I am uncomfortable with heights so I was very apprehensive about the rope bridge. I made it, though, and was rewarded with stunning views of the sea. I was disappointed that some of the trail was closed but still got a good look around. I still can't believe I made it across!

We drove here after visiting the Giants Causeway (about a 15min drive.) They have a parking lot with public toilets and a café when you first drive in. Then you walk down a track and buy your tickets. They have time slots for the visit as only so many people can be on the bridge or on the Island at... More

Best if you are reasonable fit as there is a bit of walk followed by steep steps to get to & from the rope bridge itself but the experience & views make it well worthwhile.

breathtaking views, exhilarating experience, the north coast in all its splendor!! First time I've gone over the bridge in 4 visits and Laurence from Transylvania was just a great guy!

It’s a pleasant scenic 15/20 minute walk along the cliff top to the rope bridge itself. We arrived there around 5.00PM and consequently there was very few people waiting to cross the rope bridge, when we got to it, but I believe that there can be very long queues and delays during the day, when the tour buses arrive, as...

The views while hiking out to the bridge were beautiful. While it is not terribly steep, it is quite a hike along the ridge of the cliffs. We did see a lot of people with young children, but it looked a bit dangerous once you go across the bridge as the cliff did not have a fence around it (which... More

Picked up the courage to cross the brigde. We went on Allens tour bus, had a great driver called Ian who was a walking encyclopedia of information and a funny man too. The bridge is about 1/2 mile walk from the car park and you have to walk as car cannot access the path. The scenery is breathtaking, and the... More

This is a great place to visit if you need to have the cobwebs blown away - good gusts of wind are guaranteed, even if the sea is like a mill pond which it was when I was last there. Anyway, there is an entrance fee, which goes to the NT. You do need to walk and there are steps... More

It took about 15-20 minutes to walk from the car park to the rope bridge. There was quite a long queue at the bridge, although it was November and a chilly day. I can't imagine how busy this would be in the summer months. The walk to the bridge is very steep in places with lots of steps. The bridge... More

The Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge is interesting in itself, but I'm not sure it's worth the £5.60 entry fee (we got a slight discount, paying £6 because we were a group calling ahead). The walk along the coast TO the bridge is much more interesting and really beautiful, and you don't have to pay for that. We visited during the Winter... More
