Visited here with our kids and after a short walk joined the queue to cross the bridge. Views along the coastal path are stunning. Crossing the bridge itself was only about 10 to 15 seconds but being suspended 30m above the sea gives it a bit of a thrill. It was a bit windy when we visited and the staff were very good and guided my 8 year old back across. Certificates were purchased on the way back as proof that they had completed it.

Parents with young children in buggies might want to think about doing this as there are a number of steps that need to be walked to get down and back. Apart from that it is fairly easy going.

Stunning scenery and views of the Antrim coast and even Islay and the Mull of Kintyre to the north. Dont think I would fancy doing the hike and then tackle the bridge like the had to back in the day.

Didn't realize the distance to the bridge from the parking lot till you actually get on the trail, but the walk itself is as enjoyable as the rope bridge.

Stunning views of the coastline! The bridge itself is quite short and there was quite a crowd.

Would be a shame to miss the experience though, and would definitely recommend doing it.

The view from the bridge area is absolutely amazing. Crossing the bridge itself can look like a scare thing to do at first, but its actually very safe

Really pleasant walk along the cliffs and, when we were there, not too crowded. At least they tell you how long you may have to wait to get onto the bridge. Bridge is more a plank bridge than a rope one, but it is suspended on ropes. You can get a certificate to say you've done it!
