Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge


Take the exhilarating rope bridge challenge to Carrick-a-Rede island and enjoy a truly clifftop experience. Near the North Antrim Coast Road, amid unrivalled coastal scenery, the 30-metre deep and 20-metre wide chasm is traversed by a rope bridge that was traditionally erected by salmon fishermen.
 
Visitors bold enough to cross from the cliffs to the rocky island (which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest) are rewarded fantastic birdwatching and splendid uninterrupted views to Rathlin and the Scottish islands.
