We happened on the Bridges of Ross when our guide suggested that it was a spectacular view on the Loop Head Drive and it was. A bit of a walk, but well worth it especially on a blustery sunny day. There was no one else...More

This was another location we were lucky enough to have to ourselves. The area itself starts with some nicer views but you need to make the walk to reach the gorgeous ones. I think it took us a good half hour of walking on a...More

I have painted the views from the park and enjoyed the wonderful hike along the cliffs. The natural bridges are amazing!

Ok, let's get something straight: although this is called "Bridges" of Ross, there is, in fact, only one of three original natural bridges left....the other two were swept away in the 19th century. That said, the remaining bridge is not the only amazing thing to...More

This is a must visit if you are anywhere near the Loop Head peninsula. From the car park it is an easy walk on a well defined path near the cliff edge. All the rock formations are amazing. There is now only one bridge left...More

If you head for the loophead lighthouse, you will see signs pointing to the Bridges of Ross, it did not not come up on my sat nav, and so ended up entering GPS coordinates from Google Maps. Fabulous place to visit, was a bit off...More

Had a very refreshing (for which read windy) walk, enjoying the views, the local plants and the sound of the waves.

We started going to this site some years ago, when there were three bridges. Unfortunately a fierce Atlantic storm wiped out one bridge, but the area is still magnificent. If you want spectacular scenery and the humbling experience of meeting nature as a powerful force,...More

There is a bridge, it's just not a man-made bridge. It's a natural bridge formed by erosion from the surf. Originally there were three natural bridges, but two collapsed in the 18th century. After you walk over the bridge... More
