Customer Travel Tip: When going to the Giants Causeway be sure to avoid the National Trust Park and Ride. Instead take public transport for a third the cost.

Liked: The town is very walkable and friendly.

Disliked: It seems most restaurants do not open until 9:00am so it is hard to get an early breakfast.

Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Giant's Causeway is well worth the trip, but not the £8.50 into the visitor center - take a wander along the cliffs and explore yourself rather than joining a tour.

Liked: Lots to see & do, good coastal walks & sights, Bushmill Distillery tour, good bus link along the Causeway Coastal path back to the other main sights.

Disliked: Nothing, apart from the wind up on the cliffs which can't be helped.
