Quite a trek to get to the actual bridge, a strenuous kilometre or so. To cross the bridge is £8, the usual National Trust rip off, but it does have to be maintained. Pretty scary, but worth doing...especially the scenery.

This I’m an easily be tacked onto Giants Causeway visit, either before or after. This place is very crowded with tourists just like Giants Causeway. You may want to come here first as it closes earlier than Giants, that way you don’t risk missing out...More

This bridge is a great fund raiser but a rip off! Costs 8 pounds. Thousands do it! The people are like Lemmings. The bridge is very stable, short and not a challenge in the least! The area is beautiful so you can walk down near...More

It was a very mixed day weather wise when we arrived, so recommend taking raincoat/brolly as it just came on suddenly. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the bridge and it is not too taxing, but the steps are fairly strenuous. However, you...More

Beautiful place to visit but the walk to the bridge and across the bridge is not for the faint hearted or indeed for those with a disability. However, that aside the walk was so nice and the views are breath taking. The bridge is much...More

Nice walk and pretty view of the coast line and water. The bridge is a very tame walk. Some people looked terrified, but it is not very high, is sturdy and very safe. Actual bridge is not very long. Try Capilano bridge in Vancouver if...More

Great way to pass a few hours. There's a 20 min walk to the bridge with beautiful coastal views. The bridge is wobbly which adds to the fun, not as long as seems in photos. Beware of queues. We had a 10 min wait for...More

We arrived early at Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge because we had heard that the lines could get long. We waited to cross to the island for about 20 minutes. Not too long. Children must walk across the bridge and they, naturally, go slowly. The views on...More

Visited Sunday 12th August with family home from London and Vienna. The elderly gentleman at the entrance was so welcoming and lovely great start to our visit. The wait of an hour to access the bridge enabled us to buy tickets and return later after...More

A lovely coastal area to look around. When you arrive you are told how long until the next ticket tour is available - I think we had to wait about an hour as it was quite busy. It’s a nice little crossing across the bridge...More

Hi Lydia, You can certainly view the area (cannot really see the bridge) from the parking area and there is a nice cafe with tables and benches outside. The views are gorgeous. If you can get them to take you there is a... More

You will NOT be able to see the bridge from far away. The walk is a hike, I'll admit it, but, you know...I have a bad knee and only one bone in my left leg from childhood cancer...and I did it. It's all a matter of what... More

Definitely not. This bridge is to dangerous to do that.
