If you're on your way to the Giant's causeway, Carrick-A-Rede is a cool stop to make. The cliffs are stunning but paying for the bridge is really unnecessary. Lovely sight though

Not too far from the Causeway, the ROPE BRIDGE is well worth a visit. Parking is free and attendants are very helpful and friendly. It is very well organised for all buses and cars. From RON at the entrance, who explained the layout, to DIANE-a...More

We did a full tour of NI and found this attraction to be our favorite. It's an easy drive from Belfast. Once you get there the scenery there on the ocean is truly amazing. The bridge itself is cool but not amazing. However the walk...More

Not what I expected but enjoyed going over the bridge. Not for the faint hearted especially as we went a windy day! Staff were lovely and worth the trip if your visiting the Causeway.

This was a lovely experience. The rope bridge was short but thrilling. No admission fee to walk as far as the rope bridge entrance but you cannot cross the bridge to the island without a ticket - which is sold 164 steps backward at the...More

The rope bridge was not very long, but the £8 each we paid was worth it for not only walking across the bridge but the lovely island we crossed to, the views were amazing, and just a thoroughly enjoyable time.

Walked across the rope bridge on a windy day. Have to say it’s not a long bridge, but I was happy when I came to the end of it because the wind seems to make you feel more vulnerable and up against the elements. That...More

I would not risk it with a baby, even if in a baby carrier. If it is windy, the rope bridge sways quite a lot so balance is important. When we visited, my 2 year old waited for us with the grandparents on the other side.
