We did not cross the bridge. It was a beautiful walk with great views. Took lots of pictures. Stayed about an hour.

This is not a long hike but there are some parts that are a bit steep. The views are nice and the type bridge is nothing scary at all. It can get busy with tour buses and other traffic so it might be best to...More

Stunning photography opportunities just after crossing the bridge. It was very windy and a bit cool for those of us used to warm summers. Be sure to pack a hat to cover your ears.

Swinging some 50 feet above the beach below, it's quite a thrill to walk across this bridge looking. Well onto the island it leads to, you get a great view of the cliffs surrounding it. Worth the entrance fee and the walk to get there!

Expensive for a walk across a short rope bridge. It’s a good hike to the bridge and you can get great pics of the area but I wouldn’t pay the price of admission for the bridge.

Unbelievable natural beauty here and the crossing the rope bridge was really cool! Was fortunate to have a fabulous sunny day to experience it. Was one of my most favorite experiences on a wonderful trip to Ireland!

Walking across the bridge and seeing the fisherman’s house on the island was really cool. Just be sure you’re ready for the hike. It’s only a little on a kilometer, but with up and down hills and step stairs.

This was the highlight of our trip to Northern Ireland. The main thing is to get there when they open at 09:00. Takes about a 20 minute walk one way if you stop to take photos. There are a few hills and stairs but I...More

There were quite a few steep steps to the bridge. The walk to the bridge is fairly long, but reasonable. It might be tiring for some.
