The rope bridge is included among the beauty of Ireland, but among them is certainly the least interesting. The road to get there is panoramic and quite nice (but as almost all in Ireland) and as soon as you get to the parking lot it...More

At first glance, you're thinking "NO WAY!" Believe me, you'll be fine. As another reviewer said, go early and wear good walking shoes. The walk to the bridge is a long one, up and down steps and sometimes steep climbs. The views are amazing though,...More

We had been to the giants causeway so decided to pay a visit here. Wasn't as long a rope bridge as we thought it was going to be but we still enjoyed it. It is a long walk from the visitor centre to the bridge...More

Definitely try to get here as early as you can when it opens to avoid the rush of tour buses and crowds. It was a bit of a hike down to the bridge, but the views were well worth the trip. Just stunning. There is...More

We did this as part of a Wild Rover tour and ours wasn't the only bus there. I would liked to have had more time to walk the paths and less time waiting, but we completely enjoyed it.

The Rope Bridge area was closed when we arrived, but the trail was still open for walking. We decided to walk around and view the scenery and we were glad we did. This bridge isn't far at all from the Giant's Causeway so I think...More

Parking is free and access to see the bridge is free. UT you pay £7 to cross the bridge (worth the fee) It's quite a walk uphill and down lots of steps to get to it from the car park and the weather can change...More

It's a nice experience to walk over the bridge, but you are in a queue and don't really get to experience it in your own way. Over and back in 30 seconds for almost £20 for the family. Too over priced but of course the...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.

I am not sure but the local on site Restaurant does so I would assume that payment booth for the Bridge would also accommodate.
