My daughter & I visited the rope bridge & were disappointed. The rope bridge is short -maybe 20 yards- & travels to a lil island that offers no hiking, or anything else. It feels like a tourist attraction where you pay to walk the rope bridge. The scenery is beautiful but you can hike for free.

This was a side trip we took on our brief visit to Northern Ireland. I will tell you that it was worth the drive up although some people would disagree. Besides, it's near the Bushmill distillery!

Do not do this if you are afraid of heights and wobbly bridges. What an experience the walk to and from was breathtaking lots of birds nesting on the cliffs very organised would recommend

Even in the pouring rain this place was worth a visit! The views are spectacular and walking over the bridge although thrilling was completely safe even for young children. However, there are no fences on the other side so holding hands is a must.

Bit rich charging £6 to walk across it then rushed along to let all the other hundreds of people over and back. If you're in the area - it's a must. It's just a bit of an anticlimax I thought. On the positive side - we had the weather on our side and managed to take some great photographs. Great... More

Beautiful views of the fabulous North coast. On a sunny day it reminds me of Portugal...just amazing. You don't have to go across the bridge if you don't want to, there's a bench just before the steps down where you can take in the stunning scenery. You only pay if you're crossimg the bridge.

If you want to take some truly classy enviable pics, the Carrick-A-rede Rope Bridge would be the place for it. Visited it as part of the Giant's Causeway tour..... though Irish Day Tours. Tony, our guide, was amazing ...

I had been before, 20 years ago, but had been nagging the family I now have to let me take them for a break in Northern Ireland specifically to go here and the Giant's Causeway. I am not in the best health and really could have done with my hiking sticks but, it was worth the effort, as it was... More

The concept of this attraction is pretty cool, but like all other tourist spots on the coast, get there early. Know that this will not be a quick in and out stop as well. The bridge is a good 1/2 mile walk, with two steep stairways. A lovely walk if you're in good spirits and have nothing but time on... More
