A day trip from Dublin, but worth the drive through Belfast and to see the scenery. Once there, it is a long walk to the actual bridge. And once there, if it starts to rain, its not too much fun. The bridge itself is very...More

The Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge provides amazing views and an incredible adrenaline rush when you are waiting to cross and when you cross. BUT USE EXTREME CAUTION. From what I witnessed, the most difficult part is the walk to the bridge, which is sloped and crowded....More

The parking is free but you have to pay for an hour time slot to walk down and cross the bridge. Free to National Trust members.
