If i had know how far I would have to walk up/down hills and stairs just to cross a robe bridge I wouldn't have bothered. For what it was, it was expensive. The hystory of it is interesting and there is a nice cafe.

The sun was shining on our visit to The Carrick-A-Rede Bridge as we are National Trust members we had brought our passes and carparking badge which is valid so free parking and free entrance...though we did donate and did spend in the delightful cafe. The walk to the bridge is along a looked after and maintained path though the steps... More

I actually found the bridge a little underwhelming - it's much shorter than it appears in the photos and not as high as if thought. Having said that, the views along the walk to the bridge and from the other side are simply beautiful. I was happy to pay the entrance fee as you can see how well maintained the... More

Sunny day which made it. Lovely walk. 5.90 per adult for entry, understandable for those crossing bridge but maybe bit expensive for those that do not cross bridge or locals (who live in area and have to pay to see their countryside). Beautiful views. Bridge crossing easy once u look ahead and don't think about it(if your afraid of heights... More

We enjoyed this National Trust site more than we enjoyed the nearby Giant's Causeway. Perhaps this could be attributed to the fact that we arrived here early in the day and so the crowds weren't quite as crazy as at the Causeway later that same day. But the absence of a giant visitor centre and of buses driving along the... More

On arrive we joined a small queue at the entrance and took our time to take in the stunning scenery during the 1Km long walk to the rope bridge. The was a queue to go across but a very helpful National Trust Guide advised us that the wait would only be 10 minutes. There is something surreal about crossing on... More

Its busy, at peak times there are queues, its a fair walk, the steps are steep... but its worth it! Get there early to avoid the crowds and enjoy the walk along the rugged cliff tops and down to the rope bridge. If you don't do heights then maybe this part is not for you... :-) Once on the small...

I am a huge adrenaline junkie and love to do anything that includes height, so when I saw the option to walk across a rope bridge suspended on two cliffs I knew I had to visit. The scenic drive to the rope bridge, the hike up to the bridge, and the views from the bridge itself were more than spectacular.... More

The bridge it self is not that interesting unless you have something for heights. The surroundings of the bridge on the other hand, both before and after the bridge, are very beautiful and there is plenty of opportunity for taking nice photos with the water and cliffs in the background. There is both parking and eating possibilities on sight, but... More
