The bridge is not very long but it is definitley worth doing; there is a very nice walk leading to the bridge and everything is beatiful. The view over the sea was very nice eventhough we went in December we had clear visibility.

Long walk out to bridge but the views on the way there are stunning plus benches to take a wee break if needed ... rope bridge itself is cool but shorter than I had anticipated but you Def need a head for heights lol 😂

We undertook this as part of a day trip from Dublin to the Giant's Causeway, and because the access was included as part of the cost of the trip, I didn't notice how much it was. Anyway, it was worth it to see the achingly beautiful views. Unsurprisingly, there were many people wanting to cross the bridge at the same... More

This is amazing!! You can see Scotland in the distance. The rope bridge is quiet a hike, but well worth it. It was a little scary to cross, but so glad that I did it. At the end of the tour you can get a certificate for 1 pound stating you crossed the bridge. I think a great souvenir!!! They... More

Even in chilly weather this bridge was worth it!! It was a 1km walk from admission to the bridge, and the entire walk is one giant breathtaking view! From the lush islands to the grazing goats, this was one of my favorite stops!

This was part of a wonderful trip to Belfast. The day was cold and windy. The Good: This is beautiful, simply beautiful. It was a sunny, windy, cold day and there weren't very many people present. The Bad: It was so windy that the bridge was closed. So, if there is a way to check weather conditions prior to making... More

This is a long walk to a short rope bridge that spans a gap between an island and the coast. Apparently fishermen have been using it for years and years, although the current installation is permanent and run by the historical society. They are very concerned about safety, so it closes when it's too windy and there are a lot... More

After 1km walk you find this rope bridge, is worth a visit if you are nearby. I recommend first hours, so is not crowded and you have a better experience (and better picturres)

The park is nice and doesn't have an entrance fee. The bridge connects to a small island with simliar views to the rest. The bridge feels abit tourist trap and I don't suggest it.

We were so lucky to speak with one of the guides who gave us so much information. She was very well informed and could not have helped more. It is a bit of a hike so if walking and stairs are a problem this is probably not for you.
