The rope bridge is well worth a visit when you are in the Causeway area. It's a bit of a walk down to it from the car park but the views along the way are fabulous. It takes a bit of nerve to actually cross...More

Really enjoyed the visit to Carrick a Reed. Views were stunning and the walk was lovely. The bridge is very secure and sturdy and the staff are so friendly and helpful. It was a quiet day but apparently it can be busy at times

My primary reason for being in the north was to visit the Giant’s Causeway but there are some little hidden gems in the area like Carrick-A-Rede. It’s only about a 15 minute drive away from the Giant’s Causeway so can add a little filler for...More

Absolutely must do for any visitor to N Ireland. There're marshalls on each end to regulate the number of visitors at the crossing so safety is assured. I ventured despite not being a fan of heights and it certainly paid off.. memorable multi-sensory experience.. Though...More

The parking is free but you have to pay for an hour time slot to walk down and cross the bridge. Free to National Trust members.
