Such a gem. At first I was a little underwhelmed, but as soon as I got into the rocks I was so happy to finally be there. There are guides on the rocks if you have any problems. If you avoid parking in the main...More

Our guide recommended taking a hike along the top of the cliffs leading to the causeway, even though there is a bus you can ride down for only a pound. This was wonderful, and gave us great views of the ocean and coast, as well...More

A must see for any visitor to Belfast or Northern Ireland, this was part of a Game of Thrones tour (reviewed separately). We bypassed the visitor centre (though you can choose to spend time here) and took the bus (£1?) down to the Causeway, saving...More

Beautiful and very interesting location, bus available to bring down to the site but the walk down to the rock formations is spectacular especially on a sunny day. Can see for miles - worth the trip - nice for a picnic

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
