Decent car park and a 1km walk across the hilltops to the bridge. Suitable for all abilities in decent weather, but it can turn in an instant to hail and rain. Metal steps down to the bridge are steep but the crossing over the bridge...More

The area in which Carrick-a-rede is located has beautiful views as far as the eyes can see. We arrived at the rope bridge and a storm was clearly coming in. It lasted for just a few minutes and we were treated with a beautiful rainbow...More

The views were unbelievable and the history of the place was very interesting. The rope bridge itself is a great thing to say you have done.

A must-see stop on your tour of Northern Ireland. Feels like you are standing at the edge of the world. The bridge is one of the sturdier rope bridges I've crossed, though the drop is pretty steep, so those with fear of heights may not...More

All revved up for the high-adrenalin portion of the causeway route for the weather to let me down. Was still worth the walk to the bridge as it is stunning coastline and I got to see what I have to face when I return (in...More

A small adventure like feeling gets in your head the moment you put a step on the bridge. The wind, so much that you have to use both your hands to hold yourself up there. It is a famous tourist attraction so there will always...More

February is definitely the warmest month for this place, but with sunshine, the experience could still be wonderful! I booked a private tour and visited this place after a business conference with my friend during Chinese New Year. This is a very convenient way for...More

Carrick-A-Rede is a stunning place right on the ocean. The colours are brilliant, the walk is calming and serene... Then you get to the rope bridge. You climb down these steep stairs where you reach the rope bridge. The day I crossed was a windy,...More

The attraction has parking! If you look on Google Maps, it's called Larrybane Quarry and goes up to around The Weighbridge Tearoom. When we went, the top section was full so we parked near the bottom, in the Larrybane... More

£8 each, they don’t make it clear when entering, you can walk right up to bridge for free, if you don’t want to cross, giants causeway the same, pay going through shop or free as an ulter way through bridge.
