“A Bucket List Item”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

I can still close my eyes and see the sea ravaging the ancient rocks and can hear the waves crash upon them. This is one of my favorite places. If you're expecting a lot of hoopla, perhaps nature visits aren't for you. We parked and used the visitor center and I recommend this for the tourists unfamiliar with the area. The cartoon video is informative. If you take the time to read about the area in the center, you can also become better educated. Traveling isn't just about getting a snapshot to post of Facebook to prove you've been somewhere. I dare you to feel the majesty of this place. I've seen alot of people complain on here about it being a rip-off. However, you get what you put in.

The employees were very helpful in helping us find another obscure site, the Dark Hedges, from Giant's Causeway. The cafeteria also provided great food.

Giant's Causeway is a place I'd definitely go back to see...and I hope I can soon. I just need to save more money for a plane ticket!

“Amazing natural wonder!!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Probably one of the coolest natural wonders I have had the privilege of visiting. Amazing!!! Rock columns that look like a pack of straws. Well worth the time & effort to visit!

“Remarkable and gorgeous”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

How fantastic to see such an incredibly unusual geological feature, so unspoiled and so accessible. Very impressed. Also glad you can still walk on the stones.

Scenic place with a great visitor center where you can find all the information about it. It;s free if you want to go for a walk , but it is worth to pay 20pounds for a family (parking is included in it) as kids will like the visitor center. Definitely a family friendly place, well worth a visit!

“Better than I expected”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I wasn't expecting to enjoy visiting the Giant's causeway - not sure why - but on a stunning day I found it to be a great spot to visit. The geological anomalies were interesting and you can climb up and go along the top to get a birds eye view. I think you could walk across the top and come down and avoid having to go through the visitors information centre - (where you pay).
There is a bus to take people who need it to take you there and back and audio tour guides available in many languages.
