Well signposted on the causeway coastal route, we found it with ease as far from Ballycastle. There's ample free parking and a cafe/souvenir shop ajoining the car park.To access the bridge you pay £5.90 ( adult ) and take the enjoyable 0.3mile walk along the paved coastal path to the bridge. There's maybe 15-20 steps you must go down. The... More

Lovely rainy morning spent at the bridge. Very lucky due to the weather the bridge was quite so plenty of time to take in the amazing views and take LOTS of photos. Staff were so nice answering all our questions and really great with the kids. It is a long walk from the car park, some of which is quite... More

Lovely walk from the car park with spectacular views .My husband crossed the bridge , however I didn't realize how scary it was until I was feet away from the steps . But with gentle persuasion and guidance from David ( National Trust staff ) who stopped all pedestrians from crossing, helped me across to the delight of everyone (... More

It's a bit of a hike from the car park to the bridge so wear sturdy footwear but it is beautiful so there are lots of spots for a good photo. The bridge itself is exactly as advertised, an old rope bridge. It does attract quite large queues as only 8 people can be on the bridge at a time... More

We visited the Rope Bridge on our way to Giants Causeway as my daughter and partner wanted to cross it. My husband who is afraid of heights also decided to conquer his fear and cross the bridge encouraged by a lovely guide called Lawrence who has been working there for a number of years. My fear of heights was too... More

So many photo opportunities on the walk down/up, as the views are breathtaking. Good sturdy footwear is a must, as it is a long walk up and down and there are a lot of loose stones covering the ground and steps, but once you cross the bridge, be aware it is very bouncy, it is worth the journey. If you... More
