We went here on a tour bus and were given an hour, that is not nearly enough time. The Bridge was cool to walk across, but the views on the other side were amazing. My wife and i walked around a little bit but then sat down and tried to take it all in. It was an awesome experience.

Overpriced, crowded and quite lame ("safe"). Gotta queue to walk across. Views are spectacular however especially on a sunny day.

There is a bit of a hike from the car park to the bridge over rough steps and paths, But the experience of crossing the bridge to the small island was WELL worth it The sky was cloudless sea was so blue the view was incredible almost breathtaking, You can see the Scottish headland.

We were lucky to visit the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge on a beautiful sunny day. It's an easy walk from the car park and the walk across the bridge wasn't particularly scary. It's quite sturdy and definitely worth the trip. Once you cross the bridge onto the small island you are rewarded with a beautiful view of the opposing cliffs. We... More

You have to walk about a kilometre to get to the bridge. It's not for someone with difficulty walking. You can't get across the bridge any way but on foot. There can be line ups to get across. The fun is in the crossing and the views from the island.

This was a good experience. The walk to get to the bridge is a bit far, however the view was incredible. Once on the bridge, the rough waters beneath makes for an exhilarating experience. Also the gift store at the front had nice souvenirs. There was also a booth where you could get a certificate for crossing the bridge.

Only several kilometres from the Giant's Causeway it is certainly worth a visit. The rope bridge is a bit of fun but the real attraction is the stunning coast line. We had great weather and clear skies...so beautiful whichever direction we looked.

What an adventure! It was a rainy, windy day but oh, what an amazing experience. It's a long walk to get to the bridge but the scenery is worth it. Ireland has a beautiful coast and it is a must see and do!

We lucked into a beautiful day to experience this attraction and the scenery was definitely stunning. I was a little disappointed in the bridge itself as all the photos made it look much longer than it was. It was great to say we did this, but the line-ups to get across then back over again were not quite worth the... More

Unfortunately as in any attraction you will have to pay, but it totally worth it. However it takes some walking until the rope bridge. So get prepared! Nevertheless, you will forget your tiredness by the team you will be on the rope bridge! Such a fantastic experience!
