Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge is a popular tourist attraction and is one of the most beautiful places on the north coast of Northern Ireland. It offers spectacular views and an unforgettable experience.
The bridge is 23 metres high and links to a small Island where you can enjoy a view of Scotland and Rathlin Island. You will also be able to enjoy the views on the walk down to the bridge.
The old bridge, consisted of one rope hand rail was used by Salmon fishermen. There has been some form of bridge used by fishermen to get across to the island for over 300 years. However, they no longer fish here as most of the salmon are gone. Instead, a new ‘very safe’ bridge has been built and it is only used as a tourist attraction.
