The waterfront views were the high point of this trip for me. The 15 minute walk to the bridge and back on a beautiful day is perfect. The line coming back over may take awhile due to everyone crossing and grabbing a picture on the way over but with good weather that isn't really a problem.

I loved the actual walk across the bridge on to the island but apart from that there isn't much else here. It is a must do in my opinion and its exciting to walk over the sea but not much else around so its over quick.

This was part of a trip we booked with Paddywagons to the Giants Causeway. It was really nice and lovely walk down to the bridge, I found the bridge little bit scary but plucked up the courage and managed to cross it. It was very cold so if it is a cool day I recommend woollies, but once you start... More

Was a beautiful day, saw the bridge from afar and gulped!! Has to be done! The walk to it has a number of steep steps but are easily managed. The view is tremendous, and when you get to the bridge it is not very long and I managed it with ease. (didn't let go of the handrail though!) Was a... More

It was a grey drizzly day when we visited the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge. After collecting our tickets we had a good half an hours walk on an uneven pathway until we reached the long queue at the bridge itself. This gave us plenty of time to take lots of photos of the jaw dropping scenery. The towering cliffs hung over... More

Decent walk out to the bridge (about fifteen minutes along decent paths) with fantastic coastal views along the way. The weather was atrocious which meant staff at the bridge had to be exceptionally good to ensure the safety of those crossing, which they were. It was exhilarating to cross with the winds whipping through the gap between mainland and island... More

The coastline and views are amazing from here, but the queues were huge. The wait to get over the bridge and back spoilt it as we were on a time deadline. I'm sure it would be far more enjoyable during off peak times!

Fantastic views of the coast line, great little walk, the bridge was a bit scary for some :) I enjoyed the bounciness. I didn't spend too much time here as we were on a tight deadline, didn't visit the cafe. Enjoyed the walk and views even though it was windy as hell

Really enjoyed seeing this. It is not as far across the bridge as it looks on the photos. The scenery is spectacular all along this coast. Well worth a visit and if you are a National Trust member it won't cost you anything. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.
