...is what you'll need to complete the task of walking across this bridge 100 feet above the rocks and sea below. Tip: have a friend stand on the next ridge and catch a photo of you crossing. If you're going to take a selfie on the bridge itself, hold onto your device tightly! The bridge sways and usually you'll have... More

The pictures of the Rope Bridge look pretty scary but the scariest part was the steps leading down to it--the bridge itself is pretty secure and not wobbly as I feared. It was all worth it--the 1/2 mile hike to the bridge itself is full of amazing views and worth the whole trip; the views from the bridge and then... More

Having just visited the Giant's Causeway earlier in the day, we found the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge a little disappointing. We had not been to it before and were really looking forward to it. You have about a 20 minute walk from the start point down towards the bridge and sturdy footwear is definitely required. We had a warm dry day,... More

The walk towards the bridge is scenic starting from the parking lot. When we reach the bridge it is a bit scary and rush of adrenaline picks up. It a wonderful adventurous walk on the rope bridge to the other small island. They left 8-9 people walk one at a time. However, just wished the bridge has twenty more steps.... More

The weather was beautiful when I crossed the bridge making the views even more stunning. It is a lovely walk but not for the infirm as there are lots of steps. I do think that the cost to cross the bridge charged by the National Trust is a bit of a rip off, it really can't cost a lot to... More

This is a very peaceful and calming place. After crossing the bridge the view is great and the breeze coming off the sea is nice. I've been twice before and hope to make it back.

My husband and I took our 12 year old daughter to this destination on our way up to the Giants Causeway and had a wonderful time. Breathtaking views and photo opportunities and a breath-catching experience to cross the rope bridge. Easy walk down to the bridge, a harder climb back up which is why I gave it 4 stars. If... More

Active walking tour with scenic views. They have a good mix of sea and land views. It is a wonderful spot to... More

I wasn't sure what to expect with this attraction. My honest thought was I'd turn up and somewhere next to the car park would be a rickety old bridge to cross and that would be it. The walk from the pay kiosk to the bridge takes about 20 mins and the views are beautiful. The path is accessible by wheelchair... More

We had to queue for about 20 mins to get across but the crossing is well managed. The actual crossing was slightly scarier than I was anticipating but it was fine for all four of us. Views on the other side are worth it even on the slightly hazey day we visited. Glad we did it when we did as... More
