    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Town Hall building is situated in the pedestrianised centre of Coleraine.

    Temporary museum exhibitions take place here during the year.

    When the weather's fine, you can even see some skateboarders showing their skills right in front of the building.

    Use the local Tourist Information services

    To save a whole lot of agro later, I always check into the local tourism info offices for bus/train times to wherever,plus to get ideas of places to visit,and of course, the ever required fridge magnet.
    A whole host of free information is always there, and it seems mad not to use this service to me.

    Open all year round, Coleraine Tourist Information Centre provides a first class service for visitors and locals alike.

    The Giants Causeway Co Antrim,Northern Ireland

    by richard4 Updated May 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My main reason to go to Northern Ireland in the first place was to see the Causeway.
    The scenic impact that greets you is better than any guide book,it was great,the weather was boiling,and I took loads of photos.
    The area around the Causeway is not too large so you can walk all the way round,but there is of course the possibility of injury if you fall over in amongst the rocks that aren't going to say sorry.
    There is a cliff top path atop the Causeway which offers stunning views of the entire area,care must be taken however when taking the stairway down the cliff as it is very steep and the steps small,tripping over is not recommended.

    GETTING THERE
    Buses from Coleraine go to the Causeway in approx 2 hour intervals,the journey time is around 40 minutes,and the bus service no currently is the 172.
    At the time of travel,a return to the Causeway is £4.90.
