I am a huge adrenaline junkie and love to do anything that includes height, so when I saw the option to walk across a rope bridge suspended on two cliffs I knew I had to visit. The scenic drive to the rope bridge, the hike up to the bridge, and the views from the bridge itself were more than spectacular.... More

The bridge it self is not that interesting unless you have something for heights. The surroundings of the bridge on the other hand, both before and after the bridge, are very beautiful and there is plenty of opportunity for taking nice photos with the water and cliffs in the background. There is both parking and eating possibilities on sight, but... More

We came just when the bridge had closed. First we thought it was a shame but then we realised it was perfect. We didn´t have to stand in a line, pay admission-fee or be surrounded with other turists. There was some other people around and we could take the walk out to the bridge and look at it (just not... More

But expensive considering but done absolutely amazing photo opportunities, take a bottle of water with you and be wearing a sturdy set of shoes. Knowing Northern Ireland like I do then defiantly pack a rain coat as there's nothing that begins to represent shelter on the war round which must be the guts of 2 miles

The price to cross the bridge is 5.90 euros - very reasonable! The walk to the bridge is long, a bit unsteady and there are inclines here and there. Once you get to the bridge there may be a short wait as they only allow 8 people to cross at a time. Ut is much shorter than it appears in... More

After the Causway the Bridge was next. After paying the entrance fee there was a lengthy walk to the bridge but it was along the cliff edge with good views out to sea. but before we even got onto the bridge we had to tag onto the end of a large queue and wait our turn as the system in... More

Not far from Giant's Causeway, you can buy a ticket to cross the rope bridge. It's a little hike up to the rope bridge but there are benches if you need to stop along the way. There is also a gift shop and cafe onsite.

The Carrick-A-Rede'rope bridge is interesting and a beautiful and scenic location. The bridge is not long at all and the lineups to cross can seem longer. Still a nice walk even if you do not cross the bridge and the trails are scenic

The parking and the hike down are free. The hike is gorgeous but I would recommend the bridge as well. The bridge isn't scary (at least for us). It gives you a great view an a fun area to hike around. Great for sea birds. We saw an oystercatcher and razorbills (look like flying penguins) among others. We went during... More
