It is a 20 minute walk from the car park to the rope bridge.  You may get to see some of the coastal wildlife on the way.  Build up your courage for the leap of faith to cross the rope bridge! Do not worry, the rope bridge is well maintained!

Giant’s Causeway tour

Our guide, Leo, really made this trip for us. He was extremely knowledgable and, in my opinion played the best music. We took his advice and did the Black Cab Tour in Belfast and thoroughly enjoyed learning the conflicted history of this city. The Causeway and the other sites were wonderful, as well. I highly recommend making the trip up to Northern Ireland, if possible. This was our fourth bus tour with this company and, by far, this was our favorite. Thank you for the wonderful trip, Leo!

Giants Causeway Tour / Irish Day Tours

It was a really good tour and you could see a lot of Ireland in one day. I would recommend this tour especially for travelers, who haven’t much time to visit all the places for a few days. The bus driver was amazing. He told us a lot of story and also some jokes:D Moreover he did with us a quiz to make the ride a little bit more interesting. To come to a end, I can absolutely recommend this tour with “Irish day tours”:)

Excellent day with Kevin, our guide, driver and Irish historian. 
The Causeway was amazing, Carrick- a- Rede Rope bridge fun and picturesque, the Dark Hedges and coastline beautiful and Belfast a perfect last stop. We had a pint at the Crown Pub ! 
Lunch at The Giants Barn Cafe had a delicious lunch menu including Irish stew and a steak pie that were both perfect :)
Long day but evenly paced and totally enjoyable.

Giant’s Causeway is well worth the time

The trip to Giants Causeway was full of stunning sights and stories. The trip was well-paced and included other impressive sights along the way. The guide was very competent and helpful in customizing elements for all. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Day trip to Northern Ireland, Giant’s Causeway.

Loved this trip. Everything went according to the website’s description. We had a wonderful guide, Jennifer, who gave us history lessons along the way as well as playing Irish music. We went to the GiantsCauseway, and a few other stops. We had plenty of time to explore all locations. Thanks for a wonderful day.
