So we made the trip out in the early afternoon and it was very busy. The overflow parking lot was about half full when we got there and more full when we left. It was a beautiful day and sunny which made everything better! There are areas you can walk to outside of the actual attraction that give you a... More

This is a lovely part of the coast to walk - the bridge is just over half a km from the car park on a path at the top of a cliff (protected by a wall/hedge). The cliffs are chalky and bright; the carrik-a-rede rock is a darked stone; and the bridge is good fun (steel cales supporting the foot... More

Not for the faint hearted but a challenge and you get a kick of getting over and back make sure it is not windy and do not have your hat or glasses on as they may be blown off

This was well worth a visit. A long walk though, so make sure to wear good shoes. We were wowed by the views. It was fabulous. Although the rope bridge was a little smaller than we expected.

Visited in August with my daughter and cousins from the US. The views around here are beautiful, I have been before and I like the attraction but my daughter was a bit underwhelmed by the length of the bridge!!! The only negative about this is the length of time we had to wait to get back.

We lucked out seeing being here on a beautiful day. There was no wait at 10am but when we departed an hour later, it was very crowded on the single lane entrance. If you drive along the Causeway and turn off scenic route after the bridge heading away from the Causeway and Bridge towards Belfast, you will get a great... More

I had seen pictures of this and put it as one of my priorities. It's good to do things that challenge you. We had to wait about half an hour to cross the bridge, but it was a lovely, sunny! day and the views were great. Quite breezy - so you might want a jacket. The bridge was a little... More

The walk to the rope is about 1km - I wouldn't recommend it for someone who isn't confident on their feet or gets out of breath! If the weather is good it is a must. The views are amazing, the history fascinating. The walk over the rope is great. The gift shop is good, plenty parking and another good visit... More

The walk to the rope it a bit testing ( 0.6 miles ) on an undulating trail with about 50 steep steps. The rope bridge is a scary but safe experience, only 8 people allowed at a time supervised by park staff. The island the bridge leads to is nothing out of the ordinary so it's definitely the bridge walk... More
