Lovely views even though the day we visited was wet, windy and cold. You don't need long here, but its well worth popping in as part of a tour. Not sure it's worth the £5 to cross the bridge as you can get most of the views without going over to the little island. Cafe is good!

Stopped here for a couple of hours on our way to the Giant's Causeway. Glad we did. As said puring with rain but not cold. From where you park the bus its a fais walk to the rope bridge and some steep and slipper bits to overcome. But the walk is part of the pleasure and is free. There's a... More

More beautiful than the bridge itself was the scenery along the way from the parking space to the bridge. It was quite warm and sunny day, so the color of the sea and chilling wind made it all one of my greatest outdoor experience. The bridge was not so daring to cross as they claimed , but at least we... More

An old rope bridge that fishermen used to use get across to catch migrating salmon. It was about a 20 minute walk from the car park down to the rope bridge, where we had to wait to cross (as it’s only one way, with only eight people allowed on at any one time). The winds felt like they whipped up... More

The day we visited there were 60mph winds and they shut it down-only after we were on the other side. We had to make our way back across the rope/wood plank bridge with the guide's help and it was swaying and gusty. A bit frightening but exhilarating! Well worth the effort.Close to Giants'Causeway.

I remember crossing this when i was younger - then it was a scary expereicne. Now its all rigid bridge and not as scary (if thats what you enjoy) it is still enjoyable though. Go when the weather is nice and enjoy the walk to and from the bridge, bring cash to get across the bridge though.

Oh my goodness! It was beautiful! The que to walk the bridge will be lengthy, but it is worth it. Be aware, you cant avoid others in your pictures when crossing the bridge.

A nice and peaceful walk, lovely scenery and an interesting bridge walk. Go there with friends. Funny pricing though.

Walking on the bridge is extremely fun - even funnier when it's windy! The bridge connects the mainland to a small and pictoresque island. The view of the coast is simply stunning, your gaze will embrace kilometers of rocky cliffs, green irish grass and sea. I was lucky: I got there first thing in the morning. Make sure you do... More
