Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge is a 1km walk from the car park. Getting to the bridge involves walking up some small and steep inclines as well as climbing up and down a few stairs so unfortunately it is not for those with a mobility problem! A walk across the bridge is not recommended for those who are scared of heights as... More

A fantastic experience and very quiet when we visited so there was very little queuing to cross the bridge (Friday 11am). It cost us £5.90 each, payable to the National Trust upon entry.

The walk is a bit hilly and there are quite a few stairs, so it was a bit of a challenge for my 70-year-old mother with a bad knee, but was worth the effort. Gorgeous views of the Atlantic on one side, grazing sheep on... More

This is only 1 klm walk along a pre-ordained passage with steps at steeper spots (useful for coming back). a very enjoyable walk with a fee of £7 per person if you intend to cross the rope bridge. very steep, narrow steps down onto the bridge and the bridge itself is...

I had heard of this bridge through a friend of mine, and so decided to go check it out. You have to walk about a kilometer (0.62 miles) to get to the bridge itself, and have to do the same walk on the return journey, but the views along the coastline are spectacular so the walk flies by. The bridge... More

If in northen Ireland this is a must do, lovely walk to and from the rope bridge. I'm terrified of heights but loved this, it was very scary but so worth doing. I can't recommend this enough
