Good to do but not value for money, great scenery. When across the bridge the next section was closed off. There is a small tea shop, and a car park.

... £5.90 to cross the bridge a bit steep, particularly as path was closed on other side so nowhere to go. Having said that we did enjoy the walk to and from the bridge itself which is free.

Lovely walk out to bridge. Fabulous scenery even before bridge. Walk is not disability friendly. Would need to be moderately fit for the climb back. Bridge itself simple enough , smaller kids loved it. If afraid of heights it is more daunting going down the steps to the bridge than the bridge itself so don't be put off by this... More

2nd time for us, 1st for my sister, to walk across this rope bridge. The views are phenomenal and the adrenaline rush when walking across that bridge (those of us afraid of heights) is something else. A must do while visiting Northern Ireland.

You can get to the bridge for free but if you want to go across its £5.90 which is pushing it a bit I think... We went on 19th march and my cousin was disappointed that when you crossed over the bridge and went around the corner they had it sealed off as it was not Spring yet!!! Even though... More

Amazing views (even before you get to the bridge), beautiful walks & the bridge itself is a lovely experience with more stunning views. Bring comfortable shoes - it's a bit of a trek to the bridge itself, but definitely worth it!

We went to Sammich for lunch and we were not disappointed! Husband is always on the quest for the best reuben sandwich, and he says he found it, bar none! Better than anything he ever tasted in Chicago or anywhere else! Its their special on Saturdays; takes them a week just to prepare the meat. Now I can't keep him... More

Crossing the rope bridge is a bit unnerving as it sways. Only one person is allowed on the bridge at a time. But once you get to the other side and climb to the top of the hill the view is spectacular! It is a bit of a difficult trek over the terrain to get to the bridge but it... More
