A lovely restored rope bridge with stunning views. it is very wobbly, which adds to it's fun. There is a walk to it, again with lovely views along the way. Be aware you cannot take a dog over the bridge onto the island. You can walk along to the bridge, but that is far as you can take a dog.... More

It was very windy the day we went, so we weren't allowed to cross the bridge, though an employee took photos for us. The walk to the bridge takes maybe 20 minutes. The metal steps down to the bridge are a little steep but there are hand rails. The views from here were amazing.

There is a 20 minutes hike to the suspension bridge. The pathway to the bridge but you have to pay a fee to cross the suspension bridge. It was worth every penny because the view was just beautiful and I can just sit there for hours gazing at the view.

The trek to the bridge is long a hilly. The bridge and the views around it are pretty good on a nice day. Bridge visit a bit pricey. You can walk up to it without paying but you cannot cross it, if you just want to look at it. The cliff island you cross onto is pretty big. Maybe bring... More

This was once a salmon fishermen's bridge but sadly the salmon are almost no more. The bridge is scary and absolutely worth doing! :)

We took some Spanish visitors to "the suspension bridge" at their request and had an amazing day. Beautiful crisp day with fab views. Staff extremely helpful & made certificates (£1) to celebrate our guests crossing the bridge.

It could be considered for some as a tourist trap, and although you have to make this journey, from almost a kilometer, which for some can be difficult, the truth that is worth the beautiful views of the hike. Crossing the bridge isn't as bad as it seems. . You will find many opportunities to take beautiful photos. Prices are... More

I'll say right up front that this was an exhausting little excursion for me. It's a Km or so walk over some rough terrain, and several steep climbs both directions. I'd have been fine except I was fighting off a really bad cold. Our group came here after seeing the Giant's Causeway, so we'd already walked quite a bit this... More

We come back to this rope bridge every time we're in Northern Ireland. My husband complains that it's far too safe now! Misses the danger of crossing it during his childhood! For my part I find it much better now and enjoy crossing the bridge where 20years ago wouldn't see me on it! A slight disappointment is always that the... More
