This was a fun tour. Bridge was scary yet impressive at the same time! Walk around on the other side was beautiful but a bit muddy so be careful. Need to have appropriate shoes on! Two guides at each side of the bridge to help move people along. A must do if you're in the area.

We drove here to see sights. We did not do the bridge. It's a breathtaking location with cafe, coffee, quaint gift shop, desserts, indoor & outdoor seating. It's free parking even if you don't do bridge. This is a gem!

Hard work but loved every second. My sister and I both well over 65 puffed a bit but did it in our own time.

The Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge was worth a visit....we visited the Rope Bridge, The Giant's Cause Way, and Bushmills which are all about 10 minutes away from each other. There is a nice 15 minute or so walk from the parking area to the rope bridge with views of the water and the island the bridge connects to. Once you arrive... More

We had planned to visit the rope bridge for quite a while now and it didn't disappoint. The weather was lovely too which helped but was assisted by some lovely wind which made crossing a bit more exciting. Glad we ticked it off out to do list.

Great way to spend a couple of hours enjoying the spectacular Irish coastline- it's a reasonable walk (20 minutes) from the car park to the rope bridge - but scenic and mostly easy. Crossing the rope bridge was fun & safe - our kids ranging from 9-11 loved it. The island itself was a different story! There was very little... More

We visited the 'rope bridge' on a coach tour and didn't fancy the actual bridge in diagonal rain, so retreated to the shop. It's cosy little haven of warmth, tea, and homemade cakes (along with the usual over-priced tourist tat) on a wind-swept cuff next to a car park. Once the rain settled down, we ventured out: its well-worth looking... More

This was a great experience and not something you get to do everyday. The scenery is stunning on the walk to the bridge and even more spectacular once you cross the it. This is not for the faint of heart or those afraid of heights but it is well worth it

This place offers you many different views of the cliffs and beach on the other side of the bridge, a place that cannot be missed.
