide told us the Giant's Causeway looked like spectacular cigarettes being offered to the gods. It was a bit of a letdown after having experienced the Cliffs of Moher.

Avoid this centre, park on the road and walk on the public footpaths to the Giant's Causeway to avoid the scandalous £10.50 charge they want for this white elephant.

A lovely modern building with very pleasant staff. Nice little cafe area. Lots of National Trust souveniers as this is one of their sites. The Giants Causeway is free to enter as long as you do not use any of the National Trust amenities if...More

Without this huge visitor center, the actual site itself would be overflowing with tourists. There are a few displays of interest and a decent (but too short) film, but the biggest draws seem to be the huge gift shop and restrooms. One's ticket must be...More

I don't know what I can add to the answer you have received as I agree with the other reviewer. I would NOT want to push a wheelchair down nor up that slope. But the bus is a wonderful alternative. I believe the beauty and... More
How much time would you recommend we give ourselves to visit the Giant's Causeway?
6 March 2016|
Response from nibloke2013 |
Best to give yourselves 4-5 hours to really experience everything there is, including the visitors centre.
Are the bathrooms and cafe here open to only those who buy a ticket? Or are they also open to the public?

Yes. It seemed that way to me. I paid for the experienced and discovered that you could get in free on the right hand side of the centre. I left the tour group after ten minutes as I was cringing...my friend stayed and loved... More
