We booked McComb's tour bus trip up the Antrim Coast and stopped here as one of our locales. The path down to the rope bridge is a nice little walk with some charming coastal views. We chose not to cross the bridge itself (an additional fee), but just get out and stretch our legs. They did have a small gift... More

Just back from this experience and it was fantastic! The walk to and from the Rope Bridge is beautiful - lovely scenery. Some people were taking very small children across aged about 3/4, which in my opinion, is too young and very dangerous. When the wind is high, as it was on the 13th April, it is difficult enough for... More

Amazing views from the walk and the bridge. The bridge attendant was not controlling the time people were spending on the bridge, resulting in the group ahead of us dinking around for 10min on it and then us getting rushed through with only one picture. Otherwise great place. Note - fee is only to go on the bridge. By the... More

My friend and I booked a day-trip to Northern Ireland and crossing the Rope Bridge was the best experience of the trip. I really enjoyed the feeling of being there after I crossed the bridge and even if the rain was quite strong while I was on the other side of the bridge, it really worth to see that stunning... More

Visited the place in Feb 2014 a lil offseason and luckily I got sun shine by my side. Pleasant and very beautiful, specially if you are there on a sunny day.

Well worth a see. Not scary or daunting but very scenic. Arguably better than the causeway. Would highly recommend it

I think we had to walk about 1km from the parking lot going to the bridge. I was with my friends and we has 2 kids and a baby with us. We first used a stroller then there were steps going down leading to the bridge so we had to leave if there. The coast was just amazing! You're gonna... More

What we thought would be "just a bridge" ended up being one of the highlights of our trip! We got an early start on a Tuesday morning and visited the bridge when there was hardly anyone around - that was the best part! The walk to the bridge was serene and just gorgeous with views of cliffs, the ocean, islands... More
