A National Trust property which basically consist of a 10-15 minute walk along the cliffs to the wooden rope bridge, a wait of anything up to 10 minutes at the top of the bridge and then a quick 30 second walk across the rope bridge. I actually thought standing on the cliff edges of the island was more scary than... More

Ive been quite surprised to see how small the bridge is. It looks nothing like in pictures. Waste of money we have been queing in the rain for good 20 mins before allowed to cross..... Big dissapointment !!!!

We were lucky to get here early in the day before the tour buses and crowds arrived. Opening hours are Mon- Sun inclusive 10 am to 6pm The car park is free and there are plenty of spaces.Entrance fee to cross the bridge is £5.90 each. There is a walk of about a 1km to the bridge and then you... More

Me and my wife visited here last week while on holiday it turns out it was on the hottest day of the year according to the car park attendant, parking was free as we'll, it was a small walk from the car park and was up and down some fairly steep slopes and steps but we'll worth it, walking over...

We were the first ones there on a picture perfect day. Sun was shining, ocean was sparkling! I took pictures while my husband crossed the bridge... I am afraid of heights. He loved it! Said the views from the island across the bridge were incredible! Well worth the time and admission.

On Saturday 3 pm expect to have about an hour wait time to cross the bridge. Once you get there you will see that the bridge itself is quiet pathetic and the views from shore are not less good from the views from the “island”. You can walk to the bridge and back, take all the photos and skip the... More

Although quite pleasant, this falls into that so so category. Parking is free (as it should be) and its also free to walk the mainland trail to the bridge and take in the rugged and beautiful coast. Of course this can be seen all along the coast in this area. To cross the bridge will cost an adult 6 pound... More

Although I'm not a fan of heights, I really wanted to walk across this rope bridge. It's a lovely 1 km walk to get to the bridge. We were there on a gorgeous day with lots of sunshine and no wind, which were the perfect conditions for the walk as well as for our bridge crossing. The bridge hangs about... More

We visited the rope bridge today, the weather was typical of Northern Ireland. It started out bright and sunny but as we walked along the path to the rope bridge, a heavy rain storm started. We had a 10 year old, 3 year old and a baby in a buggy. I wouldn't advise anyone to go with a pram or... More

It is best to arrive early ahead of the tour buses. Otherwise, you spend some time waiting in line to walk across the rope bridge. Only allow so many people on the bridge at a time. I actually thought the length of the bridge would be longer. From the parking area, it's about a mile walk and up hill on... More
