I have been to suspension bridges in other countries (the biggest in Vancouver, B.C.) and I guess I expected it to be bigger. It was a busy day and we had to park in the overflow parking, which turned out to be a good thing...More

There is on site parking and a fee to get in and you get a timed ticket to cross the bridge. There is a long walk to the bridge that has many steps (and you have to climb them to return) but there are great...More

We stopped at the rope bridge as part of a day tour in the area. The walk along the coastline was gorgeous and it took us about 25 minutes to get to the bridge with a little stopping to take pictures and enjoy the area....More

Went Monday 12th June 2017 and was surprised that they charged £7 to walk the half mile to the rope bridge. The views are stunning and the rope bridge is excellent but charging £7 to enter the "site" is scandalous.

We were blessed with a perfect day, and this site was very cool. The coast line is beautiful and the bridge is a thrill (this will not be for everyone, it is high and does bounce). Do be aware that there is a 10-15 minute...More

There is a walk to the bridge from the first booth and they charge for crossing the bridge. If you don't want to cross, you can get pretty close. We paid to cross but that is basically all you get to do. The bridge leads...More

Beautiful colors when the sun shines. The water is green and the cliffs are stunning. I really recommend this destination.

My wife and I visited here on a wet and gloomy day, it was still very nice but wouldn't say it is amazing, nice views, price is a bit expensive though

There is no time limit, although they do control how many people go across the bridge at a time. When we were there part of the island was closed off because of the nesting birds, and there has been some erosion. It is more... More

I will be visiting northern Ireland from the USA in June, and this attraction looks like it will be worth stopping to see. Is there a Visitor's Center associated with this bridge, to learn more about it? Is there also a gift shop or a place to buy food/snacks? Thanks in advance!!
