I enjoyed the walk to the rest station before my husband made the arduous walk down steep steps to the bridge and back. I took a photograph of my husband once he was over the bridge and onto the island. The scenery was magnificent all...More

It's funny because it's hard to think of another attraction that charges £8 for a 1km walk but there you go. The bridge is a quite short crossing above a 30m drop to the water below. There is plenty of history associated with the salmon...More

Visited here with my bro on a tour of GoT and top tourist sites. It’s £8 to cross the bridge or free for National Trust members. It’s a long and steep walk to the bridge from the car park, you can’t see the bridge until...More

The whole of the north coast of Northern Ireland is stunning, with unbelievable views around practically every turn. But the rope bridge at Carrick-A-Rede is incredible. You have to walk quite a distance in from the parking lot, so be prepared. But the views and...More

I am not good with heights, but I felt that the opportunity to cross the bridge was too good to miss. To get to the bridge it is a 20 minute walk across undulating unpaved land and many steps, if you have walking difficulties I...More

A beautiful walk along the coast takes you to the short rope bridge over a 100 foot drop to the wild see below. Unfortunately when we visited we couldn't explore the island as it was closed off due to being very slippy underfoot. Then you...More

It was a perfect day to be at the Rope Bridge! The sky was clear and blue and it wasn’t windy at all. We could even see the Scottish shores across the Channel. Walking across the bridge was a little nerve wrecking at first but...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.
