A must-see stop on your tour of Northern Ireland. Feels like you are standing at the edge of the world. The bridge is one of the sturdier rope bridges I've crossed, though the drop is pretty steep, so those with fear of heights may not...More

If you don't like heights, or wobbly bridges, perhaps this isn't for you, but I'd still tell you to go! We've been twice now and have really enjoyed it. I absolutely love walking over this bridge. The view from it is the best and the...More

All revved up for the high-adrenalin portion of the causeway route for the weather to let me down. Was still worth the walk to the bridge as it is stunning coastline and I got to see what I have to face when I return (in...More

A small adventure like feeling gets in your head the moment you put a step on the bridge. The wind, so much that you have to use both your hands to hold yourself up there. It is a famous tourist attraction so there will always...More

Carrick-A-Rede is a stunning place right on the ocean. The colours are brilliant, the walk is calming and serene... Then you get to the rope bridge. You climb down these steep stairs where you reach the rope bridge. The day I crossed was a windy,...More

Crossing the bridge was a thrill - although it's well-supported and perfectly safe you can still see the sea below you if you look down. I don't like to be cynical about these things and can see many other reviewers really enjoyed crossing the bridge...More

Carrick a Rede rope bridge is an amazing experience. Entrance is free to walk along the cliffs and be amazed at the scenery. There is an entrance fee (National Trust) to cross the rope bridge from mainland to tiny Carrick Island. The bridge spans 20m...More

I just loved it! Visiting in winter, we were alone on the 1.1km walk to the rope bridge. The weather was clear and still. The views breathtaking. The rope bridge crossing is actually quite short and very sturdy. The story behind it even more compelling....More

£8 each, they don’t make it clear when entering, you can walk right up to bridge for free, if you don’t want to cross, giants causeway the same, pay going through shop or free as an ulter way through bridge.
