Got some stunning pictures of the coast and islands on a winters day. Water was a beautiful blue. Rope bridge was very short, and didn't provide any better views (particularly as the top section was closed), but it was a bit of fun, and again, got some great photos.

The rope bridge is well worth a visit when you are in the Causeway area. It's a bit of a walk down to it from the car park but the views along the way are fabulous. It takes a bit of nerve to actually cross the bridge. The surrounding area is lovely to walk around to admire the beautiful views right across to Scotland.

Really enjoyed the visit to Carrick a Reed. Views were stunning and the walk was lovely. The bridge is very secure and sturdy and the staff are so friendly and helpful. It was a quiet day but apparently it can be busy at times

Firstly , I must say the staff on the bridge were very reassuring helpful, and patient.
Walked across the bridge( which is quiet sturdy) great view of the sea below crashing against the rocks. When I got to the other side ( the island) the walk way was closed off , so you walked back the bridge again. Meanwhile a long que were waiting for their turn to do the same. So come early in the morning, or you could be queing for over an hour.

My sister-in-law and I enjoyed the walk out to the bridge. We both arrived at the top of the ladder down to the bridge; only one of us made it across. One look down, and "sister" turned back. I climbed down the ladder and across the bridge. The island was small but cute. The biggest challenge is getting down the ladder to begin the bridge. If you can do that and find some stubbornness, you can make it across the bridge.
