Can't Believe I actually did this!

I don't like heights and psyched myself up for going across forgetting that I also had to come back again; but I did do it - not for the feint hearted! Really amazing place.

The bridge itself is nothing to write home about, but the views in and around it are lovely. Not a "must see."

This famous "rope" bridge offers more than just the crossing itself. The site is located right on the beautiful and rugged coast. Once you park (free parking) you go to the ticket booth. You then walk a kilometer to the bridge itself. You can take time to stop and enjoy the scenery. The walk is fairly flat and an easy... More

I was actually on the area for the Giant's Causeway then found out about this – but I must say it beat the Causeway hands down. Incredible scenery, amazing bridge, reasonably priced and just a fantastic place to visit. High recommended!

The bridge links the mainland to the tiny island of Carrickarede. It is 20 metres across and is suspended 30 metres above the sea below. Access to the bridge is via a winding path. It's okay going downhill but the walk back up may cause difficulties for some. At busy times there is a queue to cross as only a... More

The hike to and from the rope bridge was special in itself. Walking over the chasm on a rope bridge is simply cool. Viewing the coastline and sheer cliffs leaves you speechless but wanting more.

Actually the bridge appears very safe and only 15 - 20 people are allowed on at a time. If you take a day trip to the Giants Causeway you will probably stop here. Beautiful Irish coastline. there is a 90 foot drop from the bridge and it goes from island to island as set up for the fishermen years ago.... More

The rope bridge is actually pretty safe and easy to cross, but it's still a challenge! The hike over gives you plenty of opportunity to glimpse the chasm you cross to get to the island, and feel the wind and occasional rain that adds to the challenge. Don't forget you have to come BACK as well as go across!
