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.Related to:

The Giants Causeway Co Antrim,Northern Ireland
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.
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.Related to:
