This is a rip off an old fisherman's bridge and a walk and they charge a fortune for what takes 15 mins. They say 2 hours just to make it seem like something to justify the cost. Listen I live nearby this area is outstandingly beautiful and there are lots of free walks all along the coast. Don't be fooled... More

We visited the Rope Bridge during a Game of Thrones tour and was blown away by the vistas from the tiny island you reach via the rope bridge were spectacular. I was a little worried about the bridge but they regulate the number of visitors crossing it, so it wasn't the frightening experience I thought. Once on the island we... More

Fun trip to do. Long queues (especially if you arrive with coach parties). More substantial than a "rope" bridge. Once on the island, lovely atmosphere - beware with children - long drops.

We had a great time. Our kids are 10 and 6 and they loved the thrill and sense of achievement. We saw dolphins after we crossed the bridge and everyone was delighted with that. The crowds were very manageable and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Lots of steps and plenty of walking as you make your way to the rope bridge, which is actually not that long, but nonetheless, an impressive feat once used by fishermen to get to their great fishing spots (today's rope bridge is much better than what they used!!) Footing along the paths and stairs can get slippery if raining or... More

We really enjoyed walking across the bridge and it was also a lovely hike to the bridge. The bridge was much sturdier than I expected and less scary to cross than I had anticipated. Well worth doing if you are in the area.

What a beautiful way to spend the day! Worth the walk and breath taking views of the coast! Even though it may seem excessive to pay to cross a bridge, it is worth it!

While the rope bridge itself is the main attraction and a lot of fun by itself, there is so much more about Carrick-a-Rede! There are spectacular views from every angle, especially on a clear day when you can see Scotland in the distance. The island itself is really fun to explore along with the paths that lead up to it.... More

The rope bridge was recommended to me by a cousin who had visited previously. I was going to be visiting Giants Causeway with family, and asked if we could add this in as well. Thankfully it's not far from Causeway, so we didn't have to travel far. We had to wait in a line for approximately 20 minutes before we... More
