A stunning spot , kept in perfect condition by the wonderful national trust . It was a kilometre walk to the rope bridge. I was a bit too scared to cross , as it's a bridge over a sheer drop into the sea , but John a wonderful national trust volunteer kindly led me across . He also told me... More

We came flying in to Northern Ireland especially to view and cross Carrick-a-Rede's rope bridge and Giant's Causeway. But weather was getting worse by the minute on our day of travel to Ballintoy/Antrim on January 13th with storm and snow. So on 14th the whole area was covered in a white blanket of snow and ice. We went to the... More

It's about an hour's walk (4km), mainly on the flat from the car park and is, in my opinion, worth it. However, if you've also done the Giant's Causeway in the same afternoon it can be a bit of a strain. The staff on the bridge are quite helpful and knowledgeable.

It was quite a long walk to the bridge which might make it difficult for many. The bridge was worth crossing to see how the early salmon fishermen used to cope. The coastline around here is spectacular.

Just amazing! A must-see if you're in Northern Ireland. Or even in Dublin. We booked a day trip from Dublin to the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge and the Giants Causeway. I was absolutely thrilled we did this. I fell in love with Northern Ireland at once, and will definitely go back again. But wear good walking shoes. I saw a lot... More

I have been to Ireland a few times, but this was my first experience at the rope bridge because the tour buses can't get to it. The bridge itself is about 2/3 of a mile from the parking lot, basically walking along the edge of the cliffs. There are over 100 steps to get from the sidewalk to the ladder... More

I really enjoyed my visit to the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge. You arrive to the site, and have to make a short walk to get to the bridge, but is worth it. the views of the place are amazing! and its fun to cross the bridge, and very secure. I loved the place and woult totally reccommend a visit.

A beautiful walk along stunning cliff edge scenery leads you down to the rope bridge, even with slight vertigo this was not too scary (it's become much safer over the years). Bring a picnic if the weather permits!

The sight was so amazing and picturesque. The weather wasn't great for us but we still enjoyed it and got great pictures. The wind was so strong and blowing the bridge all over the place but we made it accross.

This was my second visit to the rope bridge. The car park is free but admission to the trail out to the bridge was just under 6 pounds per person. The walk out to the bridge is easy for most people. There are some stone stairs down a hill that can get a bit slick when wet or iced up.... More
