Wonderful Views

Don't let the height scare you, it looks much worse than it is. It is well worth visiting the area just for the wonderful cliff side views of the water.

In the freezing cold we walked across the rope bridge to take in the scenery. Felt like I was on a photo shoot with Westlife... lol. Beautiful to say the least.

Its a good walk to get to the bride with hills and steps along the way, you need to be in a fit state for the walk. There is a little wait to walk across the bridge as they only allow 6 people at a time and going one way. The staff are friendly are ensure that noone hold up... More

We came across this place by accident when looking for Giant's Causeway and we are glad we did. The scenery is amazing and well, just walking over the rope bridge was, well............I have never done anything like it before!

You will get your exercise hiking to the bridge. But there are so many photo opportunities along the way, it's easy to stop and snap a few pictures while catching your breath. At one time this was the spot of a fishing operation. The fishermen built the bridge in order to get the fish back to an ice house....NOT to... More

I'm only giving this an average score just because its a rope bridge and nothing else there. BUT the views are fantastic and for that I would give it an excellent. If you take your national trust card its free. Staff are chatty and friendly.

This is actually a review of Larry Bane, not Carrick-a rede. Larry Bane is well worth a visit. it is FREE , well at the moment at least. It is a bit of a walk down a steepish set of steps. Larry Bane itself is basically a ruin on a rocky outcrop. Small stone inlet/beach at the base. Great views... More

We stopped in here to get some breath taking views of Northern Ireland. You have to hike about 10 minutes out to the bridge, but once you get there it is lovely. We had to wait about 2 minutes for others to cross the bridge for others to come back across, and then the attendant led us across. It was... More

The vista is so scenic and the bridge walk a great life experience. Do not miss doing this. It is a bit of walk, yet doable at comfortable pace.

We got to the bridge early in the morning, in fact we were the only ones there. The attendant eventually came and wasn't sure if we could walk across because of the wind, but after testing the wind with his little thingey, he proceeded to let us across. It was an awesome experience..a long ways down but the scenery is... More
