It's a bit of a hike from the car park to the bridge so wear sturdy footwear but it is beautiful so there are lots of spots for a good photo. The bridge itself is exactly as advertised, an old rope bridge. It does attract quite large queues as only 8 people can be on the bridge at a time... More

We visited the Rope Bridge on our way to Giants Causeway as my daughter and partner wanted to cross it. My husband who is afraid of heights also decided to conquer his fear and cross the bridge encouraged by a lovely guide called Lawrence who has been working there for a number of years. My fear of heights was too... More

So many photo opportunities on the walk down/up, as the views are breathtaking. Good sturdy footwear is a must, as it is a long walk up and down and there are a lot of loose stones covering the ground and steps, but once you cross the bridge, be aware it is very bouncy, it is worth the journey. If you... More

We had very good weather when we went. The scenery was amazing and very pretty. I'd say it's photogenic. But I don't think it's good for small children that like to run around. There aren't many rails and there are cliffs.

Went here in January, although very cold wet and windy... Had a great day... I finally went over the rope bridge.. It was scary for me... Jelly legs lol... Prices. Adults £5.95. Not sure how much for kids.... Long walk to the bridge.... About 20 mins... But nice place in summer.. There's a coffee shop.... Picnic tables... Toilets.... Parking.... Free...

It was a blustery but beautiful walk to the bridge & back and you could't help but want to take a million photos but no matter how hard you try you can't quite capture being there. It was thrilling walking the bridge, too! We stayed nearby in Ballycastle, we had breakfast at out B&B and set off, when we arrived... More

Over a four-day weekend in November, 2016, my 30-something year old daughter and I took the Giant's Causeway tour out of Belfast and included the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge on the trip. A brisk walk from where the tour bus left us, we felt the wind and a bit of rain, all pretty much normal for that time of year in... More

We loved this place, first of all the car park was free, as were the toilets, which were very clean. In the cafe the staff were so helpful, I have a gluten problem but they went out of their way to adjust a deal so I could benefit. The soup was fantastic. The views are fabulous on the way to...

While it wasn't nearly as scary as people have said, the views were magnificent! It was short, much of the island was not open for access and the two workers there didn't seem to be on the same page--one would say, "It's late--just get over the bridge and take your photos on the way back" while the other would say,...
