Because of the number of visitors daily, access to the rope bridge is by timed allocation. That being said it is worth the wait. You do have to be reasonably fit/mobile as there are steep flights of steps which cannot be avoided. 8 people at...More

7pounds for 15min waiting and 2minutes enjoyment on the rope ladder itself. Due to heavy rIn the day before most of the area is closed. NICE TO HAVE DONE IT but I will never return

The drive there took us through beautiful scenery, but the attraction itself is very touristy and busy. The parking lot is so busy it has staff giving directions. We managed to get a parking space after waiting a while, and set off walking from the...More

At first glance, you're thinking "NO WAY!" Believe me, you'll be fine. As another reviewer said, go early and wear good walking shoes. The walk to the bridge is a long one, up and down steps and sometimes steep climbs. The views are amazing though,...More

We had been to the giants causeway so decided to pay a visit here. Wasn't as long a rope bridge as we thought it was going to be but we still enjoyed it. It is a long walk from the visitor centre to the bridge...More

Definitely try to get here as early as you can when it opens to avoid the rush of tour buses and crowds. It was a bit of a hike down to the bridge, but the views were well worth the trip. Just stunning. There is...More

The parking is free but you have to pay for an hour time slot to walk down and cross the bridge. Free to National Trust members.

I am not sure but the local on site Restaurant does so I would assume that payment booth for the Bridge would also accommodate.
