A great experience for all ages! Make sure you are prepared for the hike up and back. Well worth it though.

My friends and I stopped here as part of a tour from Belfast to the Giant's Causeway and I am so glad we did. This was absolutely beautiful. The pathway is a bit steep, and the bridge is about a 20min walk along the coast from the carpark so if you have trouble walking you should be careful. But all... More

The scenery at this place is absolutly incredible. Its definitely worth a visit to cross the rope bridge, it is scary and not for the faint of heart, especially if you have a bunch of thrill seeking teenagers jumping on the bridge behind you! But it is fun and a good photo opportunity. If you go wear good shoes because... More

This was a pricy attraction at £5.80 PP, to walk across the bridge, you can walk right up to the bridge and get great views for no cost, so if you just want the views, do not pay the entry fee for the bridge and just do the walk. The walk is long 0.62 miles, quite hilly and many many... More

It was definitely a face your fears kind of day! I am afraid of heights but when your host takes you on a tour of the Antrim coast and you end up here.........well....you go for it! So glad I did. It was amazing to be able to say I crossed it! It was even more amazing to enjoy the view... More

Stopped in here on our way to the giants causeway. £5 per person is a bit expensive but given the stunning scenery we were happy we visited. Very touristy, advise to visit early in the day before huge numbers arrive. We had to queue for around 10 minutes before we could cross the bridge, the queue would have been waiting... More

No trip to the Antrim coast would be complete without a visit to Carrick-a-Rede island over the famous rope bridge, traditionally erected by salmon fishermen, which spans a 30-metre deep and 20-metre wide chasm. The island is the best example of a volcanic plug in Ireland and the views of the nearby chalk cliffs overlaid with basalt are spectacular, with... More

Make no mistake you pay and you walk a distance to get some great views not the bridge. The bridge is actually pretty small but some of the views you get are fantastic on a good day

Terrific experience walking out to the bridge. It is a bit of a walk out, and some difficult terrain (hills) so you should dress appropriately with good walking shoes. The day we went out, it was pouring down rain, but even then, it was fun ,educational, and the views were spectacular! A must see/do!

We visited the bridge on a very clear day. It was a bit windy but beautiful nonetheless. The cost of the experience is well worth it. It is a bit of a hike to get to the bridge but it's beautiful all the way. There were a few other tourists but certainly not too busy for us to enjoy the... More
