We stopped at the rope bridge as part of a day tour in the area. The walk along the coastline was gorgeous and it took us about 25 minutes to get to the bridge with a little stopping to take pictures and enjoy the area....More

Went Monday 12th June 2017 and was surprised that they charged £7 to walk the half mile to the rope bridge. The views are stunning and the rope bridge is excellent but charging £7 to enter the "site" is scandalous.

We were blessed with a perfect day, and this site was very cool. The coast line is beautiful and the bridge is a thrill (this will not be for everyone, it is high and does bounce). Do be aware that there is a 10-15 minute...More

There is a walk to the bridge from the first booth and they charge for crossing the bridge. If you don't want to cross, you can get pretty close. We paid to cross but that is basically all you get to do. The bridge leads...More

Beautiful colors when the sun shines. The water is green and the cliffs are stunning. I really recommend this destination.

My wife and I visited here on a wet and gloomy day, it was still very nice but wouldn't say it is amazing, nice views, price is a bit expensive though

The rope bridge is a fun little stop. The views from the surrouding area are magnificent. This is on both sides of the bridge so if you don't want to cross the bridge, that's ok too. It is a little bit of a walk to...More

About a 10-15 minute walk to get to, the carrick-a-rede bridge is well worth the hike. Definitely suggest wearing hiking shoes or tennis shoes. To cross the bridge, you must pay 5 euro and 50 cent (I believe this is the price). We stopped here...More

If it is raining you might want to give this place a pass because it is a bit of a hike from the parking lot out to the rope bridge. IT wasn't when we were there and we saw really nice views of the countryside,...More

There is no time limit, although they do control how many people go across the bridge at a time. When we were there part of the island was closed off because of the nesting birds, and there has been some erosion. It is more... More

I will be visiting northern Ireland from the USA in June, and this attraction looks like it will be worth stopping to see. Is there a Visitor's Center associated with this bridge, to learn more about it? Is there also a gift shop or a place to buy food/snacks? Thanks in advance!!
