At this attraction, there is a nice cafe to have lunch. When you buy a ticket for the crossing, you are given a time to cross the bridge because there are so many people going over and coming back on the rope bridge. The walk...More

Carrick-A-Rede is one of the MUST VISIT attractions in Northern Ireland. Tickets (bought on-site) include free parking. The views of rocky cliffs & the Atlantic Ocean are fantastic. The 60 foot rope bridge is safe, fun, & exhilarating! Try to visit this site early (before...More

We were lucky and had a beautiful day so the views and scenery were amazing. A bit of a walk to get to the bridge and several steps so probably not for everyone. The bridge crossing was fun, even though I don’t like heights or...More

This was included as part of a Game of Thrones tour, and I'm VERY glad it was. It's quite a walk (there is a shuttle bus available for £1 per person per trip), but the views and the experience are completely worth it.

Thought this was great fun to go across but I kept my eyes on the other side and didn't look down! It definitely shakes. And if you are concerned whether you can do it or not, be the last one and don't hold up everyone!

This was so much fun! The rope bridge was a thrill but we felt completely safe crossing. The island on the other side was so fun to roam around and explore. The views were incredible. Wear comfy shoes because the walk from the ticket hut...More

Situated in Ballintoy, the Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge is a must for visitors. After entering the site and purchasing tickets, visitors need to walk the path down to where the bridge is located before climbing down the iron steps and crossing the bridge. Visitors must have...More

The walk to the rope bridge and the shaky bridge itself are not for the faint hearted one with walking difficulties! The path is quite steep and there are lots of steps on the way, but the effort is worthwhile for the views and the...More

Oh my! What an experience! Not sure I would do this again but I’m glad I did it once. The walk to the bridge was much farther than anticipated, my 65 year old body was tested. But the scenery was spectacular!

Carrick a Rede rope bridge. Second biggest attraction in the area along with Giants Causeway. 80 feet above sea level. The bridge leads to the salmon fishery. If you don't mind a walk to this attraction then lots of steps down before you get to...More

Hi there no just 1 fee of £8 per person at the white cabin. Then you have fair walk to reach the bridge. We were lucky to get a good sunny day. After you have done the walk across at the white cabin where you paid you will... More

coast road is gorgeous as others have said, but the bridge gets really busy, so I'd grab the hire car, drive straight there on the inland main road and hope to avoid the queues, and then take the coast road leisurely back to... More

There were quite a few steep steps to the bridge. The walk to the bridge is fairly long, but reasonable. It might be tiring for some.
