Crossing the Rope Bridge is a real challenge. For body and mind. First of all it's dangling like a dog's tail and additionally it seems very fragile (but isn't of course). Wind was quite strong at the day we were there and you could really feel it on the bridge. I took the picture from a point an the new circular walk which leads you higher up the coast and then of course back to the entrance. It is always worth a visit and you should include a walk to the Giant's Causeway which is connected to Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge by a coastal trail.
But be aware that the bridge is not accessible all the time.
For the opening times:
Thanks for looking.

Kia ora Andre,
Good shot in which you have captured the 'riskiness' of this interesting bridge. Nice soft light. Cheers, Neil

I am not very brave when it comes to heights & old ' rope ' bridges - I like your POV & the scenery is very nice - the day looked very cold I imagine it would have been a bit windy as well - therefore I would not have liked to be the young woman walking across the bridge.
